Hero Shots!

Here's a few photos from Sunday's float with the Wolfman. Hard to believe no one wanted to sit in the rear seat, so I was forced to take full advantage.  Thanks to all the Minions for, once again, not burning our place down.

Key West T.R.

You know the drill, polydactyl cats, Margaritaville, cigars, conch fritters and coral sand.
Thursday was to be my "fishing day," and it was.  You'll have to watch the Tarpon video on Nori's Facebook page as I can't get it to upload to YouTube.

The cherry on top of a pretty good day!

Your fly fishing guide now has some swag...

When all else fails give them the
Let not forget the fish that everyone wants to hook

 and lets not forget the fly to do it

You can study hard, get straight As, go to an ivy league school, become a doctor, a physicist, a billionaire investor… You can work out, run triathlons, be an olympian, have six pack abs… BUT if you don’t use your brains and your body to become a better fly fisher, none of that other junk matters.

Tying the Venerable, I mean Mythical, Eastern Green Drake

via BrooksBrownsanBows.com on Vimeo.com

EASTERN GREEN DRAKE from Brooks Browns & Bows on Vimeo.

This must be a scam.  Nothing this large and complicated could possibly be a real mayfly.
This must be a crowd-sourcing ploy to get the largest number of people possible to tie one of these monstrosities.  But April Fools is long past?
Maybe not?

High Fishing Fashion

For my friends who are slaves to the world of fashion, I bring you the latest relevant works by Barbour and Ted Baker.
 Feast your fashionista eyes upon the "Bream Waistcoat,"
 The "Fly" waterproof jacket,
The "Thornback Polo,"

 The "Tight Lines Blazer,"
and finally the "Jumping Trout Shirt."

All that's standing between you and fashion heaven is the departure of hard earned dollars / pounds.

Trout Rodeo!

The 19th annual Trout Rodeo will be held rain or shine Saturday, May 3rd at Kennett Square’s Anson B. Nixon Park on North Walnut Street.

600 trout ranging in size from 12 to 22 inches have been stocked. The trout were released on Friday via refrigerated truck from Cherry Valley Trout Hatchery in Stroudsburg.
Trophies and prizes will be awarded to children for the largest fish and for the highest five-trout limit weight.

A Pennsylvania fishing license for 16 years old and older is required.
Children five and under are free.
The tickets today are adults, $12; children 6 to 15, $6.

To increase your trout fishing knowledge and enjoyment, members of the White Clay Fly Fishermen will be demonstrating the fine art of fly-tying during the rodeo.

Refreshments and raffle tickets will of course, be on sale.

Friday Bacon!

Known throughout my lifetime as the preferred vehicle for lifting tasty hors d'oeuvres from your plate to your pie hole have just been miraculously transformed from really good to laser awesome.  Even plain old peanut butter just got kicked up a notch.
Behold, bacon flavored Ritz crackers!

If you're like me, you're unendingly engaged in self-deprivation aimed at making a little less of yourself, quite literally.  And are you tired of the same old flavors for your weight loss shakes?  Have chocolate, vanilla, strawberry and banana grown weary.  I have discovered an optimal solution.
Behold, bacon and brown gravy flavored diet shakes!

New solutions for the problems you didn't even know you had are my gift to you on this fine Friday, so enjoy, enjoy!

As you were...
