Got the sew out back from the printers the other day. The logo will be sportin' on some hot lids. The order should be sent out tomorrow, hopefully arriving at the Roughfisher Command Post by week next.
You know you want one.

Mrs. Roughfisher came across a total score this afternoon. At the mercy of Chapter 13, a certain big box retailer was unloading their fly tying inventory at %90 off before slamming the doors for good this week [I won't tell you which one, but you can probably figure out who]. Caught up in a mad frenzy of bargain hunting excitement, Mrs. Roughfisher came home with a bounty worthy of those goddamned Somali pirates. Total cost of that booty before tax? $6.25
11 packs of sparkle yarn. Retails at $0.99/pack. Total cost = $0.66.
28 packages of Micro Tubing. Retails $1.29/pack. Total cost = $2.24.
The biggest score of the day:
20 spools of Rio Fluoroflex tippet. Retails between $12.95 and $14.95 per spool. Total cost = $77.80.
That should last me a week. Cheers!

I'm not much for industry fanfare, but the 2009 Fly Fishing Film Tour is rolling through Portland, ME on June 4th. Coincidently, the exact same time I will be there. The tour stopped in St. Paul earlier this month, but I was unavailable to attend. That's a big deal, since the fly fishing universe typically overlooks all points midwest, especially Minnesota for some reason or another.
I bought my tickets online, and will be joinging the show with Mrs. Roughfisher and the pride of Up' North, Ben Rioux. The Portland stop will be hosted by our boys over at fliesandfins.com. Should be a wicked dirty time.
