TrueFlies Clothing comes on board as a proud sponsor of the Furman University Spring Fishing Tournament.

image

Boca Grande, Florida – April 2, 2014 – TrueFlies Clothing, a fishing apparel company based out of Boca Grande, Florida comes on board as a proud sponsor of the Furman University Spring Fishing Tournament.

The Furman University Fish and Fly Club will host this spring leg of its semi-annual Furman Bass Tournament on campus, Saturday, April 12, 2014. The tournament is open to all tackle & will surely be a test of angling skill, as springtime Bass will be bedding in shallow, clear water; they will prove a challenge to catch.

The event is held both semesters, and is organized by the leaders of the Fish and Fly Club. Currently the executive members of the club include president Matt Giordano, vice president Austin Linsky, and treasurer Max Wurthmann. Next year, when the current executive members step down, Abram Edgar, Brighton Ernest, and Brian Cockman will respectively take their positions.

All participants will be rewarded for their efforts and enthusiasm by receiving complementary sunglasses from the Costa Del Mar Company, and other gifts such as hats, shirts, and coolies from the sponsors True Flies, Yeti, Cabl-z, and Free Fly.

TrueFlies is proud to sponsor such a great springtime tradition at Furman.

“Events like this are important, because of the fact that there are no cash awards. As a result, we see anglers showing up to engage in a sport they love, for no reason other than pure enjoyment, and the camaraderie of fishing with good friends. Bragging rights, and fond memories are the real awards in a tournament like this, and I can think of nothing better!” – Capt. Cole Fairbanks, TrueFlies

For more information on TrueFlies, Please call Capt. Cole Fairbanks, V.P. True Flies L.L.C.  (941) 258-1683, visit our website: http://www.trueflies.com, or also on Facebook at facebook.com/TrueFlies.

Safety Harbor Raincoat aka #WearableShelter

How much rain can the new Safety Harbor Raincoat handle? TrueFlies president Mike Lintz puts it to the test as a storm moves onshore. Bone dry and comfortable- that’s all you can ask for during a big storm.

Featuring a multi-layered construction to keep you exceptionally dry and a membrane construction that allows sweat vapor to escape, the coat remains dry and comfortable inside. An integrated brimmed hood features two easy-to-use cinch-cords for better peripheral sight while maintaining seal around the face. Corrosion-resistant YKK zippers with nylon teeth eliminate metal-on-metal oxidation that can occur in most rain jackets. The center front zipper facing overlaps creating a rain gutter and face guard so if water does penetrates the zipper, it will shed down between the facings and not inside of the jacket. Zipped side vents for quick venting to keep your temperature comfortable. To top it all off, a microfiber cloth snaps inside the chest pocket so that you can keep your glasses clean of water and your eyes on the prize.

Some call it a raincoat, we call it #WearableShelter.

Charlotte Harbor Boca Grande Fishing Report 2013

Charlotte Harbor Boca Grande Fishing Report 2013

Capt. Cole’s Report 04/04/2013

The late (even misplaced) “winter weather” we experienced during late March has subsided, and the water temperature is rising!

Snook will once again be on the hunt cruising flat dropoffs and mangrove edges. It’s time once again to throw larger baitfish patterns, and surface flies. In the latter, I like bright colors – Chartreuse, white, maybe even yellow.

Redfish have been a bit spooky as of late. Super clear water, and bright, high sun make it easy for these fish to “mark” you at close distance. Do yourself a favor, and try to hit them with a longer cast (60 to 80 feet); it helps your success rate considerably! It’s that time of year when they will attack baitfish readily, so throw the same baitfish patterns you are using for Snook at them.

Offshore, The Grouper bite has been going crazy (30 feet)! The Mackerel are prowling in large schools as well. These guys can be found by cruising around ½ to ¾ of a mile offshore – Just look for the birds, or the baitfish, when you find it… you’ll know! Closer Minnows, tied a little thicker than usual (so you can catch more than 2 fish on a fly!) work great! Pale, bright colors; chart./wht.  light blue/wht. etc…

Spring has (finally) sprung! Enjoy!!

Capt. Cole | TrueFlies

Buy a great fishing shirt & support Mote Marine Laboratory.


Make sure to get your TrueFlies limited edition “Mote Marine” Bokeelia shirt and do some real good for the Charlotte harbor watershed! TrueFlies donated our Bokeelia fishing shirts to the new Mote Marine Laboratory Field office to commemorate their opening!


The TrueFlies Bokeelia Mote Marine shirts are available at the Mote Marine Laboratory – Boca Grande office, located at Railroad Plaza, 480 E. Railroad Avenue, Boca Grande, Florida. All proceeds from the sale of the TrueFlies Mote Bokeelia to benefit funding an extensive acoustic tagging project for tarpon, enlisting guides and fishermen to capture 50 adult tarpon yearly. Researchers will tag each fish, then record their movements with 100 receivers placed in various habitats around the harbor.


