Sexyloops Snapcast!
December 2008 edition

We weren't pulling your leg when we said Snapcast was irregular. Welcome to the Early Christmas Special Edition. I'll keep this short because I'm writing this under the hood of my truck, connected to the battery, and it's raining. I think I may be right in saying that no other flyfishing publication comes to you from underneath the hood of my truck, which is just as well because there's not a lot of room under here, what with all the flytying materials and sheep.

Thanks Jo for producing a kick-ass layout. If your layout doesn't look kick-ass then we recommend subscribing to the HTML version and not the text version. It's easier to read and the pictures are quite pretty.

Cheers, Paul

PS Happy Easter
