We have a lot of things going on right now at the shop. In fact we have gotten so busy trying to keep tying materials stocked up, working getting ready for the upcoming season, we have neglected to post some information for you.

We have some fun fly tying classes coming up in march. There will be a tube fly class taught by one of our sales reps Lawrence Stuemke. He will be teaching the class on Friday evening March 5th than will be doing a tying demo the next morning. This course is $50 and you will need to provide a tube fly vise, or a tube fly attachment. We have more information on our classes page that you can access by clicking here

We also received some new dubbing in the shop this last week. We now have a great selection of Scud Dubbing. This dubbing is a synthetic material for tying scud patterns. It will work well for other nymph patterns as well. Scud dubbing was brought into the shop by the request of Kelley Glissmeyer. Many of you were here for Kelley’s tying demo where is demonstrated how to use this great stuff!

Pott flies, especially the sandy mite, are going through a popularity rebirth around the Rocky Mountain west.  In response to your requests for materials to tie the venerable sandy mite, we now offer packaged light brown (tan) horse mane,  traditionally used to weave their bodies.  We also have orange floss in two and four ply types, the other material needed to weave these classic  Montana patterns.   We recommend hooks such as,  Daiichi 1560, Dai-Riki 075, Mustad 3906, and TMC 3761 for sandy mites.  Don’t forget the 6/0 black thread!
