Ocklawahaman Paul Nosca, who strives for accuracy & honesty, worships zealously a more natural Ocklawaha River Valley that includes the restoration of the 56 river miles from Silver Springs to the St. Johns as a free-flowing stream. He is a member of NO environmental organization but volunteers his Ocklawaha experience, observations, research, & sources to groups that share his zeal for this old "crooked river." Ocklawahaman has fished, hunted, & explored the Florida outdoors since 1962. More of his outdoor time has been spent in the Ocklawaha River Basin than anywhere else.

Ocklawahaman Paul Nosca's Bass Fishing Began in Florida Some 55 Years Ago (1965)!

Ocklawahaman Paul Nosca is an accomplished stream angler who has caught nine different varieties of bass plus three different species of cold-water trout along with many other fishes from the flowing freshwaters of several Southern states. Although he has fished many of the still-water canals, lakes, & ponds plus salty tidewaters that almost all other Florida fishermen are accustomed-to & greatly prefer; river bass angling in current is undeniably Paul's preferred pursuit. Paddling a canoe (or bank-walking & wading when advantageous), Ocklawahaman skillfully uses buzz-bait & spinner-bait lures almost exclusively while bass fishing moving freshwater. Motorized watercraft for "run & gun" fishing or other aquatic tomfoolery & plastic worms or live shiners for bait are not part of his personal angling ethic. Ocklawahaman practices a style of bass fishing on natural segments of streams that is ideally an aesthetically pleasing & "un-crowded" solemn quest for some of Nature's most game fishes; the great majority of bass caught to be released unharmed for future benefit. North-central Florida's swift-flowing Ocklawaha River is the home water of Ocklawahaman; it is where Paul Nosca first learned freshwater stream angling techniques & where he continues to employ them as often as possible--from his man-powered canoe.
