Meet the Ashers

 Though I would take back old school today and tie a classic that still holds a few slots in many
fly fishers midge boxes. The Orange and Lime Asher, a couple a solid sleepers you should have tucked 
in you special hiding spot for those picky fish. 
Crazy what colors some fish can simply not leave alone, for me it seem that purple and lime are two of 
those colors.

Special Gift

 Being a Hatch Finnatic, I received a special gift yesterday, the special edition "Turneffe Atoll Trust" reel, The 7 Plus, in the super cool aqua blue color. In reading the literature, only 100 will be produced, so this will be pretty cool to fish and have.  More info below, if you too would like to have one.
