And We're Back...

Hey all! Its been awhile. Both work and family have been a little hectic the last two months and TLTFF dropped off a little bit. I don't want that the be an excuse, I owe all of you an apology for letting that drop off happen. New year, new us, we're excited to bring you new original content from TLTFF with the same great additions and love from/for our affiliates. Between that, collaborations, and a blend of the old TLTFF, we have a great 2018 mapped out.

Stay tuned and enjoy...

Fly Product...Fishpond QuikShot Rod Holder

Via Anglers All:

The closest thing to having a full time rod caddie on the water with you. A pack of GT’s at 2 o’clock 120’ out and they are coming in hot! Get that bonefish rod out of your hand and grab the 12wt that is neatly tucked onto the side of your pack. With the flip of the FidLock®, the switch has been made and it’s time to strip line, make the shot, and do battle. Having the right tool for the job when you need it is crucial for success. This is why we have designed a clean system that keeps your fully rigged rods fully secured, at the ready, and completely out of your way while fishing. From your favorite trout stream to far-off angling destinations, we have your success in mind.

Loon Live TONIGHT!

Loon Outdoors
This week on Loon Live we're fortunate to be joined by guide, speaker, tyer, father, fly designer, musician, teacher and northern California legend Hogan Brown.   Hogan will be answering your questions about chasing fish on the west coast, especially on his home waters of the Yuba River.  We've found that Hogan's bugs work anywhere that trout eat, so we'd highly recommend taking advantage of his time on Loon Live!

We hope to we see you on Thursday at 6pm PST!

A Message from Lefty

The man I have called my role model and mentor, and more importantly friend for over a decade now is more self aware that I think I am now. Lefty has recently put out a statement that we shared on the TLTFF Facebook Page regarding the 2017-18 show season and how his health is of the utmost focus to him right now. If you missed, check below via the TFO family.

To my friends, 
I was 92 in January and had a carotid artery operation. During testing the hospital determined my heart was only pumping 35% and must limit my physical activities followed by a rest. The industry was extremely helpful and last season was able to attend the shows, clinics, etc.
Several weeks ago, I realized I was developing another problem, which is normal for someone nearly 93. It turns out I have congested heart failure. My pacemaker revealed there was a series of very rapid hear beats, which could cause a stroke. Fortunately a lot of doctor/friends are fly-fisherman and worked with me. In summary I have to give up travel and presentations as in the past.
Everyone produces a certain amount of fluid in the body and excretes the excess. Because of the low heartbeat my body is not getting rid of all the fluids and I gained weight. My best friend Dr. Mark Lamos put me in the hospital and with back procedure they twice removed a liter and a half of fluid from my chest. After five days in the hospital. I lost weight.
A week or so later I starting gaining weight again so it was back in the hospital for the same treatment. They reduced most of the fluid and returned home. I determined I was not going to continue back to the hospital. Mark decided to use medicine to control the excess fluid. It’s been a fine-tuning situation but looks like it’s starting work.
This means the schedule I lived for decades is no longer valid and will spend most my time at home. As we get older we learn to adjust to what we can and cannot do. I have a number of interesting computer home projects on the computer and busier than a Syrian bricklayer. I’m not frustrated and I’m content My problem is I don’t have a lot of stamina and have to work around that. If Marks medical system works I should be busy and around for a year or two.
I would like to be able to send this email to my friends but I don’t really know how to do this. So I’m asking others to help me spread the word through email. Because my lack of energy and stamina I having trouble answering emails (there are more than 400 on the computer) and not talking much on the phone. This is not meant to be unfriendly is learning to adjuster my situation. 
In summary I’m busy and content but I want you to know I am so appreciative you’ve have shared your lives with me. 
All The Best Friends,
