Miss the XP?

Sage xp 

Love them or not, Cabelas just sent us this press release:

A legend returns

Sage XP fly rods are back - only at Cabela’s

In an exclusive partnership with Sage, Cabela’s is bringing back one of the most popular rod series ever made, the Sage XP, for a limited production run. The XP’s dynamic fast action and superior performance characteristics made it an instant classic with anglers. These models are not previously used or factory overstocks. Each Cabela’s-exclusive Sage XP rod is brand new, straight from Sage’s rod factory on Bainbridge Island, Wash. If you were one of the many anglers who wished they’d bought or added another of these fine fly rods to your collection before sage quit making them, this is your opportunity to own one.

Versatile Graphite IIIe construction produces the exceptional responsiveness you’ll need to make delicate presentations regardless of the model you choose. XP rods are the right choice whenever precision line control is a must. The 8-weight comes with the original anodized-aluminum reel seat and fighting butt.

Sage XP fly rods are light, powerful and responsive – everything a seasoned fly angler looks for in a premium fast-action rod. These rods load quickly, generate tremendous line speeds for longer casts and make it easy to lift line off the water. Five of the most popular sizes will be available.

 Available Models:

490-4 (Length: 9’        Weight: 4        Pieces: 4) 

586-4 (Length: 8’6”    Weight: 5        Pieces: 4)

The History of Richardson Chest Fly Box


Thank you for your interest in the Richardson Chest Fly Box. As you may be aware, the concept of a hands free, easily accessible fly box worn on the angler's chest has been around for over 45 years. In 1951, Ronald Fye from central Pennsylvania handcrafted the first chest fly box (known then as The Fye Box) inspired by the Dean of American Flyfishing-George Harvey.

The Heart and Soul of Fly Fishing

n. pron. "blowk" (English); "bloke" (the rest of us). The closest American equivalent is guy, and it is pretty close. A bloke is a joe public, a random punter - any old guy off the street. Where it differs from guy is that it can't apply to your friends. You can't walk up to a group of your mates and say "Hi blokes, what's up?", as they'd all peer at you as if you'd been reading some strange cross-channel dictionary. The most common usage of the word bloke is almost definitely in the phrase "some bloke in the pub".  LINK
