Seems like I've been ready for this for a while now!

Seems like I've been ready for this for a while now! A cool front is to push through tonight giving Central Florida some pseudo-fall, ideal camping temps! Just hope it doesn't put the bass and bluegill down because there's some very fishy looking water here!!

Adventure Medical

I had to spend some money in my FSA last month, so I decided it was a good time to update and upgrade my first aid kits. I ordered three kits from Adventure Medical. The yellow is the Ultralight and Watertight .5 that'll be shared between my sling pack and kayak bag. The blue is the Mountain Series Fundamentals kit that'll stay in the truck. And, the Orange bag is the Sportsman Series Grizzly that I'll keep in the camper. I always feel better having a good FAK handy!!

Good spot!

Good spot for a pipe break and to formulate a game plan! Study the water, rocks and cover. Mentally break the stream into unique zones. Fish each zone methodically. Lather. Rinse. Repeat.

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!
