T.F.M. X VEDAVOO Mason Jar Coozies

Scott Hunter and I have been scheming for a few months now on several select items of Vedavoo gear to offer in the T.F.M. Store and the first item we're rolling out is the ever handy Mason Jar Coozie with a Retro Fly or Comrade patch sewn on the front.


The Mason Jar Coozie is perfect for for your favorite cold or hot drink and the "Made In U.S.A." build quality of these is impressive.

These coozies hold a 16 ounce jar and can also be used to hold your favorite bottled brew.


I have the following Retro Fly and Comrade Mason Jar Coozies in stock and ready to ship...

RETRO FLY PATCH
- Woodland Camo
- Red
- Gold
- Forest Green
- Olive Green
- Tan
- Blaze Orange
- Grey

COMRADE PATCH
- Woodland Camo
- Red
- Gold



The Vedavoo Mason Jar Coozies are priced two ways.  If you don't need a jar then they are $20 each or if you do need a jar then it will be $25 to cover the cost of the jar and added shipping.  Pricing for shipment on international orders is not a problem.

Each Mason Jar Coozie comes with a couple T.F.M. and Vedavoo decals.

I can take payment through PayPal, check, or credit card.  

To place an order, please send an email to thefiberglassmanifesto@gmail.com.

As always, thanks for the support and I am looking forward to seeing where these stellar coozies end up.

6 Cool Things To Read

When you start looking around it really is impressive the level of content that is around on the fly fishing internet day in and day out.  Here's the six articles that have hit my radar of what's good over the past week or two.

ALEX LANDEEN - CORN DOGS AND LADDERS
Just when I thought I came back from Pyramid Lake with a few decent images, Alex Landeen comes in with his own take on the lake with both words and photos that are always worth a look.


BADFISH X MR. LOWCOUNTRY JOURNAL
It's always good to see the Flood Tide crew getting recognized outside of the Holy City and Doug Roland of the Lowcountry Journal covers a lot of ground in this interview.


CATCHING SHADOWS - FLYCRAFT STEALTH REVIEW
Rich Strolis of Catching Shadows goes in depth on his review of the FlyCraft Stealth and it's worth a read if you're considering one of these two person rafts.



CHI WULFF X MR. BLUE HALO - READ PART 1 & 2
If you're not reading Chi Wulff every day then you are missing out and you also likely didn't catch the two part interview with Cortney Boice of Blue Halo.  Make sure you read PART 1 and PART 2 of this excellent Q&A.



THE NEW YORK TIMES X JAMES PROSEK
I've long admired the work of James Prosek and this is a well done article and video to enjoy.


THE VENTURING ANGLER X TIM ROMANO
Tim Romano has a lot on his plate from working with Field & Stream, Angling Trade, and whatever book or photography project that he is currently working on and this interview is a good insight to everything that he constantly has going on.


I hope you enjoyed.  Now, get back to work...

TESTIFY

A highlight of my week so far was filmmaker Aaron Peterson sending along an email with a link to this short film which is a visual adaption from John Voelker's timeless prose "Testament of a Fisherman". 



This was filmed in various locations around Marquette, Michigan, including Voelker's Pond, and it's beautifully done. You just might want to watch it a half dozen times before getting back to work.

Several summers ago I had the opportunity to spend a weekend at Voelker's Pond and if you haven't read that post or seen the images taken during the trip please do.

This Week In #glassisnotdead
