North Texas fly angler Glenn Bautista has come up with a novel way to fish his area ponds. He has outfitted an Orvis Practicaster practice rod (not normally used for fishing) with a reel and line. This gives me all sorts of ideas.

Recently I had the good fortune to be in Nashville, Tennessee and of course, I found myself sneaking into an excellent local fly shop. Fly South is tucked away just off Broadway near Vanderbilt University.
|As an added perk, Fly South just happens to be across the street from the legendary Hattie B's Hot Chicken.|
Fly South is the favorite haunt of FlyFishMagazine.com's occasional correspondent and our fishing buddy, Jay Moore. As soon as we walked through the door we could tell why he liked it.
|The requisite long shot down the fly bin. Huge selection and all species covered|
|They kept the "meat" in jars|
|Appealing to the PBR set. I may or may not have purchased this shirt.|
If you tie flies this shop should be on top of your list. The materials department was massive.
|Mr. Whiting's Mutant Hackle Beast|
|Dubbing upon Dubbing|
|Note the tying area in the foreground. These folks are fly tyers.|
I visited close to closing time and the staff was attentive. They asked me several times if they could help me find something and seemed to take my answer of, "No, I just like to look around fly shops." with a puzzled nod and left me alone. Towards the end of my visit, they seemed to be getting a bit curious about the guy roaming the shop snapping photos, so I purchased a Fly South tee shirt and headed for the door. On my way out I couldn't help but wonder if they had any job openings at this great example of a full-service fly shop.
Keep an eye out for more Undercover Fly Shop visits in the future. You never know when FlyfishMagazine.com might show up and wander your local purveyor of fly fishing goodness's aisles.

#FridayMotivation Rewrite a favorite fishing book or movie as a #clickbait headline. I'll start, but you can do better. "Minister's son dragged down local river by monster trout". pic.twitter.com/bMNOk0TqZl— flyfishmagazine (@flyfishmagazine) December 6, 2019

#WednesdayWisdom "Thank you, dear God, for this good life and forgive us if we do not love it enough. Thank you for the rain.

The Pebble Mine
Selling off our public land
Shrinking stream access
Plastics in our water supply
Opioids in our water supply
Bobbers ..just kidding I fish bobbers all the time.
Pretty much anything in our water supply that aren't fish, bugs, or water.

The phrase "don't at me"
