Tuesday TIp - "Dry Dropper Rig" - May 31st, 2011

This week tips once again features r.b. wright outdoors ProStaff member Gordon Vanderpool. Gordon discusses the "Dry Dropper Rig" that he fishes quite often this time of year.  While fishing with Gordon, we saw a tremendous amount of activity on the water surface -- several trout "sipping" flies as they drifted over.  However, the bite was slacking off and Gordon noted that although it appears that the fish are feeding on the surface, this is actually only accounting for about 20% of the activity.  To prove his point, Gordon switches to the "Dry Dropper Rig" and immediately began catching trout again.  As we have said in the past - this is a sport of adaptability and Gordon understands this better than anyone I know.

I hope that you enjoyed this segment and you found it beneficial. We appreciate your follow, your support, and your comments.  If you have questions about today's tip or if there is a subject you would like to us cover -- e-mail me at rb@rbwrightoutdoors.com or leave a comment below. 

Thanks again for your follow and I look forward to talking with you soon.

Tuesday Tip - May 24th, 2011 - "Fishing the jig"

Wow!  There is a lot going on here at r.b. wright outdoors.  I am thankful for your support and for your follows. 

In today's segment I took a few extra minutes to introduce you to our ProStaff team. I understand that in our format a ProStaff member is more than a personality that you sit around and watch hunt or fish.  It is someone that can help you become a better sportsman.  At this point I have brought on three ProStaff members:

                                                   1) Terry Wright (Inshore)
                                                   2) Gordon Vanderpool (Fly Fishing)
                                                   3) Justin Harrell (Bass Fishing).

 The decisions to bring anyone is very difficult for me.  They must not only excel in their sport but they must be proficient in instruction and understand the vision of r.b. wright outdoors.  I fully believe you will enjoy getting to know these men as well as learn from each of them.

Today's tip actually focuses on Largemouth Bass and features for the first time Justin Harrell.  Justin discusses "jig fishing" and takes you step by step through the proper modification, the equipment, and then puts his knowledge to the test with great results.

It is my hope that you enjoyed this segment, you learn from this segment, and that you are able to apply this tip to your everyday application.

If you have a tip that you would like to see featured on our Tuesday's Tip -- e-mail me at rb@rbwrightoutdoors.com - I would love to hear from you.

Thanks for your follow and I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Our newest series..."The Frugal Outdoorsman" - Ground Blinds

As r.b. wright outdoors continues to grow, we are introducing new segments to our line up. Today I am very proud to introduce the first segment of “The Frugal Outdoorsman”. In these somewhat difficult economic times, many outdoorsmen are looking for ways that they can still enjoy the outdoors without busting their budget. This series will feature tips by outdoorsmen from across the country. I must admit that it has been “pretty cool” seeing these tips first hand.

This first segment of “The Frugal Outdoorsman” features someone I consider to be the true definition of “frugal”. Lenox Harrelson has been a friend, hunting/fishing companion, and outdoor mentor of mine for many years. In fact my girls refer to him as “Uncle Lenox”. What really impresses me about Lenox is watching him in the field and the materials he uses to meet his outdoor needs. I assure you that Lenox will be a regular on these segments and you will enjoy getting to know him. When I was first thinking of this series I went and had a conversation with Lenox in his garage. We discussed many of the items he uses in the field and decided to begin with one of my favorites…the ground blind. This segment will show the materials you need and take you step by step on how to build your own “mobile” ground blind for under $20.00. (By the way…using this budget you actually have enough materials for TWO). These blinds are very effective, very affordable, and you get the added bonus of truly doing it yourself.

I hope you enjoyed this segemnt and I look forward to your feedback.

Thank you for your follow.

May 17th Tuesday Tip - "Take your kids fishing"

I spend a lot of time on the road lately hunting and fishing.  I have the privilege of hunting with guides, ProStaff members, and friends. This weekend I took a break from the norm and spent some time fishing with my three daughters.  It made realize that sometimes the best tips are not found in the tackle box or the gun cabinet...sometimes they are found in the smile of a child.  I hope you take this tip to heart and enjoy why my kids think that this is probably the best tip yet.

As always - thank you for your follow and your feedback.  If you have a tip suggestion you would like to see on these segments, please e-mail me at rb@rbwrightoutdoors.com.

Looking forward to the change

Typically at this time, we release a “Tuesday's Tip”. Due to equipment upgrades and changes that we are making there will be no tip this week. However, I would like to take this time to bring you up to speed on what we are doing and what we are really about.  "Tuesday Tip" will return at it's reguarly appointed day next week.

On Wednesday, June 1st, 2011, r.b. wright outdoors will be launching a new website.  This blog will go back to the intended purpose of being a place where I will submit my writings dealing with hunting, fishing, and life.

