WHAT’S IN YOUR POCKETS?

There is a website I love to visit, Everyday-carry, part because of voyeurism, part for curiosity. Their lay out is great, sober and esthetic. It’s a webpage that some might not find very usfefull but I find a lot of inspiration by scrolling its pages. Do like us and check what’s in the others people pockets and bags, what everyone is carrying daily. Should we do the same on Le Mouching and post what flyfishermen have with them all the time?

FILSON: DRY BAGS

If gold diggers hikking to the Klondike would have had those Filson bags, it would have made their live easyer. But it’s never too late! You can have yours eased by that new edition of waterproof bags! You’ll keep your stuff dry, well the first one, the Dry Messenger Bag is not 100% waterproof as the others are, the Dry Back Pack will help you to hike under severe weather. The  Duffle bags , coming in 3 different sizes will keep your gear dry in the back of your truck or in the canoe or on the tarmac.

THIS IS FLY #47

It was worth waiting one month! It’s like if being delayed was their trademark, letting us imagine the worst. We all know how press, wether it’s web or print, is fragile and always depending on advertising! For the 1rst of July we can open the June issue! We love it! It’s like going fishing, we don’t really know whether or when the fish is going to bite! But look at that issue! Filled with dreams we never thought of, always surprising us, always taking fly fishing further than we thought! Reading This Is Fly is always a master class of graphic design and lay out, do you really realize you are getting THE BEST for free? How lucky are we? Standards are changing everyday in the fly fishing world and the new standards are often set by those guys. Enjoy, and send them an email to show your gratitude! shout@thisisfly.com

THE RIGHT RIO BONEFISH LINE!

While at EFFTEX we had the luck to meet Simon Gawesworth “Mister Line” from Rio, we talked about density, stretching, colours and new lines to come, we could have stayed hours… If you’ve never fished the tropics and this opportunity comes up, sometimes you’re totally lost facing an ocean… of gear!!! To help us fishermen, Rio made this excellent video introducing their products so we can understand which ones fit which conditions for bonefish. Follow Simon Gawesworth, the wizard, make your choice!

FRENCH BLADE

“The Furturiste” from Douris Chastel, the famouse blade maker from Thiers (Thiers is to knives what Bordeaux is to wine). A knife that is so beautiful, you want ot use it all the time, you want to pull it out of your pocket to spread “paté” on your bread, you want to use it to cut “saucisson”, you want to use it to slice th bread, open a cork, pick mushroom… evrything! It’s strong, thick and at the same time it looks slim, it holds well in your hand, made of cow horn or wood, the body is beautiful. Our choice goes to the one made in grey horn, so elegant. But you’ll only find it at Berthier, we chose the 3 piece one but you can pick the 2 piece one (blade and corkscrew). I know father’s day was last week, but I’m sure you’ll find a way to get that knife or offer it to somebody!
