Imagine the surprise of receiving this picture via text without any prior knowledge that the person was going to be getting this tattoo. Then imagine that person being your 50 year old father! I laughed so hard I cried. My face hurt from the explosion of laughter that followed seeing this picture.
Granted my dad does have other tattoos ranging from band insignias to our family crest, but this was completely out of left field. Even for my dad!
He calls it the “Shout”. It’s a Shark Trout.
After his trip to Florida and his experience beach fishing for shark there, he decided he needed to do something to remember this great trip and his love for fishing. So he created the Shout.
Now, when we go out into the lakes, rivers and streams to fish, we joke about finding another hybrid fish idea for him. I think he’s got room for a few more.

The fly-tying-materials-in-your-hair-craze came front and center here today. These very nice girls came by looking for hackles, flashabou and fur to integrate into their hair. Much like a Tiger Muskie, they seemed to be attracted to the brighter, flashier colors.
We called all of our fly tying supplies and got promptly laughed at when we told them we were looking for long saddle hackles.
We advised the ladies to be careful if they went near any saltwater flats or the lakes with long fish.
When we said we wanted more women to get into fly fishing…this is not necessarily what we meant.
Let us know what you think…
