  • Trip Report: Turneffe Atoll, Belize - Aug/Sept. 2016

    Posted on September 20, 2016 by Josh T

    I recently spent a week fishing Turneffe Atoll, Belize in preparation for a hosted trip I have scheduled in April. I stayed at the Turneffe Flats lodge, which is located on the northeast (Caribbean) side of the atoll, and is situated in perfect location for easy fishing/diving access. “Flats,” as it’s nicknamed, is even stationed right along a home flat which would hold bonefish and at times permit and triggerfish during various times of the day. Most days, either early morning or when I returned to the lodge in the evening, I would see tailing fish feeding no more than 40 feet away. So, right off the bat the location seemed great. I was anxious to see what the rest of Turneffe Flats would show me. → Read More

  • Scott Flex Fly Rod Review

    Posted on September 19, 2016 by Ben F

    In a big year of rod releases, it’s easy to overlook some of the little guys. The Scott Flex is one such release. It’s not that people don’t think the Flex will be a great rod and a huge improvement over the *meh* A4, and it’s not that Scott doesn’t have a ton of fans. But, let’s face it, the $1100 G. Loomis Asquith is just a little more newsworthy. Here’s why you shouldn’t overlook the new Flex. → Read More

  • G. Loomis Asquith 9' 8-weight Fly Rod Review

    Posted on September 1, 2016 by Ben F

    The 2017 model year will likely go down as a great one for the fly rod industry. We were lucky enough to have 3 major rod releases from 3 of our favorite companies. The Asquith (yes, that’s what it’s really called) is Loomis contribution to the pile, and it makes fly rod history by being the first regular production rod to break $1000. Is it worth it?

  • Winston Air Fly Rod Review

    Posted on August 17, 2016 by Ben F

    Rarely do new rods surprise me. Being in the industry means that I usually get a heads up for what’s coming next. I got no such heads up from Winston. Needless to say I was pleasantly surprised when Winston came to iCast ready to make a splash. They have hired 3-4 new team members, have a host of new, top-notch pro staffers, and some really great new products. Leading the charge is the new Winston Air. It’s touted as a “super premium, ultra-lightweight, all around fly rod.” Read on to see if it lives up to the hype. → Read More

    Posted on July 6, 2016 by Ben F

    When Sage changes their flagship rod, it’s a big deal in the fly fishing industry. Sage is one of the largest and most innovative rod makers, so everyone is really excited to see what Jerry is going to come up with next. And then of course there are the haters, like my fishing buddy, who, when I mentioned that I had a new Sage X fly rod said, “Meh, it looks like a dressed up Sage ONE.” I can tell you unequivocally that it’s not another Sage ONE.
