  • G. Loomis Asquith 7130 Spey Rod Review

    Posted on August 19, 2017 by Ben F

    In our first ever Spey rod review in ages, I thought I would start out with a real winner – and a rod for which there’s little to no information – the 7130-4 Asquith Spey Rod (Yup – it’s got a silly name, but get over it). This rod is awesome. I first fished it with Tom Larimer on the Big Hole when we filmed some Spey casting videos and I was so impressed that I went out and bought it. Fast forward a year and I got to actually get out and fish the rod on our first ever hosted trip to the Kedgwick River in New Brunswick. Unfortunately, I didn’t get to see how the rod performed on a really big Atlantic Salmon, but that’s a story for a different day. → Read More

    Posted on December 13, 2016 by Ben F

Thankfully, for those interested in visiting New England, there's a new fly-fishing book that might interest anglers. Flyfisher’s Guide to New England by Lou Zambello is a complete re-write of the old guide that some of you may have purchased back in the day. → Read More

  • Korkers Sole Review and Buyer's Guide

    Posted on October 3, 2016 by Ben F

    Why would I want to change soles? It's a question that we get all the time when we talk about Korkers boots with our customers. Sure, you get some benefits like having rubber soles to use in your drift boat, but for those of us who aren't floating every other weekend, it seems like it might be kind of a hassle. To be honest, that's how we felt before we got to try them all out. The truth is, the soles allow you to maximize your safety (and therefore your fun) on or off the water. → Read More

  • 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? Read on to find out. → Read More

  • 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

  • Sage X 590-4 Fly Rod Review

    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. Read on to see what this rod’s all about. → Read More
