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 Redington, Wish4Fish, & Fishing Small Streams
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.

Who doesn’t like to stand out? Whether you have a neon pink fly rod or an antique click-pawl reel, you’re making a statement of some sort. Redington has now given anglers the ability to personalize their reel in a snap. The i.D reel features replaceable graphic panels that you can buy from Redington or customize. The reel itself (what truly matters) is great: if you like the Behemoth, you’ll be pleased with the performance of the disc drag, large arbor i.D. Until 12/18, i.D reel purchases from Redington.com include 2 day shipping and 3 decals.
Ken Tanaka of Wish4Fish has a killer giveaway going until 12/22. If you follow him and a number of his partners then tag some friends, you’ll be in the running for some of his branded clothes, a Douglas Outdoors reel, some Tacky Boxes, and more! Wish4Fish is great fly fishing contest for the 21st century angler. And at the core, it is all about having fun fishing and enjoying the tying, travel, and technique that go into it.
In the Dewey Decimal system of cataloging fly fishing writing, I’m not sure what tenth or hundredth “winter fishing story” blogs fall into. But I don’t care. It is some of my favorite stuff to read. I came across Fishing Small Streams and the most recent post, December. We’ve all been there: cold, slow, fishing. Maybe celebrating the victories and commiserating in the doldrums is what makes it fun to read. Check out the post and the rest of the blog.
