About MKFF

Moose Knuckle Fly Fishing is a project created by a group of friends to contemplate life through the lens of a fly fisherman. Conceived by a team of New Jersey natives in an attempt to showcase the more creative aspects of outdoor recreation, this is their story.

col_right_calloutThe blog is dedicated to Fly Fishing and outdoor recreation. We hope to connect with everyone who is passionate about fly fishing, fishing, creative writing and photography in America’s great outdoors. We feature fishing blogs focused on the fly, trout, hard water and to a limited extent other pastimes.

Occasionally we feature “weekend warrior” blogs about riding motorcycles, snowmobiling, snowboarding and firearms. All of our content is designed to promote the active outdoor lifestyle of the Moose Knuckle brand.

Sarah Kapitko

A recent graduate of Binghamton University and a soon-to-be student at Syracuse University College of Law, Sarah has yet to convert to fly fishing. Not to worry, though. She holds her own with an open faced spinning reel and keeps up with the distinguished gentlemen of Moose Knuckle Fly Fishing. Being a part of a fishing family, Sarah started at a young age with her grandpa, reeling in baby bass on her hot pink fishing pole. And as she grew, so did her love for fishing. Sarah spends her time calling in favors in order to fish on privately owned ponds, and is determined to catch the New Jersey state record fish in one of them. Her contribution to the team will come into play when her cooking skills can be put to the test with a recipe for shad parmesan. But until then, she’ll just continue to keep the guys on their toes.
