2020 keeps on swinging and punching in ways that none of us can anticipate. This time around it's knocked down two notable fly fishing guides with Andrew Grillos and Dan "Rooster" Leavens after a spring into summer which already meant too much time off from guiding. Andrew Grillos recently suffered a stroke with an uncertain future and Dan Leavens came back from a bout of COVID0-19 only to have a massive heart attack. He's home now recovering from a stent surgery.
For Andrew Grillos, there has been both a GoFundMe setup with a social media push with a series of auctions on Instagram under #FliesForAndrew.
You may have not know either of these guides, maybe you've fished with them, or at least followed them on social media. They need your help if you can spare a few dollars or can big on an auction.
Jordan of JP Ross Fly Rods and I have been trading a few emails what's been going on in the shop but he didn't mention his newly released In the Seam podcast which I found this morning. I've subscribed and have eight episodes to catch up on.
I've started with Episode #1 and have to say that I'm a pushover for 7' five weights so the Wild Card talk is of interest. Small water with large fish make this length and line weight a favorite for the southeast where streams may be covered with canopy or tight tree or shrub lined casting lanes.
