We got a new shipment of Buffs in with 2 new colors of Buff gloves. If any of you have Saltwater trips planned both of these items are a must for sun protection. Many people have the buff for their face but neglect to think about their hands. The Buff gloves are really comfortable and provide great protection from the sun. We have many different colors and designs.

Spirit River is becoming really innovative in developing materials for steelhead patterns. We just keep getting hooked and more of their UV2 Material. We just got in the UV2 Intruder Spey Hackle packs. They also have a Hackle starter kit. A must for any of you tying Intruders, large steelhead/salmon patterns and don’t forget adding a little to your favorite streamer pattern!

Hey guys couple things going on this week in the shop. First off, tomorrow (Saturday the 16th) we have Greg Schoby in doing a  free tying demo in the morning from 10a.m. to 1p.m. Greg is a fisheries biologist for the Fish and Game and will have some great patterns and  stories to share with you all so be sure to come check it out!

Second, we are now a HATCH reels dealer! In the shop we have a 5 plus, 7plus, and 9plus reel. The 5plus handles line weights from 5-7, the 7plus handles lines 7-9, and the 9plus can hold 9-12wt lines . If there is a size or finish you want from Hatch that we don’t have in the shop we can certainly get it in for you.  I have personally used these reels quite a bit over the last few months and I am very impressed. They have handled everything from trout to sharks for me and have performed flawlessly. I would highly recommend these reels to anybody wanting a bombproof high performing reel. Head on over to their website ( and check out the different sizes/finishes and be sure to read about the drag system, pretty cool stuff!

We got a few new items I wanted to highlight today.

The Clic glasses are a new item for us. These readers come in variety of colors and strengths. From what I have been told if your over 40 you need a pair of readers.

Ice Dub Shimmer from Hareline is a new material that reminds me of sparkle organza but it has much more flash. My first thought was wingcases on nymphs and using it to add flash to collars of streamers or nymphs. It’s available in 5 different colors and we now have them in stock.

We got a few more fly tying materials/tools in that I want to share with you all.

Jungle Cock has been somewhat hard for us to get our hands on the last few years. We now have a good supply of loose feathers from Spirit River and we are more than happy to special order a full cape for you.







The Light Saber which is a UV curing light from Spirit River is rugged and seems to be a much higher quality that what we have been seen or sold in the past. Its also under $10, which is crazy because the Clear Goo curing light from Hareline is $60.

Looking for something specific? We always do special orders on material we can get. Also we are very close on getting Krelix flash for tying the Krelix minnow. More to come on that topic later.

I wanted to give you all a heads up on a few new items we have got in the shop.

Bug Bond UV Cure Resin. We have this in the Original clear and the Original Lite formula. This glue requires a UV Lamp to cure the glue when used while tying flies.

Another tying item we now have is the Spirit River UV2 Super Schlappen. We have all the colors for steelhead flies. The feathers are dyed through a process called Ultravision. This is a process that enhances the material by adding visibility and natural color spectrum.

The last item is the book Sunlit Riffles and Shadowed Runs by Kent Cowgill. This book is a collection of stories based in the United States about fly fishing. You can guarantee that there will be some funny and inspirational tales within the pages of this book.

I was fortunate enough to do a little saltwater fishing over the Christmas break down in California and had a blast. My family goes down to California quite a bit and My favorite thing to do is fly fish for sharks out of San Diego. In the summer months you are fishing for Mako and Blue Sharks. The Makos are nuts, they can easily get 10-15′ out of the water on their jumps. My First trip was in September 2010 when we hooked, leadered, and released a monster Mako  around 12 feet long and around 1,000lbs on a sage Xi3 16wt. Check out the video link below, make sure you watch the whole thing!


Needless to say after that trip I was obsessed and I try to get after them a few times each year. Our most recent trip was on 12/21/12 and yes I did plan to be shark fishing when the Mayans said the world would end! In the winter you are targeting Blue Sharks as the Makos leave looking for warmer water. We had a great trip, it took a while before any sharks showed up in the slick, but once they did we were mugged. There were times when we had 4 sharks around the boat at the same time looking for something to munch on. I took a bunch of video of the day that you can watch by copying and pasting the link below.



I had a blast and I will be down there again for sure this summer!
