    Rod and Reel Radio

    Just had the pleasure of meeting Stan Vanderburg during the Fred Hall Show in Longbeach California. Stan and I had a conversation that brought us together and put us both on the same page. Stan and his brother Ken own the insurance company http://www.800bassboat.com and offer the "Best Coverage for Bass Boats on the Market".  We all become mates during the show and as we were directly opposite each other the guys got to see some of the fishing we have available in Australia. Anyway to cut a long story short Stan is a very well respected angler and is involved in many aspects of the industry including a radio fishing show called Rod and Reel Radio. Stan invited me as a quick surprise guest on the show and the guys gave me the opportunity to plug my business to their large audience. I really appreciated that and I would like to let all of our regular readers around the world that you can listen to this show live and via podcast!
    The short interview I did is found here Sunday March 7th 6.00 pm just click the links to download or play.
    The velvet voiced crew consists of "Big Tuna" Bill Ghiselin, John "Hop a Long" Cassidy, Wendy Tochihara and of course  Stan Vanderburg. I've just listened to a couple of podcasts and think it is a good listen, enjoy!

    Winston Rods might make changes

    The Winston Fly Rod Company are looking at possibly outsourcing the production of their low end fly fishing rods. Employees of Winston are urging the company to keep all the range "Made in the USA" and Montana in particular.

    Baja Anglers Update!

    Grant Hartman of Baja Anglers contacted me to let me know he has upgraded his website. Grant has a reports and species section on his website that provide great information for those heading down Cabo way. Fly fisherman should know that Grant and his crew have those waters wired for fly. Our trips to Cabo would be incomplete if not for Grant and Gisel. Grant has lead me to my first fly captures of Rooster fish, Yellowfin Tuna, Sierra Mackeral, Mahi Mahi (below), Jack Crevalle and even a Blue Marlin on fly. You can visit Baja Anglers site by clicking their sponsors banner or just click this link to view BAJA ANGLERS.
