In tonight's MCFF Fly Tying Meeting Capt. Dick Withey shared a proven effective tarpon fly, the Tarpon Gurgler! Before we began tying, Capt. Dick went over the situations in which to use the fly, how the fly should be presented to tarpon, how to work the fly to trigger a bite response and variations of colors and materials of the fly itself. If you're interested in learning more about fly tying and fly fishing I encourage you to join us! The Mid Coast Fly Fishers meet in New Smyrna Beach on the second and third Monday of each month!

Trying to recreate a fly I saw on Pinterest. They called it a Redfish Seaducer. The Seaducer is one of my favorite saltwater flies to tie and fish, so I'm hoping this variation will be successful!

A good way to round out a relaxing Saturday! I've been enjoying Tom Rosenbauer's newly revised and updated Orvis Fly-Tying Guide. It's full of background information on tying tools, materials and techniques, as well as step by step instructions and page after page of fly recipes. Please let me know any questions you may have about the book and I'll be sure to address them in the full review!

While in Tampa, I had to seek out a fly shop and Tampa Bay On The Fly inside the Minnows & Monsters tackle shop is top notch!! They've got a fantastic fly tying section (with weekly tying classes!) and a growing assortment of rods, reels and gear. I hope to come back and visit again someday, but I really look forward to seeing them at IFTD in a couple months! If you're in the area stop by and tell them I sent you!

We had a great afternoon walking the Outdoor Life Field & Stream Expo this afternoon! The show was mostly geared toward hunting, but there were a few fishing tackle retailers there and even one that had a handful of flies! Lots of neat products to see, but it's been so long since I've had an opportunity to hunt, it definitely made me want to get back into the field!

The survivalist in me really enjoyed checking out these Worldwide Survival Systems Ditch Packs. From a small, single hiker/kayaker pack up to the huge Poseidon 950 4 person/4+ day, 50 pound waterproof case, they've pretty much got you covered in any on the water emergencies!
