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 Virginia Trout Junkies, Hatch Magazine, & PowerRay.

Virginia Trout Junkies – Facebook
I’ve been following these guys on Instagram for a while, but recently browsed through their Facebook page when I was writing my post on the South River. They catch fish: big fish and lots of fish. But that is only the surface. They’re involved in conservation, promotion of the resource, and fostering community. This is social media at its best in the fly fishing. Give them a follow, regardless of if you’re in the Mid-Atlantic or not, and check out what they’re up to.
Hatch Magazine – Classic Fly Fishing Books
As a devotee of collecting historically significant fly fishing books , this article popped out at me immediately. The three volumes mentioned in the post are perfect examples of everything good in classic fly fishing literature: they are about real, meticulous technique… while at the same time still communicating the joy and excitement of fishing. Even if you are a diehard winter angler, these months are the perfect opportunity to read something new – which might be something old.
Have you ever wanted to take your Roomba fishing? Well, the good folks at PowerVision have made that possible. Part fish finder, part lure delivery system, all unbelievable – this would definitely earn you a reputation at the local tailwater. All kidding aside, this luxurious toy would be a heck of a lot of fun to use as an underwater drone. I anticipate something like this will be used in fly fishing films soon. But probably not to get your nymph into a feeding lane.
