Deb, my lovely wife, took me for a long weekend to Fairhope, AL for an early Father's Day gift. I just had to cast a fly in the afternoons. I guess you would call it "Pier Pressure." Deb took the photo displayed below.
For most of us, it wasn’t on expansive waterways or endless oceans where our passion for fly fishing evolved. More likely, we started on a small stream, creek or pond stalking vibrant brookies or bluegills. In honor of this water and the little fish that call it home, we introduce our Finesse Series Half Weight.
The Finesse Series Half Weight is engineered with the same materials and taper that facilitates such accurate and delicate presentations that the TFO Finesse family is known for. At a featherweight 1.2 ounces and 22 inch pack length, this is a little 5 foot rod that is guaranteed to make you smile – to conjure up memories of small fish past … and future. The Half Weight features a cigar-style grip comprised of flor grade cork and is handsomely finished with a burled cork butt. Two adjustable sliding rings enable varying reel placements for finding the perfect balance. Of course it is light on your wallet too at $159.95 and is covered by TFO’s industry leading warranty.
If you are wondering how to find a line, the Half Weight loads and unloads wonderfully within distances of as little as five feet with one or even two weight lines. It works with as little as 15 grains of line and will deliver a full 30′ of 2 weight line too! This makes delicate presentations in tight spaces or heavy cover a pleasure. Paired up with our newest BVK “0″ click pawl reel at $149.95, you’ll have a perfectly balanced outfit. Both are available now and you can find your local TFO dealer at www.templeforkflyrods.com.

Our good friend Roger Emile Stouff has published his 3rd book!
The Great Sadness: Indigenous Angling and the Loss of Home By: Roger Emile Stouff
In 'Native Waters,' Roger Emile Stouff celebrated the world of the Chitimacha, created by Crawfish at the command of the Creator of All Things. But behind the glory and solace of those ancient swamps and the voices of ancestral ghosts there was a growing dread. 'The Great Sadness' takes up after the close of 'Native Waters,' and the world is changing, the face of that expanse of home waters is fading and growing thin. The thin places, he calls them: the margin between this world and the next. After eight thousand years of intimacy, the native waters of his people are going the way of memory. And he is not sure if he can continue to be Chitimacha, ‘people of the many waters,’ without them.
You can purchase Roger's new book along with his others (Native Waters & Chasing Thunderbirds) on Amazon.com.
Jose Wejebe, the host of a popular fishing TV show was killed Friday afternoon when his single-engine plane crashed near an Everglades City airstrip. He was a great fisherman and sportsman and he will be missed greatly.
