Most Fridays on Casting Across are devoted to other people’s contributions in the fly fishing community. Articles, pictures, social media accounts, videos, podcasts, products, and more will be featured on The Last Cast of the Week.
Today, I’m sharing items from AFFTA, Teton Tenkara, and Gink & Gasoline.
If you’d like to be featured in the Last Cast of the Week, or have seen something that others might be interested in, use my contact form or shoot me an email (matthew[at]castingacross[dot]com). Also, be sure to subscribe to Casting Across to never miss a post.
AFFTA – Recycled Paper Fly Boxes
In hindsight, some things are so simple that it is hard to believe that it has taken this long to figure it out. Ditching disposable, plastic fly boxes for paper makes sense on so many levels. And with three sizes, there is absolutely no reason for a shop to not explore using these containers for everything from midges to meaty pike flies. If your local shop experiments with these, let them know what you think!
Teton Tenkara – Fly Fishing Books
If you read Casting Across, you are probably aware that I hold fly fishing books in high esteem. Although I have a pretty sizable and diverse library, my fly tying section is limited. In this second post on the great blog Teton Tenkara, a handful of tying titles are put forth for your consideration. There is a brief synopsis of each book, as well as a few helpful notes from the blogger. If you’re looking to add a classic tying tome to your shelf, these are some good options.
Gink & Gasoline – Pay to Play
This post, by Justin Pickett, is the blogging equivalent to chumming for piranha. The premise of the short piece is this question: What do you think about pay-to-fish waters? At the moment I’m writing this, there are over 70 comments. It is a good question to ask, think about, and answer. This topic, with some pretty far-reaching implications, is always going to be on the radar of the fly fishing community. So… what do you think?