The website is one that I hope will have information that you – the everyday outdoorsman or woman – find of value for your everyday applications. The pages on the new site include the following:

Tuesday’s Tip – Weekly tips from myself, r.b. wright outdoors’ ProStaff, or people we have come across in our travels. These tips generally deal with hunting and fishing but occasionally deal with life issues.

Product Reviews – Every product we review goes through a five point checklist. This video diary explains what we like about the product and what concerns we may have derived as a result of the test.

• “The Good Stuff” – Admittedly by nature, I am a fairly conservative guy. You will not see me bungee jumping, you will not hear heavy metal blaring as I shoot a deer followed by excessive celebration. Nothing wrong with that by any means, I watch it as well and enjoy it. My personality is not “wired” that way. This is where you will find our hunting and fishing segments. It will feature various members of the r.b. wright outdoors team doing what we love…hunting and fishing. Just without all the hype.

Outdoorsman360 – This is one of the features that I believe sets us apart from the other guys. Yes we want to help you become a better hunter or fisherman but we also want to help you enjoy the outdoors more. I believe that this is achieved through becoming well-rounded…hence Outdoorsman360. The page will deal with three main topics…Health, Finances, and Balance. We have connected with doctors, nutritionist, and trainers who will explain not only the benefits of losing 10 pounds, but also how to lose 10 pounds. Getting in shape can give the edge outdoors. We have also teamed up with Financial Planners and experts to share the knowledge in regards to budgeting and investing. I am certain that we all would agree that when our financial house is in order…we can focus better on what we are doing. The final area is balance. We have reached out to nationally recognized speakers, pastors, and counselors to discuss how to find the “true balance” in your life. It took me many years to grasp onto the understanding that when the three afore mentioned items are where they should be – life is good. When life is good I can really focus on what I am trying to accomplish whether it is hunting, fishing, or running a business. As a side note -- each of these contributors are also hunting and fishing enthusiast - so they know the demands you face.

The Frugal Outdoorsman – this has become one of my favorite segments. We have folks from all over the place sending  ideas on how they save money while in the field. This segment regularly features a longtime friend of mine, Lenox Harrelson. Lenox has spent his entire life building his own blinds, feeders, clothes, and decoys. He has mastered how to hunt and fish effectively with very little money. I look forward to watching this segment grow and hearing ideas from more of you.

r.b.’s video thoughts – Have ever had a thought that you wanted to share with someone and there was nobody around to listen? Happens to me all the time. This is why I keep a small camera mounted in my truck. Many times when I am driving to our next destination, I have thought that I want to share. Sometimes it deals with hunting and fishing. Sometimes it is just a thought. These sometimes funny segments are designed to really make you think about the topic being discussed.

The Challenge – This challenge is open to anyone who desires to lose 10lbs. It is on this page that we post success stories from followers across the country in regards to getting in shape. I had one follower who told me he watched one of our segments and quit smoking. Lifestyle changes are never easy – this page is designed to serve as your accountability partner, cheerleader, and yes even your “success stage”.

Our Sponsors – This page highlights the people who help make r.b. wright outdoors possible. More than that - these guys love the outdoors as much as you and I; they work hard to help conserve the heritage and tradition that we love.  We also only endorse products that we personally use in our applications.  If you are interested in talking about a spronsorship realtionship with r.b. wright outdoors please e-mail me at rb@rbwrightoutdoors.com

Photo Gallery – This is where followers have submitted their photos of hunting and fishing adventures with a story line. This is the hunting/fishing “Bragging Board”. We are currently looking for more pictures and stories to post prior to launch next month – please submit yours to Jennifer@rbwrightoutdoors.com

Who we Support – I believe in sustaining the resource. I believe in conservation. I believe in service to humanity. These are the organizations that are on the front lines in these battles and are organizations we support. I encourage you to do the same.

Guestbook – This is the page where you sign in, leave your thoughts, suggestions, and comments or just say hi.

Contact Us – We want to hear from you – this is the easiest way to get in touch with us.

I look forward to what lies ahead for us. I look forward to hearing from you and you becoming a part of what is happening here. If at anytime you have comments, suggestions, or questions do not hesitate to contact us.

Have a great week and thank you for your follow.

Tuesday Tip - May 3rd, 2011 - "Modified Carolina Rig"

All of us that bass fish have had those days when it seems like no matter what we throw ... the fish will not bite.  When I am having a day like this I have found it is better to slow things down a little and throw a modified version of the Carolina Rig.  It is not a magic pill...but more often than not it produces.

Today's tip explains how I set-up this modified Carolina Rig and why it works for me...I
 hope that you enjoy.

As always, I appreciate your follow and look forward to your feedback.  If you have comments, questions, or a suggestion on a tip you would like to see featured - do not hesitate to leave a comment or e-mail me at rb@rbwrightoutdoors.com.
