Lamson has revised the Konic reel and we now have them in stock. This is a great reel for the price. I would say this is the best value for your dollar in terms of trout reels. It is a die cast reel instead of machined, which cuts down on the cost. However it is packed with the same drag system as Lamsons high end reels. This reel comes in at $149 for a size 2 which is for 5 and 6wt rods. Come in the shop and check it out, you will not be disappointed.

We are assembling our Saturday fly tying demo schedule for the winter season.  A demo will be held each Saturday, beginning November 17th, 2012 and going through March 30, 2013.  In a few days we will announce the schedule for the remainder of 2012.  The demos are free to the public, usually run from 10 AM to 1 PM, and attending them is a great way to keep up with new materials and techniques as well as review both of these, tried and true.  Each tier to be featured has great experience tying and presenting the patterns they will demonstrate.  Each is also ready and willing to share their knowledge and skills with you.

We have a few new items in the shop.

The Patagonia Sloucher beenie is a deep hat and very warm. We have them in 2 different colors shown below.

 

The other item is from Cliff Fly Boxes. This is the Articulator fly box. This box is great for articulated streamers, Steelhead or Intruder Flies. This box will fit into your waders, so it’s easy to carry and hold all those favorite articulated flies.

We got a great new wool sweater in from Patagonia. The Forage Sweater. When I saw this sweater last winter I knew it would become a favorite for our customers. It looks classy and is highly technical for fishing and can be used for hunting as well. It is just a great all around piece that we are excited to have in the shop.We carry the Forage sweater in Hunter green and Tan.

With Steelhead season just around the corner we have been getting a few new items in the shop for tying Intruders. We now have Senyo’s Intruder wire, this wire is used to attach your hook to intruders and other articulated fly patterns. This wire comes in a variety of colors and we have all of them in stock. We are also stocking the new Diiachi Intruder Hook. This is a less expensive alternative to the Gamakatsu Hooks we have been using up to this point. We carry these hooks in sizes #1-#6.

We have also got a lot of new Simms and Patagonia gear in for the fall and cold weather fishing. We also have some killer deals on items that are being discontinued. Patagonia Waders, Sage Fly rods, Simms shoes and waders. This is a great time to get a great deal on some new gear for the fall.

We are still receiving some great new gear for the colder temperatures ahead. Our whole beanie rack is loaded with all the new hats from Simms and Patagonia and we have some new colors in jackets that we have talked about in earlier posts. One of the coolest things we have now though is the Simms Cold Weather shirt. This shirt looks like any other plaid button up, but is heavily insulated to keep you warm. This will be an awesome shirt for fishing in the fall, but also a good run around shirt to use from now until spring. This really is a great new shirt so be sure to come check it out!

 

On another note, we FINALLY have some dyed grizzly Euro saddles from Whiting. We have thirty six saddles (twelve each of Burnt Orange, Burgundy, and Purple). With the hair extension craze over I would anticipate these to be around for a while. There are a lot of suppressed fly tiers out there though, so if you want some you probably want to come sooner rather then later!

We have a SWEET deal for you guys in the shop right now. We just received ten Redington “Torrent” packages in the shop today and they are awesome. The rod feels and looks just like a rod that costs twice as much. Combine that with the Surge reel and you have a great set up. The package comes with a Redington Torrent Rod (8’6 5Wt, 9′ 5Wt, and a 9′ 6Wt) Redington Surge Reel, and a travel carrying case. The whole package is valued at $365.00, but we are selling them for $249.95! If you are looking to add another rod to your arsenal, or already thinking about holiday season gift ideas, this is it!
