We are really excited about a new (to us) rod we now have in the store from Winston. The new rod is Winston’s BIII SX and it replaces the old BII MX. The BIII SX is a super fast, powerful, smooth rod that would be a great big nymph, windy day, steelhead, or streamer rod. I have cast this rod a few times and this thing is a cannon. Be sure to come down and check this rod out as we are approaching streamer and steelhead season.


Here is some additional information from Winston on the BIII SX

This breakthrough new series was designed to truly handle the most demanding and extreme salt and freshwater fishing situations. And while SX stands for “super” fast-action, the unprecedented power and strength of these rods does not come at the expense of smoothness and feel. Whether you are making long casts directly into the wind, throwing big bulky flies or wielding an aggressive sink-tip line in steelhead waters, these rods will come through. They are unlike any other fast action rod made. Boron III-SX rods feature a superlight matte black reel seat with R.L Winston Rod Co. engraved on the barrel. The trout rods are available with the same wood reel seats as our Boron IIIx rods. The 9’6″ 5 and 6-weight models have fighting butts for versatility and battling larger fish. All come with our graphite rod tube.

Simms is always coming out with awesome new products to help us enjoy our time on the water better and the new “Slick Jacket” does just that. The Slick Jacket is designed to be very clean on the front of the jacket so nothing hangs up or catches while you are fishing. The jacket is made of a 3 layer gore tex pro shell and has the hidden cuffs like the classic “guide” jacket. This is an awesome jacket that would be a bulletproof steelhead, saltwater, or rainy day on the South Fork jacket. Come by the shop and check this thing out!

Here is some additional information from simms;

When rainfall powerwashes the Pacific Northwest, find returns of ocean-bright steelhead and seek fortress-like shelter in Simms’ new Slick Jacket. Propelled by GORE-TEX® Pro Shell fabric, with stretch, the Slick flows with your body for superior mobility, while the ultraclean outside-in design delivers snag-free performance from hood to bottom hem. Features include ample storage via large integrated chest pockets for fly boxes and tip-wallets, coupled with internal organization for river mainstays such as sunglasses, tippets, and leaders. Watertight, adjustable cuffs and a dual draw-cord waist keep the dank out, while plush hand warmer pockets with interior pass-thru zips allow you to access waders lying within, without breeching your external bulwark.

We have some exciting news in the shop today, we just received the brand new Sage Method and it is awesome! This rod replaced the popular TCX and is a lighter, deeper loading canon that will be a great addition to your arsenal. We would be happy to take you out to cast the rod or answer any questions you may have regarding the Method, come by and check it out!

Here is some additional information from Sage about the new rod



You didn’t become an expert caster just to say you did. And you didn’t do it overnight, either. You practiced, fished hard, and got better because you wanted to catch more fish, more often. You paid your dues, and you met the fish on their own terms, which meant getting the fly out to places they felt the safest: out of the range of merely average casts. Fast action rods have always been a part of your success, and the new METHOD gives you more of what you love most. Like our fastest line speeds to punch through the wind and to carry the biggest, bulkiest, heaviest flies in your box out to where they can strut their stuff.

This time of year brings crowds of fly-fishers to choice locations on the Henry’s Fork and the South Fork for good reasons.  Emerging caddisflies, damselflies, mayflies, and stoneflies on these rivers bring responses from trout that are hard to match, and we can help with strategies and merchandise.  Certainly these popular locations are worth fishing, but when it is time to get away from the crowds within, we can also help.  See our Articles page to learn what other quality fishing locations abound in this area.  We will be adding to this page throughout the season.  If one of the locations we feature strikes your fancy, get in touch or come into the shop for further details and strategy information.
