A Fly Fishing Blog for Parrot Heads?

Any fly fishing blog that introduces itself by letting you know that it got its name from a story by Jimmy Buffet gets my attention every time. Check out Schmidts Walkabouts.

"Actually “Walkabouts” for me came from Jimmy Buffets book “Tales of Margarita Ville.” Tully Mars and his Walkabouts played a major role in those writings as a wandering soul escaping from the absurdity of the Pink Poodle Ranch Later. Later I learned of the Australian origins of the term Walkabout. Since then I've always felt that Walkabouts fit nicely into the world of fly fishing."

Can you say "Salt, Salt, Salt"?
