|The Jacksonville Estate was officially purchased last Tuesday. Yay!|
While I haven't been fishing, I've been lining up some fishy things...so here are some posts to look forward to (?) in what I'd like to say upcoming days, but more likely upcoming weeks once the family gets settled in Jacksonville.
1) I ordered some crap from TenkaraBum the other day. Chris Stewart is a good dude, if you haven't visited his site, do yourself a favor. Anyway, going to give the whole eyeless Tenkara fly thing a try. Will probably make a video of the experiment. Also might as well tie up something with that blue yarn he threw in the envelope and go catch me a redfish with it or something.
2) Redington is sending me one of their new 8-weight Vapen rods to test out when I get down to Florida. Now I'm no expert on 8-weights, but I just want to check out the fancy red synthetic grip. Is the grip just a marketing gimmick? Beats me, but you know I won't bullshit you.
3) When I was last in Jacksonville, I stopped by Black Fly Outfitters to see what was what. I'm pretty psyched to take their "Learn to Fly Fish in Northeast Florida" class with Captain Randy Lanier...because to be honest, I'm going to be sooooooooooo lost...
Anyway, that's it for now. Will probably be quiet for another week or so, especially once my internet service is cancelled in Pennsylvania. In the meantime, maybe we'll cross paths on a social network or somewhere easily accessible by smartphone. In any event, talk to you all in a bit...
