SCOF= Southern Culture On the Fly #32, Summer issue!
There you are, cooling down, in the shade, Bossa Clap Hip Hop mixtape by Vinyl Addict is making you swing gently, but your mind is somewhere else, you are longing for that heat to go and you don’t feel the strength to do anything until it’s fishing time! So here’s for you, to entertain you from the deep of your sofa: Southern Culture On the Fly’s Summer issue! And when your reading will be over, you’ll be craving to go fishing! And you should! Because it’ll the right time!
TYLER HACKETT! Drawing, lay out, graphism, comix, fishing, fly fishing, engraving, you put all of those in a mixer and you have Tyler Hackett art! Amazing!
What about tying a Hump Chump? Ok, be warned, this has nothing to do with the clean slick fly tying vidz you find on the web, this is a bit as if it was shot at our office, except that at the office the only place where you tie flies i in the toilets, it’s where no one disturbs you and it also might be the coolest room to shelter from the heat! Get to the vise!
Two lines better than one? We never knwo what’s going to happen. Personaly I like to fish with a lighter line than what people usualy carry. I like bonefish on a #7 (if not on a 6) but when it’s windy or when there are some Permit too, I like to use a #9. Same for Tarpon, if I can I try only use a #10, but I carry a #12 “in case something big shows up or when it’s windy. A perfect article to argue with your frineds (or even with yourself). Now, I oftn use a #11 for Tarpon. But forget about what you read and look at those pictures!
WHat would be summer if we would go for Carp? A lot of people still look down at you when you mention you go Carp fly fishing, let them be, they don’t know what they’re missing! But here it’s not just CArp fihsing, it’s the 3 Rivers Carp Cup! You are surpised right? You know we don’t like competition, but here it’s a little different, it’s a way of life! A bit as if you were french kissing with the Devil, and we love it!
That’s it! You can move out from your sofa, and head to the hamoc! NExt issue is coming soon, in the Fall.
