  • Looks better than Vise Grips: For under $10 techy fly fisher Michael Gracie put together a fly-tying vise that features a size 2 X-Acto knife.
  • Further evidence that fly-fishing is the preferred sport of financial gurus: rising Jupiter Growth star Philip Matthews admits “I bore everyone senseless in the office about it.”
  • The Palometa Club, located in Punta Allen (Ascension Bay), Mexico, is giving away a free trip, plus a Sage Xi3 fly rod, Hatch Reel, Get Some Tail trucker hat & buff, and Kaenon sunglasses to the person who catches their 500th permit. They’re already up to 480.