The dedication of Mote Marine Laboratory’s new office in Boca Grande was really more like a “homecoming” of sorts, back to where it all began - Mote was created in 1954 by philanthropist Anne Vanderbilt, whose family owned 36,000 acres of land near Placida on Gaspirilla Bay. She convinced renowned marine researcher Eugenie Clark to move there the following year, and together they created the Cape Haze Marine Laboratory. By 1960, the success of the lab made it clear that a bigger facility was needed. Since then Mote’s main offices have been in Sarasota, Florida.


The dedication’s fanfare included an address from former first lady Laura Bush, as well as former congressman Andy Ireland. After a brief message from the new office’s executive director, Capt. Philip O’Bannon, Eugenie Clark herself performed the ribbon cutting (at 91, she still dives, and works at Mote!). 


Capt. Philip O’Bannon and Mike Crosby worked tirelessly to bring the Mote Marine satellite facility to Boca Grande. Mote Marine’s executive director Kumar Mahadevan said of the new facilities re-directed focus on Charlotte harbor, “It is a presence in Boca Grande, where every waterman’s input is distinguished and important.”


The new lab will be laying plans for an extensive acoustic tagging program for Tarpon, as well as for Snook (genetic tagging and Otolith chemistry will also be used in Snook research).  A study on Red Tide is in the planning stages as well.


For information about purchasing a TrueFlies Limited edition Mote Bokeelia shirt, please contact the Mote Marine – Boca Grande Field Office (941)-855-9251.


All proceeds to benefit Mote Marine Laboratory

Boca Grande, Charlotte Harbor Florida Fishing Report by Captain Cole Fairbanks - 01/01/2013  
This winter has been very cooperative so far, keeping air and sea temperatures very pleasant for both man and fish alike. Red Tide on the other hand, has become quite a nuisance as of late. The small bloom that had been lurking around off shore has been pushed in by days of westerly breezes. While it is still a fairly small bloom, it has severely affected the areas that it has reached.Don’t despair, there is still excellent fishing in the areas not contacted by the bloom, and as previously mentioned, the water is quite warm.  As a result, we are able to fish more “Fall” (and even Spring!) type fishing patterns.The Snook are still enthusiastically smashing top water flies in their usual haunts. The fact that the water temperature has not yet plummeted below their comfort level has kept their metabolic rate fairly high, and they are actively searching for food.The Redfish too are staying on the open grassflats and feeding with reckless abandon. As a result, lots of tailing behavior can be seen when the tides drop out. The “buggy” Crab and Shrimp type flies will be well received when properly placed and retrieved. It is worth mentioning that larger sized flies will be easier for the fish to spot when they are rooting though very dense Turtle Grass.Offshore, the Spanish Mackerel are going crazy! There are still a few Triple Tail lurking around crab buoys, and other structure. And there are quite a few Red Grouper hanging on structure “offshore” (30 miles offshore!). Don’t forget to check near the passes and their adjacent beaches & shoals for large schools of Pompano!It’s a brand new year!! Make a resolution to fish more, and worry less!!       Enjoy!— Capt. Cole

5 Things You Wouldn’t Expect To Find In My Fly Bag: Captain Austin Lowder – Sea and Stream Outfitters / TF Pro StaffHere’s the second installment of  “5 Things You Wouldn’t Expect To See In My Fly Bag”  This time we asked TF Pro Staffer Capt. Austin Lowder, of Sea and Stream Outfitters.Luhr-Jensen hook file: A sharp hook is a must for fish with hard bony plated mouths, hook penetration is the key and honing your barb down will stop your hook point from rolling, and is much healthier for the fish.Scissors: To trim flies where needed or just in case I forget or lose my nippers.Permanent Markers: Sharpie’s rock for changing fly colorsSuper Glue: Fix or secure any flyFloatant: Turn deer hair patterns into high floating gurglers and waking flies to draw the strikes from greater distances *** (a quick side note: you may notice that a few of these products may “re-run” from guide to guide, this is because they were asked to list the often overlooked items they use the most. Rather than thinking of these products as “already listed”, perhaps it would be wiser to recognize the pattern forming here, and think of these “often listed”  products as “something you might want to try”…)

About Captain Austin Lowder
Captain Austin Lowder is an angler’s dream and a giant Snook’s worst nightmare.
He has been guiding clients in both Florida and Montana for over 18 years.  And Austin is on a short list of Florida guides who have graduated with a degree in fisheries management and wildlife biology (from Montana State University).
In 1998, he moved to Boca Grande, Florida to guide his clients to all that the Charlotte Harbor watershed has to offer, and in his words: “offer these guys an unparalleled sight fishing experience!” After 18 years as an active outfitter, Austin still spends late summer in southwest Montana where he guides float and wade fishing trips on the fabled Madison, Gallatin, Jefferson, Yellowstone and Missouri Rivers, as well as the countless freestone and spring creeks that feed these drainages.

