15 days to go: Taylor Revolution reels!

With 15 days to go until IFTD and ICAST 2018, here's a lineup of Taylor Revolution reels! Have you seen the wild annodizing they've been doing lately? Really awesome stuff! And, check out my First Cast video on The Suburban Angler YouTube channel for my thoughts on an early Taylor Type 1 reel. I'm looking forward to seeing what they have in store for IFTD 2018!!

I'm still counting down to IFTD and ICAST 2018

I think I might've missed a couple days, but I'm still counting down to IFTD and ICAST 2018. For day 17, this is a hybrid kayak from the folks at Diablo Paddlesports! So may features on these awesome boats were built with flyfishers in mind. Love how clean you can get that deck!!

Still counting down with 27 days left until the largest fishing and flyfishing shows in the world!! At the 2017 IFTD Demo Day I was able to cast the new Waterworks-Lamson Center Axis rod and reel! To be honest with you, I've wanted more time with it ever since!! Check it out if you haven't already and let me know what you think if you've had the opportunity to cast one!

Down to 29 days left!! Throwback Countdown: Freestone Designs Go Box

Down to 29 days left, under a month, until IFTD and ICAST 2018!! Today's Countdown Throwback photo is the 2016 IFTD New Product Showcase Best Of Show Fly Tying/ Materials/ Equipment the Freestone Designs Go Box! How nice would it be to have your entire tying desk close up like a suitcase and be completely portable? It would be the envy of everyone at your local fly tying get together, that's for sure!!!

33 days to go!

33 days to go! Tonight's Countdown Throwback photo features the ARC Fishing booth. Obsessed about the technology and design of their lines, leaders and tippets, they say their 99 series lines are good for 99% of the conditions you'll encounter!! I've used them and had great experiences! @arcfishing

34 more days until IFTD/ICAST 2018!!!

34 more days until IFTD/ICAST 2018!!! Tonight's Throwback Countdown shot is the Finn Utility booth from IFTD 2014. One of the things that really holds appeal for me in fly fishing is it's history and tradition. These hand made accessories from Vermont combine modern utility with the traditional fly fishing aesthetic. All the Finn products are built tough, made to be used and will last generations! Check them out at and @finnutility.

Casting Practice

Had a fantastic evening for some after work casting practice on the beach last night!! Glad to see the water getting back to normal and the wind and rain giving us a break! The only way to improve fly casting is through practice, so practice every chance you get!!

IFTD Throwback Countdown

This probably should've been the first picture I posted for my IFTD Throwback Countdown series, but too late. This was right after I picked up my first Media Badge at ICAST and IFTD 2014. This year (2018) will be my 5th year attending!!
