Fresh Friday Fodder For Fly Fishers

The 2007 Rocky Mountain Fly Fishing Championships will be going on this weekend on four different venues around Cody, Wyoming. Competitors are trying to qualify for a slot on Fly Fishing Team USA. Our own Southeast Regional qualifier is being planned for mid to late August.
Our chums from Moldy Chum have officially gone fishing. Something we have done far too little of lately. However, this is something we plan to correct this with our pal Paisley this weekend.
Pete from Fishing Jones has pointed us to an excellent UK blog called the Disabled Angler. We couldn't help but be impressed with their Reels on Wheels concept.
The always inspirational Fly Fishing Rabbi answers a question about something of which we often find ourselves guilty, praying for trout to bite. I have often accused my father, who is a minister, of using his unique relationship with the Man upstairs as a means to catch more fish than me.
Finally, the Flyfishin' blog gives us something meaningful to do this Friday morning. CBS News is previewing three stories for its Assignment America segment. One of these is about the excellent Project Healing Waters organization that takes wounded warriors fly fishing as a form of rehab. If enough viewers vote for the PHW story today CBS will cover an event in Long Island and run the story next Friday. Visit the Flyfishin' blog to read about it then cast your vote via this link to help bring this great group some publicity.