The Ultimate Fisherman’s Holiday Gift Guide
 
YETI® TrueFlies Roadie 20 - $219.99
Two great brands come together for this custom TrueFlies YETI cooler.  Unlike ordinary coolers, which are essentially disposable, YETI Coolers are made to last! Broken handles, busted hinges, failed latches, caved-in lids, cracked corners… sound familiar? Not so with YETI.  Better still is the cool TrueFlies logo in Washed Sky across the lid.
 
Puckett Redfish Long-Sleeve – $34.99
Great art invokes an emotional connection with those who view it. At TrueFlies our medium is not oils or clay but cotton. Cotton combed for a soft hand feel and enhanced with ultra soft neck trim, saddle seam shoulders and tagless la- bel. The Spring Tide Tee; the result of tireless dedication to the art of tee shirt perfection. A piece of wearable art designed to elicit the feeling of: “Oh Yeah!” When it came time match worthy graphics to our art, we enlisted Paul Puckett. Angling enthusiast and accomplished artist, Paul has created dynamic imagery of our favorite inshore game fish. Now you can tell people you minored in “Art Appreciation”… they don’t have to know it’s because you bought a tee shirt!
 
TrueFlies Visor - $22.99
When you need maximum face shade combined with the highest-efficiency head-ventilation, this is what you reach for. Pre-washed so it feels familiar and broken-in from the first. Embroidered shrimp logo on the front shows where your loyalties lie.
 
Native Watercraft Mariner 12.5 Propel Kayak - $2,069 Pedal, pole or paddle; it’s the triple-play of kayak fishing. The rugged Propel Pedal Drive can cover a lot of water; stand and pole when you want an elevated view of your quarry. Factory rigged with two Scotty flush rod mounts, one Scotty side rod mount, a Groove mount outfitting plate, anchor trolley system and anchor kit. Performance Promise - Can pedal in reverse - Stable ride sitting or standing - Sit-on-top convenience (easy on/off) - Comfortable support for rear end and lower back - Boat self-bails - Tons of available accessories
LifeProof iPhone Case - $69.99
The LifeProof case’s claim to fame is that it’s the toughest iPhone case you can buy.
 
Indeed, this thing is no 10-pound weakling. The company says that the LifeProof case is waterproof, shockproof, dirtproof, and snowproof, yet it’s slimmer than virtually all the other tough cases out there, with an integrated clear plastic shield that protects your screen (and, obviously, seals your iPhone into the case). Also, according to LifeProof CEO Gary Rayner, the case cost $2 million to develop. 

Hardy Sintrix Fly Rods - $659-749
Most say Hardy SINTRIX fly fishing rods are the best rods Hardy has ever produced. They’re beautifully balanced, lightweight with crisp, clean actions that offer fantastic casting and fish playing characteristics. They’re also incredibly strong thanks to Hardy’s new revolutionary SINTRIX composite rod material, developed by 3M initially for use in the aerospace industry.  

Abel Line Nippers - $50
Abel line nippers are sharp, durable, easy to handle, smartly designed, come with a two-year warranty and Abel will replace the blades if they wear out.  While they’ll also set you back $50, do you really want to be cutting your line with the same clippers you use to cut your toenails?

C&F Design Large Streamer Fly Box - $39.75
Three rows of slits on one side and a clear lid to hold extra large flies. Clear lid allows files to be seen easily.

Membership in Bonefish & Tarpon Trust - $25 - $10,000
The Bonefish & Tarpon Trust (BTT’s) mission is to conserve and enhance global bonefish, tarpon and permit fisheries and their environments through stewardship, research, education and advocacy.  Become a BTT member by donating as little as $25 to this group of concerned scientists, anglers and guides who want to preserve their way of life.

Van Staal Pliers - $219 - $359
Van Staals are designed and built to be the finest - and last - pliers you’ll ever own. Titanium construction means no wear and no rust, yet they’re brutally strong and incredibly light. Replaceable tungsten anvil and cutters produce crisp, clean cuts of any line or wire material, even braided and gel spun lines. The new 5” needle-nose model complements the original 6” plier, and the original 7” size with finger guards remains the ultimate plier for big game and big water. Leather sheath and clip-on coiled lanyard included. Available: 5”, 6”, 7”.
