Glass Power

Cameron Mortenson of The Fiberglass Manifesto fame spotted the trailer to "Thai One On" when it came out a month or two ago. Cameron promplty noticed one specific shot was lacking a little something. The shot? It was a POV shot of my Pelican camera case covered in fly fishing stickers as a I trapsed through my local airport intransit to Thailand. Mortenson the savant that he is,  noticed one decal missing from said Pelican case, a Fiberglass Manifesto sticker. So Cameron promptly contacted me and sent a TFM schwag bag of goodies. So I'm rockin the tee at work today. The decal? Well that's already on the Pelican. Cameron is a confessed "glass geek", ( I thought that was slang for meth head?) Mortenson's website TFM, is a salute to the builders and companies that produce fiberglass fly rods. Over time the Cameron has broadened TFM's horizons to include to reel makers, artists, photographers, writers, fly tiers, gear makers, filmmakers and really anything else that he felt noteworthy within the fly fishing industry. I figure now I can qualify for the TFM Photo Spotting Contest. Too bad I didn't have the shirt in Bangkok, I could have taken pics in all kinds of crazy places with.  Take a look at Cameron's blog, a great read even if like me you believe glass is dead and have vowed to NEVER take up Tenkara ever. So while Ted Kacynski may have had a place in Montana and his own MANIFESTO , he never had his own T-shirt. Eat your heart out there Theodore.  More Later T>
