THROWBACK THURSDAY - THE LADDER DIARIES

With destination fly fishing and media, it seems that there are cycles where all you'll hear, read and see highlights a particular place and then it goes fairly quiet only to refresh sometime later with everyone going back to that place and again talking about it again.  After several years of only it only being a blip on the radar every now and again, Pyramid Lake with it's Lahontan Cutthroat are suddenly all over my social media feeds along with it showing up on various blogs and in videos.Cou...

Spring can't come soon enough and this week's LOON LIVE session, which is hosted by Matt Callies of Loon Outfitters, will jump start things with two nifty nymph patterns that you need in your fly boxes with the Free Bird and Down Town Brown.

6 Good Reads

We're on a Spring Break road trip that started in California last Friday, then a drive through Nevada and now in Utah visiting family and putting stamps in the children's National Park Passports.  I'm fitting in some "T.F.M. business" in the backseat of the minivan while the wife is behind the wheel towards Bryce Canyon National Park.  T.F.M. posts first and emails next. "Dad Life" (minus the clunky white New Balance kicks) meets "Hack Blogger Life"...Here's a six pack of internet articles worth...

Gear: GhostTech Strike Indicators

Except for the purists who either shun or don't need them, anglers dating back to Izaak Walton have been searching for the perfect bobber  strike indicator. Ok I seriously doubt Mr. Walton used an indicator, but you get the idea.  The latest entry into the fray comes from GhostTech and features a three leaf clover design.  What do you think?  Check out their website.

Tackle Warehouse Opener 2019

Goal Achieved: Under Technique and Tackle Goals It was so nice out today (68℉) I went down and opened up the Tackle Warehouse for the first time this year.  It's definitely on the late end for a TWO thanks to the snow, but not the latest either. Earlier this month I also achieved the getting the Trolling Motor fixed goal.  It's got a brand new head thanks to them having one just laying around.  I should work at low speeds now.  Hooray! The lakes should be open by the weekend (4 more days). [A...

RIVERSMITH - Crosswaters: The Compound

The folks at Riversmith recently kicked off a shortie film series dubbed Crosswaters and this episode featuring Jacob Shields, owner of The Compound in Sarasota, Florida, is pretty neat.  Fly fishing needs more people who aren't afraid of "doing it wrong".  A surf, skate, paddle and fly shop all under one roof sounds pretty rad and both of our children (who are into all those things) would think it's pretty cool as well.Check out the Riversmith website to check out their River Quiver rod holders...

THE MIDWEST DRIFT - 6 Flies for Spring Bass

It's really feeling like spring around here with warmer days, the dogwoods in full bloom, The Masters going on just up the road in Augusta and our lawn has already gotten a haircut twice so far.  I'm ready to focus on all the different warmwater species that are around us from the family pond to the river and all the little creeks and secret spots in between.This week I was thinking that it would be neat to tap the shoulders of a handful of custom fly tiers around the country to see what fly pat...

Lipless And BP

Lipless cranks are a lure that I had pretty good success with occasionally before I moved North in 2003.  For whatever reason, I haven't been on a good trap bite in years.  I've caught a fish here and there on them or nothing, definitely no memorable whackfests.  I've got the right equipment and dozens of lures. Maybe 2019 will be the year.The Tactical Bassin video brought the subject to mind. [Author: [email protected] (Basspastor)]

SIGHT LINE PROVISIONS - The Cone Denim Project

If you're a regular reader of The Fiberglass Manifesto, then you've likely seen articles that Dave Fason of NanoBox Reef has contributed to on his various travels with a fiberglass fly rod in hand and then also the work he continues to with rod builder Chris Barclay of C. Barclay Fly Rod Co.  Over the past couple of years I've gotten to know him through phone calls, emails and texts and earlier this year I had the opportunity to travel with him to Belize to check out things at South Water Advent...

LOON OUTDOORS - Rogue Quickjaw Mitten Clamps & Forceps

Saturday morning I was scrambling around to get all the gear together that Finn and I would need for our day of playing in the creek.  I guess I'm kind of behind my usual early spring schedule of already having all my warmwater fly boxes, leaders and tippets spools, tools and other miscellaneous things packed up in it's own gear bag waiting for the next trip.  Rummaging through plastic storage boxes and gear bags at 5:00 a.m., before enough coffee, is the recipe for forgetting something you'll n...

Gear: reel pure Edition

Today the mailman brought a package from a brand I have known since the early days of the fly fishing blogger community.  I have always liked the simple logo and, even though it's well over a decade old, my  reel pure hat is still one that I regularly grab when I fish or just want to look like a fly guy. Check out their website reelpure.com.   Offerings are limited for the moment (bald guys like me can't do visors) but we have it on good authority that there is more to come in the near future. ...

SIERRA NETS - The Net Maker & Brook Trout Custom Net

I have long admired the work of Greg Madrigal of Sierra Nets and he recently he released a video which tells the story of how his small shop company came to be that is worth checking out.   Greg's woodworking skills are where function meets high art to create something truly special and one of a kind. To show off some of Greg's recent work, I lifted a few photographs from the Sierra Nets Facebook page of a brook trout themed custom net that is just over the top, which is typical for him and what...

A Little Too Early

As the weekend approached, Finn and I knew that we were on our own all day Saturday as my wife and daughter had obligations at church.  Finn wanted to go fishing and when I gave him the option of spending the day on our family pond or taking a road trip to the "secret creek" that a friend had introduced me to a couple of years ago, he was all in to try something new.I had traded text messages with Jeff of Tribe the week before and he had shared a couple of map pins of where to go so that Finn an...
