Castin' on Top of the World - Fly rods and Fly casting above San Francisco

Castin' on Top of the World

May 26, 2014 1 min read

A couple of great shots taken a while back by Cameron Mortenson from over at the Fiberglass Manifesto - I've been meaning to share them for many weeks, but have just been swamped  - so here they are. (Click to zoom up)

The dashing chap casting the Epic 580 above the San Francisco skyline is George Revel of Lost Coast Outfitters. The shots  originally featured in a Blog post "A morning with George Revel"  by Cameron back in March and we think they are very cool indeed - thanks for sharing Cam'!

The Howlin Wolf and Jack White versions are particularly good btw)
