Epic Giveaway_Square

Awwwwww yeah! Howler Bros. is running an incredible contest aptly titled the “Epic Giveaway” where you can enter for your chance to win an 8WT Epic fiberglass custom rod, a Topo/Howler Klettersack AND a $250 gift card. It couldn’t be easier either, just plug in your name and email address at for your chance to win. One lucky person will be announced November 20th.

Good luck everyone!


As many of you probably know (and maybe even applied for) Howler Bros. recently took applications for their new Howler Bros. Privateers program which will see two lucky folks driving this murdered out RAM 2500 cruising from retail show to hidden waters and more with the singular goal of spreading the Howler Bros. love.

I was fortunate enough to be invited to a happy hour the other night here in Austin at the Mean Eyed Cat for the christening of the  fresh ride and the chance to meet the winning duo of Drew Ruff and David Mucklow from Colorado and all i can say is that the future of turning folks on to Howler Bros. is in good hands.


It’s no secret that (seemingly) opposing opposites make for a great story and it’s a sure bet that the combination of the two friends from Colorado will only add to the legend. Drew is the one half that sports the clean cut look while David enjoys the long hair, trucker hats, and rock and roll t-shirt, the classic odd couples. Not that this should be mistaken for their stereotypical personalities mind you, but it does make two longtime friends instantly recognizable, especially if you see them bouncing out of a thugged out van racing each other to fishy waters.

If you do run into these cats out there in the wild, be sure to to turn them onto some fish. Who knows, in return they might allow you to carve some doughnuts in the Howlermobile or at least toss some Howler schwag your way.

Bon voyage guys!



Here’s your chance to win the great new DVD “The Tributaries Series” from the legendary RC Cone containing his works “Breathe”, “Tributaries” and “Yow: Icelandic for Yes!”. This is a great collection from R.C. Cone featuring great stories, intense action and above all us, incredible camera work. If you’ve ever attended a Fly Fishing Film Tour you’ve doubtlessly seen his work, but now you have the chance to own it for yourself.

As any long time reader knows, one of the main reasons this blog was started was to turn people on to the fact that fly fishing possibilities were all around them, especially here in the heart of Austin. While we’ve doubtlessly reached some folks here and there through the blog, i’m confident that more Austinites than ever will get that message when they pick up the latest copy of Tribeza or check them out online at and read the write up of die Fische and all of the fishing possibilities that they have at their doorstep.

It’s quite an honor to be able to get this message out via such a prestigious Austin magazine. Special thanks to Daniel Cavazos, a long time die Fische reader and fishing friend for making this happen and helping us spread the wonders of urban angling.

P.S. Don’t worry, i’m not taking up modeling…egads!
