Fly Products...New Rambler Cap Options from YETI


Get to drinking faster with the Rambler Bottle Chug Cap. It just takes a quick half-twist of the TripleHaul™ Handle to open and then you’re good to go, making it easy to steal a sip without slowing down. Its classic spout allows for speedy gulps, plus it’s shatter-resistant and dishwasher safe, like the rest of the YETI Rambler accessories. And while your friends don’t need to chant “chug” as you drink from the Chug Cap, we certainly don’t think it hurts to add to the experience.


We simplified sipping with the Rambler Bottle Straw Cap. When you need some water (or whatever cold drink suits you), all you have to do is flip it open, take a sip, and close it tight to stay moving. It’s leak-resistant, easy to carry (thanks to the TripleHaul™ Handle), and has a wide straw opening so you get more drink with every sip. Wherever the wild takes you, the YETI Straw Cap for the Rambler Bottles makes it easy to sip without slowing down. 

You can read more about the new series and see what other accessories you can snag for your Ramblers by clicking here. Both of these new caps are only $9.99.

Maryland Weekly Fishing Report - July 11th, 2017

The holiday weekend is but a memory now and I hope your memories are good ones. It was a scorcher in many areas of Maryland and people flocked to the water for relief. It did my heart good to see fishing rods peeking out through mini-van windows or in the back of pickup trucks as folks headed to their waterside destinations. The summer will tend to move along now and before we know it we’ll be starring Labor Day in the face so don’t put off spending time with family and friends fishing.

The Lower Susquehanna River continues to give up a fair amount of striped bass for those willing to be at the Conowingo Dam pool at sunrise. The power generation releases usually begin before daybreak and continue into the afternoon. Casting heavy swimshads with surf casting gear into the most turbulent parts of the pool has been a great option. Others are having success casting topwater lures in the boulder fields farther down river at sun up.

A few striped bass are being caught around the edges of the flats but most of the action in the upper bay is focused from the Rock Hall area south. Chumming has taken center stage at Swan Point, Love Point and Podickory Point. It has been a good idea to locate suspended fish on a depth finder and anchor up and allow chum and baits to drift into the deeper edges of the channel. As always a good tide is essential. As usual, the chum slicks are being swarmed with two and three year old striped bass that are less than twenty inches in length so it takes some strategy to get to the larger fish that often are 28″ or better. Allowing baits to get to the bottom and in the back of the slick has been the best tactic, and sometimes it takes a squeeze on weight of a half-ounce or so a couple of feet in front of the bait. Surface water temperatures are now around 82 degrees so the larger fish will like to stay deep and mornings will usually offer better fishing results. Channel catfish can be part of the mix when fishing baits on the bottom.
