Hey guys, nothing major going on in the shop today. We did get in some new 2013 Fly Fishing calendars with some awesome photography, so next time your in be sure to check those out.


On another note, our photo gallery is looking pretty dated.  I am sure all you guys have been getting into some awesome fish this summer,  but we haven’t received hardly any pictures to throw up on the site. So………….. as an added incentive we are going to have a little contest with the photo gallery! From Sept 7-14 send us your favorite fishing picture from this summer. We will pick a winner and they will receive two dozen flies! To be eligible for the contest, send your picture to [email protected]  and title your message “photo gallery contest entry” be sure to include your name in the message as well. We are all looking forward to seeing some pictures so start sending them!

With the “cooler” temperatures we have been having lately, a lot of guys have been coming in asking about when we are going to put our Steelhead flies out, well we did today! We have all the standby patterns in stock as well as a bunch of new stuff. The new stuff looks awesome, especially the skating dries.

Sticking with the Steelhead theme, we have another new jacket in the store from Simms called the fall run jacket. This will be a great insulator piece or a stand alone peace during nice fall days. Below is what Simms has to say about the new jacket.

“Fall migrations go in several directions. Upstream for giant browns en route to their natal dancing grounds. And virtually any points north, east, south, and west, depending on which direction you travel to intercept banner autumn fishing. Wherever you roam, throw on a Simms’ Fall Run Jacket for lightweight, packable performance in the form of PrimaLoft® One insulation. Jackets feature a winning warmth-to-weight ratio and the water repellency to take on wet conditions the world over.

  • Lightweight, packable PrimaLoft® One insulation to keep you warm even in wet conditions
  • PrimaLoft® One insulation offers the best warmth-to-weight ratio available and has superior water-repellency
  • PrimaLoft® One fibers are highly compressible & soft – like goose down yet maintains insulating properties even when wet
  • Hand warmer pockets and zippered chest pocket
  • Classic diamond quilting pattern with reflective logos
  • Corrosion-resistant YKK® zippers utilize nylon coil and slider”

The Jacket comes in Fury Orange, Khaki, and Dark Gunmetal. We have the Khaki in stock but could easily get any of the other colors in for you.


Come check out all the new gear to get ready for Steelhead Season!

We have some great new clothing in the shop from Simms in time for the Fall season. We will go over new clothing items once every couple of days so be sure to check back with us frequently.

Alright the first new item were going to talk about is the new Bulkley Jacket from Simms. This will be a great jacket for Steelhead season and all other Fall fishing applications. Below is what Simms has to say about the Bulkley,

“As kids we dreamed of Disneyland, “the happiest place on earth.” But since discovering the Bulkley, we’ve found a new source for supernatural smiles. Simms’ Bulkley jacket combines a GORE-TEX® 2-layer shell, with the innovative all-weather insulation of PrimaLoft® One technology. River-inspired features include corrosion-fighting Nylon YKK® zippers and sliders, super-sized chest and fleece lined hand-warmer pockets, and the water-resistant convenience of easy-cinch cuffs.”


Come check this jacket out, we have a size run in the shop and would love to show you the new jacket.

Two things today guys. First off, we have the new drake in the shop! As you all know, they go really quick, so come get yours before we are out.


Second is a new fly box we are carrying in the shop from Anglers Image they call their “slim boxes”.  These are great new boxes that will enable you to carry a bunch of flies while adding minimal bulk to your vest/pack/pocket. The boxes are only 1/2″ thick and have various styles of slit foam to hold everything from small/medium size streamers to tiny midge patterns. They are also clear allowing you to see everything in your box without opening it up. Come on into the shop and check out these awesome all-around boxes!

Sage is always at the top of the list when it comes to fly rod innovation and the new CIRCA rod we just received today is no exception. The new CIRCA is designed as a slow action rod for people who really like to feel the rod they are fishing. Although not for every situation, this rod will be an incredible dry fly rod and one worth adding to your collection. We have two CIRCA rods in the shop, an 8’9 3wt and a 8’9 4wt. We would love to show you all these rods and even take them out to cast. Come by the shop and check them out.



CIRCA rods are a technologically advanced collection of slow action rods that will appeal to the angler with a slower, more deliberate casting tempo, while realising a fast recovery, accuracy and overall high performance.

Using Konnetic ™ technology, the CIRCA collection has more carbon fibres packed into a smaller diameter blank, resulting in a radically narrow taper throughout the length of the rod. This results in a consistently slow, yet responsive action from butt to tip.

The casts are methodically smooth and graceful, yet crisp and purposeful. Sensitivity gives the angler precision for the control needed for delicate presentations and is said to be the ideal rod for ‘matching the hatch’ style fisheries and conditions.

CIRCA features include:

  • Green Tea shaft with Olive Slate colour trim wraps
  • Vera wood insert with black aluminium reel seat and winding check
  • Custom Sage snub nose half-wells grip
  • Black rod bag with iridescent Black Hills Gold silkscreen
  • Desert Gold coloured tube with black caps.

The collection will be available in six different four-piece models.

  • 7’9″ 2 weight
  • 7’9″ 3 weight
  • 8’9″ 3 weight
  • 7’9″ 4 weight
  • 8’9″ 4 weight
  • 8’9″ 5 weight

Steelhead maniacs rejoice, we now have the third Skagit Master DVD in the shop. Just like the previous two films in the series, this one promises to be another good one. The great thing about the Skagit Master series is the different topics that are covered in each DVD. Skagit Master 3 focuses on fly design for steelhead. This is not your ordinary tying film though, they examine flies under various light and dark conditions and even use a flow tank to demonstrate the flies action in water. I have seen this video a few times now and there really is some awesome, informative material on it. Come check it out!
