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 Fly Rod & Reel, Moonshine Rod Company, & Pinterest.
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).

If current events in the fly fishing world have taught us anything, it is that the stalwarts of the angling scene shouldn’t be taken for granted. The fish kill on the Yellowstone it significant for many more reasons than the loss of a fishing spot, but it should also get us thinking about where we’d go if we couldn’t go where we wanted to go. This article does a great job of showing a whole litany of alternatives that can be sought after in one trip. High alpine lakes can get you away from crowds, into unmolested fish, and on the path to adventure. Even if you don’t live out west, this will get your creative juices flowing.
Do you like custom fly rods? Do you like pictures of beards, pipes, and other manly things? This Instagram account, from the Charlottesville, Virginia outfit, will make your wildest dreams come true. “Fly rods and pipes,” you ask, “what would I be getting in terms of quality with that pairing?” Have you ever heard of Zebco? Reels and bombs, that’s what they made. Definitely follow Moonshine and see what they have to offer. There are some cool things presented with great photography.
Yes. I have a Pinterest account. To be honest, I don’t know how to use it. I never get on it, and when I do I just click on stuff more or less at random and wait to see if something cool happens. All that to say, I can appreciate what (I think) the point of the platform happens to be. I’m trying. So, if Pinterest is what floats your boat, give me a follow. And tell your Pin-pals… or whatever you call yourselves.
