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 Vedavoo, 2 Guys and a River, & FishFinder.
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.
Vedavoo – Christmas Island Pack Setup
I love my Vedavoo gear. The versatility is just one reason why they have become my go-to storage packs for all types of fishing. In a post on the blog, there is some great advice and examples for loading up a pack for flats fishing. The piece in question, the Tightlines Deluxe, is the same pack that I use for most of my trout fishing. If you’re interested in a sling that can handle mountains and islands, check out this post for some of the ways that you can be flexibile with Vedavoo.
2 Guys and a River – Fly Fishing Proverbs
I’ve weighed in on bad fly fishing sayings before. Steve, one of the two guys from 2 Guys and a River, just penned a piece on some legitimate maxims from fly fishing legends. A proverb can stick in your consciousness in a way that a prolonged discourse will inevitably leak out and… well, just read the post.
FishFinder – Choosing Trout Flies
If you’ve been fly fishing for a long time, you probably still get stumped from time to time looking at your fly box and wondering what you should use. Imagine what it feels like for a beginner! Over at FishFinder Source, they put up a great synopsis of choosing flies. It walks a person through some basics, like size, color, and contrast. Give it a read as a refresher, or pass it along to someone who is just getting started.
