Tippets: Encounter with Tiger Shark, Streamers365.com, Rubber Boots

January 2, 2012 By: Marshall Cutchin

  • Jim Churchly was fly fishing for queenfish in Australia’s Bynoe Harbour last week when a 10-foot tiger shark slammed into to the side of his boat, almost knocking him into the water.
  • Darren MacEachern of the Daily Fly Paper blog just launched Streamers365.com, which will feature a new feather-wing streamer every day for the next year.
  • Gear Junkie highlights a new trend in footwear that may signal a convergence with fly fishing wading shoes: rubber boots.   Neoprene linings, removable soles, and easy-close laces sound familiar?
