Fly Fishing Quote of the week : South Carolina Flatlander Edition

From a column in " The Island Packet" by Collins Doughtie, comes our fly fishing quote of the week.

"Talk about trout, I absolutely crushed them and the locals just couldn’t figure out how I was doing it. Some secrets are worth keeping, and other than a disabled woman and Ukrainian man I befriended, those secrets are still mine."

Looks like the townies got no love on this trip. :-)  Read the rest of his column here (Link)

Gear: Kershaw Scallion with SpeedSafe Opening

I picked up a Kershaw Scallion pocket knife about ten years ago and it has been an regular part of my EDC ever since.  The knife is slim enough for carry in a jean or even dress pant pocket either via the clip or incognito.  The edge has held up well and the assisted opening makes for quick deployment.  At $34 the knife's price won't break the bank and is not reflective of the quality you are getting.  Here's an amazon link should you want to have a look and maybe add one to your collection.   I especially liked this one in olive drab and purchased it for my Dad, on the recent Father's day.

PS.  The link is an affiliate link so if you were to purchase one we would earn a small commission.

Gear: GhostTech Strike Indicators

Except for the purists who either shun or don't need them, anglers dating back to Izaak Walton have been searching for the perfect bobber strike indicator. Ok I seriously doubt Mr. Walton used an indicator, but you get the idea.  The latest entry into the fray comes from GhostTech and features a three leaf clover design.  What do you think?  Check out their website.
