Every now and then, 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 are featured on The Last Cast of the Week.
Today, I’m sharing items from:
- Risen Fly – Facebook
- Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife – Trout & Charr Conservation
- The New Fly Fisher – Knot Videos
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.

Risen Fly Fishing is going to hit 20,000 likes on Facebook today! That is an awesome accomplishment for a great company run by some great people. I’ve written plenty about the quality gear you can get at unbeatable prices – including their rod/reel kits. I have it on good hunch that something cool will happen once that milestone is achieved… So give Risen Fly a “Like” and stay tuned.
On the east coast, Maine is truly an unsung fly fishing destination. Historically and presently you’ll find some of the best native trout waters in the US. This strategic plan from MDIFW looks to preserve and restore their brook trout and arctic charr populations while maintaining and enhancing the fishing opportunities. Seem ambitious? Read more to see what they are up to.
If you read this post from earlier in the week, you know that I have an opinion on how you can “up” your knot game. Sometimes the hardest part is figuring out the mechanics of the individual knots. These quick, simple videos from The New Fly Fisher are way better than watching someone do it on a video or looking at a diagram in a book. Start with the perfection loop and go from there.
