Last Cast of the Week, 12/9/2016

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 Simms, Fly Rod Chronicles, & Angling Trade / TU.

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.


Simms – Gift Guide

One of the premier soft goods manufacturers in the industry, Simms has set itself apart in so many facets of clothing, waders, and packs. And while their premium products often carry premium price tags, they have a significant selection of more modestly priced items. Conviniently published in time for the holiday season, they have offered up a “gifts under $50” site. There are some real good things on there (I like the patch fly box, the mesh reel pouch, the dry bag…). It is a simple click and share option for making sure your “wants” are known.

Fly Rod Chronicles – YouTube

Along with the sizzle reel  from the show that the above link will direct you to, Fly Rod Chronicles with Curtis Fleming  has posted three great episodes in the last month.  These free, 20-minute videos on YouTube cover some great fishing content: fishing with Jerry West, hitting the salmon fly hatch, and more. Along with these newer shows, there is an extensive back catalog that will make for some great downtime entertainment or fly tying ambiance.

Angling Trade / TU –  Eastern Fires & Trout

Wildfires are interesting things. This fall has seen plenty across the country, with a number in the southeast. On one hand they are so very natural. On the other, they are destructive and frightening. While we can never lose sight of the effects of these fires on people, fly fishers are understandably concerned about the consequences for trout. This brief article answers some questions, potentially eases some concerns, and also  raises awareness.
