Casting the Mauser Waterman 486

I was very impressed casting the Mauser Waterman 486 while I was in North Georgia! Testing will continue and video and write up will be posted as soon as I can get to it! Give @mauserflyfishing a follow and check them out if you haven't already.

Put My Ty-Rite, Jr. To Work!

Had the chance to put my Ty-Rite, Jr. to work on some size 14 Elk Hair Caddis! Makes it so much easier to hold on to small flies without crushing the fur or feathers.

Probably just creek chubs

Wish I had more time here, I love exploring these beautiful places. Unfortunately, with the small window of time I had to fish, the trout were being very uncooperative. Got a few strikes, but nothing to hand. Probably just creek chubs anyway.

New Beer!

One of the cool parts of attending this year's Orvis Down The Hatch was getting to sample Sweetwater Brewing Company's new Guide Beer!! A smooth, easy drinking lager, 4% ABV, perfect for cooling down after a hot float on the water. And, one of the nicest things I've heard in a while, 11% of all sales will go into a Guide Fund. Guides who have been injured or affected by natural disaters will be able to apply for a grant from the fund to help them get through hard times. Way to go, Sweetwater!!!!

About to get underway!

The 2018 Orvis Down the Hatch Fly Fishing Festival is about to get underway!
