amazing how much good can come from a little of both.
we sure are a weird bunch…
and while we’re into weird and secrets, what’s your weird fly fishing secret ?
dubstep and dubbing. an obvious mix but this one’s mixed so well, it’s hard to brush one from the other.
from Brian Wise at Fly Fishing the Ozarks, try to blow out your speakers with this dubstep-by-step.
and thanks to Party Ben these two do a pretty good job at it too.
ok, here’s a first for the Cobra. something that apart from being listened to on the way to the water has nothing at all to do with fly fishing: a six+ hour mix of progressive tekno. see, i’m going out to the river today and some unexpected chores have popped up, i’m not about to give up the first part but it also means i won’t have the time to write this most explosive rant i’m preparing on very poor online fly casting instruction.
anyhow, i hope you’ll enjoy this and if you’re into bluegrass i hope you won’t hate me. (rest assured, i’ll probably never do this again* so it’s safe to come back ! :mrgreen:)
* (that of course means i just jinxed myself for eternity so, i guess you can expect more progressive in one form or another somewhere in the future… 😆 )
lethargy will have to wait till later because here’s a souped, dubbed-up, big and nasty Hog Snare streamer by Jon Hanson, crank up !
” Water dissolving and water removing
There is water at the bottom of the ocean
Remove the water, carry the water
Remove the water from the bottom of the ocean
Letting the days go by, let the water hold me down
Letting the days go by, water flowing underground
Into the blue again, after the money’s gone
Once in a lifetime, water flowing underground
Into the blue again, into silent water
Under the rocks and stones, there is water underground
Letting the days go by, into silent water. “
here in the south of France we need to find good ways to keep both our minds and bodies busy during the long-long winters and one of the best ways to accomplish this is the all new Sensorsex Test with Two Sensors.
far from being some cheap gadget, the SsTwTS wonderfully accomplishes several (at least two) functions and does all of them wonderfully !
it keeps your casting arm in prime shape, ready to go on opening day and as a sideline, the sensor thingy transmits information to a computer and gives graphs and such about rod rotation, tracking, speed, translation and who knows what else all in the interest of studying fly casting mechanics and physics but that’s not important because it’s main function is that it fills your house with weird funk-like tunes from some bad ’70′s flick, something we all need on a regular basis but generally speaking, lack.
it’s creator, Tom Reidar Syversen A.K.A. SuperRattus from Norway tells me that it also sends ‘sexy feeling’ waves through the arm that spread throughout the whole body putting the user in a state of prime fly-flicking condition and awareness.
for the moment, and after some less than extensive testing, i haven’t felt these but he affirms that this happens when the wrist is well conditioned. “It’s a long winter, you know… “
soon to be on sale in the upcoming Limp Cobra Boutique, don’t hesitate to give a call to reserve your plug and play SsTwTS today !
for all those thinking Ollie’s just some old left-handed funny looking guy that wears a tweed-covered Pith helmet and ties fantastic flies, think again…
they’re both under water creatures.
this one’s from Sweden
this one’s from San Antonio
let’s all do a mayfly sing-along !
and Ida Red
nothin’ like a cool and collected angler !
as an ADHDer i need to speed up to get loose. stuff like this does the trick…

squonker = squirrel zonker !
thanks to our friends Vangelis & Marzipan we’ve already seen how exciting squirrel fishing can be and here’s the perfect zonker pattern for this new and soon to be fashionable target species.
like they say: ‘squirrels of a feather flock together’ so here’s a few squirrly tunes to increase your tying pleasure. enjoy !
ok, this isn’t so much about fly fishing but it is about love and if you want some more love watch the video below !
first a fish’s
and then some people’s with a groovy soundtrack from our friends at Jazz and Fly Fishing
which do you like best ?

bubbles are always a happy occasion but in a weird way they always remind me of this great, “the ultimate self-pity song” by Bob Wills and his Texas Playboys.
