THIS WEEK at The Mission:

We readDude where’s my hatch?” where Patagonia (and author Steven Sautner), are once again Turing up the volume on our eco-alarms. Winged insect populations are declining rapidly, world wide, and here is why you should care.

No Fly Zones – Patagonia

“The same way steelheaders need to be anti-dam, trout anglers should be pro-bug.”

We learned How to Travel with Flies from Jim of Yellow Dog Flyfishing. Considerations every angler should make before travelling by plane.

We’re stoked to see the Youth Fly Fishing Festival happening on the 29th of October, at the Fresnaye Sports Club. More info at streamandsea.com.

We attempted tying Dagur’s Sweet Home Alabama, an imitation of the famous “A-rig” fly shown by Icelandic guide Dagur Guðmundsson, in a Loon step-by-step video.

We read The Fiberglass Manifesto’s take on the Echo Bad Ass Glass series, which now features a 5-weight ideal for big bass flies.

“It has all the punch you need with a progressive taper, and handles bass bug and other exaggerated head fly lines great.”

We noted the tips and tricks of Trail Running Essentials from Christian Schauf, founder of Unchartered Supply Co., from kicks and hydration, to the ideal first aid kit. Read more here, or watch the video below by Huckberry. This reminded us about Leonard Flemming’s experience at the Bokong Flyathlon from issue 39.
