2013's Behind Us, Bring on 2014!

Well, its here. There's no avoiding it, not that I want to, but for most, 2013 was a great year and others are thankful its behind us. Looking forward, personally, I'm super stoked for 2014. I recently took a new job, which will be crazy at first but should give me more freedom to be with family and financially make the trips I've dreamed of, finally materialize.

It's day one of 2014 and there is already a lot to look forward to this year. From our 3rd Annual Carp Week (which will begin in roughly 225 days) to our hosted trip to Beaver Island with the gents at Indigo Guide Service (there are still two more spots), and more. A full calendar of whats in the books for 2014 (so far) is below...

2013 was a great year for us personally, from Luis catching more fish than ever on the fly in places like Florida, Puerto Rico, Belize, Beaver Island, and more to me knocking 5 species off my Fly Fishing Bucket List, to getting my first Steelhead on the fly, signing on with Dizm Eyewear, and even winning the 1st Annual CCA Maryland Red/Trout Tournament's fly division. As for us as a crew, it was even better, having a blast with some great new reviews, adding brand new equipment to our arsenal, and finishing off 2013 with a record-breaking month in December with over 20,000 recorded unique views on the blog alone (does not count our Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram accounts) in just 31 days!

We have quite a few things up our sleeves for this year, including the launch of a new company and possible move over to that new site. More details on that will be rolling out over the next few weeks.

We are always looking forward to whats ahead and whatever we are blessed with. For those of you who have some great fishing spots or we've had the privilege of speaking to/fishing with in the past, please don't be a stranger, that goes for those of you who we haven't had the privilege of fishing with yet. We are always down to try and squeeze new trips into our schedule, if you don't ask, we can't make it happen! For 2014, we're looking forward to spending more time with you guys and getting lines wet with the ones who make this blog happen, you! Shoot us an email at letting us know what you think or have in mind.

The support is ALWAYS appreciated and does not go unnoticed. We look forward to bringing you more giveaways and contests this year with even better gear from our awesome affiliates, sponsors, and friends within the industry!

Thank you all again for everything, hold on, 2014 is going to be a great year!

Boom...The TLTFF Crew
