RFT GEAR - Introducing the RFT Quick Flex Blanks

I always try to have my ear to the ground to hear what's new within the fiberglass fly rod realm and a few months ago was tipped off that Jussi Sojakka of RFT Gear was working on a series of blanks that immediately perked my interest.  I typically prefer glass rods in nearly all line weights that measure eight foot in length or less and his 7'4" 4-weight and 7'6" 5-weight sounded like neat offerings.    The RFT Quick Flex blanks and fly rods are available now in both four and five weights and ho...

Jerry Falwell Jr. tries to have “certain pictures” excluded from evidence in upcoming trial

The fallout from the Jerry Falwell pool boy sex scandal continues. A judge has upheld most of a multi-million dollar lawsuit filed against the disgraced evangelical leader by his former employer, Liberty University, in the aftermath of last summer’s scandal. Last Friday, Lynchburg Circuit Judge Fred Watson denied Falwell’s attorneys motions to have the case dismissed, which means it’s one step closer to going to trail, where things will no doubt get very, very ugly.

The lush, painterly quality of a photograph taken with an iPhone 12 — in the woods under overcast skies, 11 minutes before sunrise.

Click and click again for a closer look. It was 5:48 on the morning after a heavy thunderstorm. I stopped in the middle of my sunrise run to get a photo of the big tree limb that crossed the path. The other shot, taken 10 seconds earlier, does not show the same effect:   I can't explain the difference. I only took photographs to document the phenomenon of falling tree branches, a safety hazard the forest walker/runner must consider. [Author: [email protected] (Ann Althouse)]

Bolivia’s indigenous female wrestlers mid-flight: Todd Antony’s best photograph

‘These women wrestle for their mental and physical health – and to stick two fingers up at a male wrestling culture. Capturing them mid-flight was tricky’ Bolivia’s cholitas luchadoras began wrestling in the early 2000s. The women, indigenous Aymara Indians who have traditionally been marginalised and oppressed, took to Mexican-style lucha libre wrestling for mental and physical health – and to stick two fingers up to a culture where wrestling was strictly a male preserve. For many it was also a...
