I was pretty excited about the release of the new iPhone until i found out it was “kinda water resistant”, now came in black (BORING!), and that they took away the headphone jack.

Then i was bummed.

That was until i opened my email today and read the following (from Howler Bros.)

Howler HQ is moving to another location and we need to clean house before we open our doors! This Thursday, Friday, and Saturday we are offering an assortment of never before worn gear starting at $5 with nothing over $25! Hats, jackets, tees, fleeces, shorts and more! Some classics, some never released items! You won’t know what you will find until you come on down and see for yourself!

This does NOT apply to any online purchases. NO returns NO discounts NO checks!

If you live anywhere near Austin (as mentioned, it’s in person only) and appreciate surfing and flyfishing inspired clothing you are really going to want to be there or this. You can bet that i’ll be one of the first people through the door tomorrow, see you there.



Sometimes fly fishing can get a little to big for its britches, luckily the folks at S.C.O.F do their best to keep us all in check. I HAVE to attend Icast next year (coverage in this issue) ust so i can tag along and enjoy the antics of the SCOF crew. In the mean time i’ll settle for reading their wonderful stories in the new issue #20 that just went live!


One of the most rewarding aspects of this blog is turning people onto possibilities they didn’t even know existed, i.e. “You can flyfish for fish other than trout?”

A close second is turning people on to outstanding resources that provide them with information, entertainment or fuel to keep the stoke alive. A spectacular podcast i recently stumbled onto “Fish on the Brain” via iTunes does all three of these things and does them well!

In a way what they offer feels like a podcast version of this blog, essentially a bunch of fly fishing addicted folks that seem up for anything at any time that love to share what they’ve discovered with you.

The best part? Every conversation feels like you’re hanging out with friends discussing fishing over beers instead of being sold product or being pandered to.

Check them out and see if you don’t agree!

Those local bad asses at Howler Bros. have just unveiled their 2016 spring line up and (unfortunately for my bank account) it’s by far their strongest line up yet. Classics like the Gaucho are back with fresh new embroidery as well as many new styles like the H and B Snapshirt in vintage floral which is one of the best things they’ve come out with yet (and that’s saying a lot as their track record is pretty stellar).

These folks are the real deal and it’s awesome to see them steadily growing (to put it mildly) and bringing style and a unique flair to the fly fishing community.

There’s far to much to share here so be sure to check out for more inspiring items as well as their sweet new video introducing the spring 2016 line.
