The Dude is out!

Paul is out of reach, and he's also busy planning a visit and it's Mrs. Sexyloops' birthday tomorrow, so there are flowers to be bought and food to be prepped, I suppose :-).
The mean season?
Tuesday, 19 June 2018
According to the calendar, summer is right around the corner. I, for one, will be happy to see it come.
There are many from the northern states, those we local folk call “yankees”, who say there are no seasons in Florida. Their meaning, I guess, is that it never freezes down here, so we never get to see the onslaught of ice, nor its thaw. Other more intelligent types, the likes of whom are meteorologist or hydrologist, say south Florida has only two seasons: the wet season and the dry. Their opinion is tough to refute as it has a basis in reality on the largest scale, but I think it ignores some very obvious subtleties.

At the moment we are hosting our fly fishing trip to the Glomma in Norway. We are having a hell of a time fly fishing for grayling, Brown trout and pike.
Don’t play with your food
Thursday, 7 June 2018
Tracy and I have finally got round to purchasing summer season tickets at our local carp lake. We wait until the weather has warmed up and the fish have spawned before we venture out, we also very much favour the sort of conditions that puts the conventional carp anglers off – hot and still. It was in such conditions that we fished last Sunday.

Shootong head connections
Saturday, 9 June 2018
I've been thinking about doing an article or maybe even a video series on how to make loops and/or otherwise connect a shooting head to a shooting line. There are several options, not one os better than the other - they all have advantages and drawbacks and not all are siuted for the same lines. Here's a quick overview.
The Five Gallon Bucket
Sunday, 17 June 2018
On many warm summer weekends you can find me out one of my favorite lakes, casting flies for trout. I particularly enjoy the long casts and relaxed pace of cast and retrieve angling with either floating or intermediate lines, searching likely parts of the lake with a damsel or Callibaetis nymph.
In my experience there are really only two things that can ruin the calm that I find in this type of fishing. The first is a grab from a nice trout, but you will never hear me complain about that! The second is a tangled mess of fly line clogging up my stripping guide during a cast.
Fortunately, I’ve found a simple, inexpensive piece of gear that solves this annoying problem while offering some additional benefits. What is this piece of gear?
