Guys Dig Her, Fish Fear Her
At the risk of destroying the internet with the concentrated powers of the awesomeness of fishbeer.com, here's a shot you don't see every day.
It's not too hard to still find beauty in this world if you're lucky enough to know the right places to look for it. Fly fishing images are like anything else in that regard, some of them are priceless and some of them are worthless. The above image, captured by fellow blogger Matt Dunn over at fishbeer.com, knocked my socks off the first time I saw it and it would be an affront to the art of photography not to share it with fellow bothers and sisters of the Angle. In compositional aspects, it definitely fits in the former category of priceless. The lovely young lady's name is Erika and and was a good enough sport to join Matt on the river one day for some not so serious fly fishing in the Hoosier State. Evidently, she's a wet wading, fish catching mo-chine. The best I can tell, the printing on her "tackle bag" says More fun without plastics. You go girl!

I've had the good fortune to enjoy the fruits of Matt's blogging skills for a couple of years now. It's been fun to watch his talented writing style, sense of humor and camera skills develop, merge and compliment his love for fishing and beer (not necessarily in that order). His humble "aw shucks" attitude is for real and as refreshing as a frosty mug of Poe Paddy Porter after a long day of piscatorial pursuits. The guy knows a thing or two about malt liquor too. When Matt talks about beer, even E.F. Hutton stops to listen.
If you find a lot of "mainstream" fly fishing beer blogs & forums to be soporific yawners , then click on over to fishbeer.com. and we promise you won't be disappointed. WRWT will even offer a double, no triple, your money back guaruntee on this one.
Thanks Matt & Erika.
