Fishing in a Buff…The best Vaughn Cochran Buff design online poll

Most of you probably have heard of Buff Headwear and what a great new fishing product it is. I discovered them myself a few years back at a tournament that I was fishing and thought that here is a really unique product. Then I saw that my friend Pat Ford, the photographer, had supplied the Buff Company with the design. The light bulb went off and a week later I was their newest artist. I have been doing the “Vaughn Cochran Angler Series” artwork for three years now and it couldn’t be more fun. So…..

It’s time again for the new Buff designs for 2010. This year however, I am putting up the designs for you to vote on. I’ll take your results to the decision makers (the deciders) and see what happens. Just view the Buff designs below and then please take a moment to make a comment about which ones you like the best. Give me your top three to five designs. OK, if you have to you can tell me which one is your least favorite.

Buffs are more popular than ever and most anglers are finding that they need several of them to make it through a week of fishing. It is OK to wash them after every fishing day. You can even wash them after every fish. It keeps you cool and refreshed throughout the day. Some anglers have discovered that they have lucky Buffs…I don’t know, I just report the news. They’re also great for keeping the bugs away AND…you can even drink a beer through them.

Fly Fishing World Headquarters……………. The high water mark at the boat ramp of life

A hard working guide
A hard working guide

My name is Vaughn Cochran, artist, fly fisherman, lodge manager and former Florida Keys guide. Welcome to my blog.

Fly Fishing World Headquarters came about because of an old booking company that I owned called Sport Fishing World Headquarters. That was the first booking company in Key West, Florida that booked fishing charters, seriously! Anyway, I had a great business name and even better, I had a great logo. As an artist, I think having a great logo was almost better.

Over the years Sport Fishing World Headquarters faded away, the internet came along and 800 numbers were no big deal….I was so busy guiding that I couldn’t keep up. But the name was lurking around in the back of my mind waiting to reemerge at the right time.

Well, here it is again but with a new name, a new focus and a new purpose. I guess I’ll need a new logo too!

My goal is to make Fly Fishing World Headquarters my launching pad for a ballistic missile of fly fishing thought, targeting anything to do with fly fishing’s abstract qualities, it’s controversies, art and the essence of fly fishing….flies.

Now for a fishing report……just kidding!
