Tasty-Takes has been neglected as of late. The Eaton Brothers have been split up, both have moved, both are married and one has even changed jobs; as a result posting on Tasty-Takes has fallen by the wayside.
Now we are both settled and Tasty-Takes is BACK! We are also very excited to have added another member to our staff, starting this winter we’ll have weekly blog posts, how-to’s and gear reviews provided by Aimee Eaton. Aimee is a freelance journalist whose work has appeared in Trail Runner, The New York Times and The Fly-Fish Journal. Check out her blog. Lucky for all of us here at Tasty-Takes Aimee has decided to give up writing professionally and has dedicated her life to fishing. (Well not really, but she is excited enough about fishing that she is willing to help us out on a regular basis.)
The flavor of Tasty-Takes is going to change slightly; instead of entertaining daily fishing related posts we will have only a few posts a week and most will be beer reviews, gear reviews, how-to’s, fly tying patterns and videos, fishing tips, possibly an occasional trip report and anything else that we think you might find interesting.
If anyone has suggestions for content, beers to review, or any other ideas that would make Tasty-Takes great please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Have you ever had an amazing wildlife encounter and wished you had a camera? Rick Warren, an aspiring photographer, was able to take the above photo of a Bald Eagle stealing his buddy’s fish. For more on how he was able to pull it off Click Here.
The striper fishing is hot right now and Captain Eliot Jenkins has some video to prove it. Gotta love the double around the 1:39 mark. Check out Eliot’s Blog or his guiding website, Greasy Beaks Flyfishing.
