Saturday and Sunday we were mobbed by customers when the weather

turned better".

This annual event draws a large number of sports enthusiasts every

Back 2 Back South Carolina Shows brought more growth for A.F.F.S.
 in this region for the future...  
A.F.F.S.Show Trailer & Pond @ PALMETTO CLASSIC 2014
We recently exhibited at the PALMETTO SPORTSMEN SHOW in Columbia 
South Carolina.  In addition to the many nice folks attending these events we met 
that stopped by our exhibits for fly casting lessons, fishing tips, guided trip info, kayak 
demo rides or to purchase some of our products. We also met with some 
new service partners fo the fly fishing public. I would like to thank the owner Marshall and
his terrific staff  at MARSHALL'S MARINE in Lake City, S.C. for offering to let us park our Show
trailer at their facility between these Shows. MARSHALL MARINE is getting ready to open a second location closer to the beach in the Charleston area and are looking to expand their existing kayak selections by adding KC KAYAKS to their product lines. We are also looking forward to helping them with their fly fishing products by adding them in to our new "FLY SHOP IN A BOX"retail dealer program. I met with Chris and Carol Norman at their boat building facility in 
Florence, South Carolina.  The CAIMAN boats are a unique well built fiberglass 
line of shallow water skiffs that are usually factory rigged with a foot and hand controlled 
54# MOTORGUIDE electric motor package that moves these beautiful little boats 
along with all the power they need to perform well. Chris has developed a great 
proprietary steering setup for his boats that can also be used on other brands of "micro 
skiffs"We are now developing plans with them to feature the Caiman's in our 
"SIMUL-CAST" Pond programs and to assist them in designing  and testing a fly 
fishing accessory package to add to these boats. A larger CAIMAN 2 person model 
will be modified to include a strengthened transom in a different configuration to 
allow for the use of a small gas powered engine from our outboard sponsor 
TOHATSU to increase the speed and range. The standard MOTORGUIDE power 
can then be rigged for a bow mount application and a short height poling platform 
spotting advantages to this already amazing craft. I am looking forward to working 
with Chris and Carol to help develop and promote the CAIMAN as a great, 
affordable micro skiff for shallow water fishing areas. The CAIMAN is currently available 
in the 1 man 10' length or the 2  seat 13' & 13 SPL models in a large variety of colors. The 
most popular selling colors are the Camo and the White with Black Pebble finish.
Check them out at   http://caimanoutdoors.com/ Then call the factory or myself  for more 
information. We are also pleased to announce that another of our Product Sponsors based 
in South Carolina SUPERSTICK PUSHPOLES has just added a new Push Pin shallow 
water anchor system to their product line that we will be using and offering for sale in the 
future.  During the 2 Shows in S.C. we were approached by some other 
event promoters that liked what we do and we now have an invitation to
bring our "Road Show" to their events in Kentucky and North Carolina. 
I want to thank all of our A.F.F.S.team members that helped us have success with these 
Carolina Shows and to both Show promoters for having us at them and for the 
great Southern hospitality they extended to us during the events that made them 
so pleasurable to attend. We hope to return to them many times in the future.

A.F.F.S. Captains & "Cruise Ship Pros" in the Berry Islands.. Al Zlata, Mike Corblies, Jimmy Darville
A.F.F.S. has expanded it's Bahama operations by Land, Air and Sea..
A.F.F.S. has arrangements with some of the best talent available in the
Bahamas for both experienced anglers and students. On Grand Bahama 
Island we are partnered with Capt. Phil Thomas of the well established 
PHIL & MEL'S BONEFISH GUIDE SERVICE.  Capt. Phil operates his business 
on the East End in McLeans Town, the launching spot for all the East End Lodges. 
Capt. Phil has experienced guides on staff with quality skiffs as well as offshore boats 
available for hire. On GBI we have also partnered with the very well known 
BISHOP'S BONEFISH RESORT located right on the beach in High Rock. 
BISHOP'S has 7 very nice rooms for fishermen and visiting families, A great 
Restaurant and full Bar plus a Tiki bar on the sand. BISHOP'S is now our official 
A.F.F.S. Lodge on the East End where we will be conducting schools and 
seminars for our Group Trip clients and stopping by for a cold beverage on 
our way back to the Ship from  fishing with our "CRUISE & CAST" groups.

On Nassau we are privleged to have none other than the world famous
bonefish guide, Simon Bain on the A.F.F.S. International team. Simon is a
twice Bahamas national casting champion, producer and star of the
Bahamas first television and radio fishing programs and an accomplished
writer. Simon has developed his own unique fly casting methods that any
serious student of our sport should aquaint themselves
with. Simon is well
known for his antics and fun filled delivery about "There's NO bonefish in
Nassau mon"
Just check out U-Tube for that. Simon has a couple of
experienced guides working under his Outfitters license. There are only 4
legal flats guide operations licensed on Nassau and Simon is one of them. 
If you "CRUISE & CAST" or visit Nassau / Paradise Island by air you should
spend some time with Simon and his staff and go bonefish
"catching not fishing" as Simon likes to say..

Last but certainly not least, in the more remote Berry Chain of Islands, the
well respected guide Jimmy Darville is in charge of guiding our clients when
we visit there. Our "CRUISE & CAST" trips with NCL and RCL visit Great and
Little Stirrup Cayes weekly. Jim and his brothers Percy and Joe plus their
staff of guides with spotless flats boats provide excellent fishing trips in the
nearby waters. Jimmy has a new Lodge under construction on nearby Great
Harbour Island that will soon welcome our clients arriving by air or private
boat for both flats and offshore fishing.
