Casting Across: Like, Share, <3

I don’t ask much of my readers.

I Bought a Hat, You Get a Free Sticker

All the way back in the winter, I saw a hat that I really liked at The Fly Fishing Show. Okay, I saw lots of hats that I really liked. There are plenty of companies putting out great looking gear for fly fishers, but RepYourWater has been at the forefront of angling style for years. …

Fly Fishing the Driftless: Angler Research

I’d like to think that I’m still relatively young. However, I am of an age where there are certain benchmarks  that separate me from the younger generation. When I was a teenager, and I wanted information on fly fishing tactics or a region, it meant a trip to the library. I’d have to find actual …

Trout Unlimited Costa 5 Rivers & Casting Across

The fun of fly fishing is the seed that grows into the tree of conservation. That was the first thing that Andrew Loffredo, the national coordinator for the Trout Unlimited Costa 5 Rivers program, told me when I asked him to sum up the purpose of the group. In over 80 college campuses across the …

Why I Write About Fly Fishing

I write more than I fish. To be fair, I do write about fishing a lot. Realistically, that isn’t going to lead to enough quality grip-and-grin fish shots to make for a visually dazzling website. Moreover, that isn’t going to lead to hundreds of “likes” on social media. And if I am being honest, sometimes …
