For some of us this seems like trout bum deja vu. Brian Jill, Chris Owens, Jay Johnson, and Thad Robinson, fishing together in remote locations and making us hate corporate life. Let us know what you think. Link for more info.

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.

Today the mailman brought a package from a brand I have known since the early days of the fly fishing blogger community. I have always liked the simple logo and, even though it's well over a decade old, my reel pure hat is still one that I regularly grab when I fish or just want to look like a fly guy.
Check out their website reelpure.com. Offerings are limited for the moment (bald guys like me can't do visors) but we have it on good authority that there is more to come in the near future.

|Smoke on the water?|
Fisheries biologists from Colorado have discovered high levels of Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) in their state's trout waters. For non fishing guides, THC is the active ingredient in marijuana. Elevated levels of the compound were first noticed during a recent survey on the state's aptly named "Dream Stream". Marijuana or "Mary Jane" as it is also called, is legal in several Western states. It is believed that the contaminant may be the direct result of cannabis using anglers "answering nature's call" during their time on the water.
Anglers who frequent the state's once pristine trout waters have reported an enhanced sense of mellowness and oneness with the river. Although, some have experienced darker feelings, including the sense that "the game warden is literally behind that tree right over there." Effects on trout are largely unknown but fish have been reported lackadaisically hanging out near the tail of pools with bloodshot eyes and voracious appetites.
One local fly shop owner is making the best of this environmental challenge by selling a line of fly patterns (or trout edibles) that take advantage of the situation. "Mark my words, it wont be long before anglers visiting my shop are telling tales of catching massive trout on size 22 Doritos flies." Overall, the impact on fisheries tourism seems to have been a net positive with the shop's new #420onthewater hashtag, already having a large following.

I don't know about you, but I tend to want to carry way too much gear with me when I go fishing. I usually end up carrying as much tackle on my person as possible anytime I am going to be on the water. After all, if you don't have just the right fly on hand when you need it, you might be out of luck.
Over the years I have worn fishing vests, lanyards, chest packs, back packs and, I hesitate to admit, maybe even a fanny pack (which now would be an over the shoulder sling pack). I suppose this is why the modular SimpliFLY chest mount fly fishing pack caught my eye. MSRP $97.99. What do you think about this new product?
