Innovation From A Fellow Blogger

Cam over at The Fiberglass Manifesto has been doing a really great job of highlighting a fellow blogger's new product recently.  I don't want to steal any of his "review thunder," but I thought I'd do my share today to spread the word as well (just in case there's a reader of mine that doesn't already read TFM - like, as if that's possible).

Blogbuddy Jeff at The Freshwater Fly has developed a great little add on to any fly fisherman's arsenal of gear.  I've been a big fan of Jeff's blog for a while (it was featured on Wednesday Nibbles a while back), and I'm glad to see he's found a way to translate his passion for fishing into a product that is extremely useful.

So what is it?  It's a small clip that with a foam patch that's just screaming to hold your flies.  I ordered one last week and it arrived this past Tuesday.  I found it to be very well put together (Made in the USA, BTW) and also comes with a replacement foam patch & sticker.  The best part...only $7.  So how do you lose?
It clips...just about anywhere.

I've embedded Jeff's video below, as well as the link to buy one HERE.

So what are you waiting for?


  1. I love these "why didn't I think of that" products. Looks like a really useful tool. Could even mount to your rod!

  2. genius. now, the decision, do I want it now or later?

  3. Damn! another invention stolen by chinese children...

    Im thinking truck visor... eh?

  4. I'm not a fly fisherman and even I can recognize that's a great idea. Very cool.
