We have gotten lots of merchandise in the shop lately. The biggest project we have been working on this week is all the new flies for the season. We are right in the middle of getting this huge project. If your looking for something specific in the next few days just ask cause chances are we have pulled the box and are working on filling it with patterns.
We have received our major spring order in for Simms. We have lots of new shirts in all different patterns and styles. We also have some updated waders for you to check out. The new Simms sportswear is awesome and there are some great new pieces we brought in.If you looking for something that is technical for fishing all day but looks good enough to wear to dinner or the bar at the end of the day, or your looking to sport your favorite fishing brand at work. We have everything to fit all those needs, come check it out!
Hey guys we have a a bunch of new stuff in the shop to tell you about! First we received a big order in from Simms with a bunch of new stuff for the upcoming summer fishing season. New technical fishing shirts, shorts, button up shirts, t shirts, waders, phone covers, you name it we have it. Here is a picture showing some of the new stuff but this is hardly everything we got, so come down to the shop and check some of this new stuff out!
Second is a cool hook from Gamakatsu we are now carrying, the C12 scud hook. Everyone knows the quality of a Gamakatsu hook and traditionally we have carried these hooks for Steelhead fishing/tying and other big fish applications. It will be awesome to incorporate this quality hook into smaller bugs. I have tied a few flies with C12 and it is a very strong, very sharp hook. We carry sizes 10-20 but for some reason they don’t carry an 18, come check them out!
Like I mentioned yesterday I am playing a little game of catch up on getting you all information on the new materials we have gotten into the shop.
If you haven’t noticed we have starting stocking a lot of the Spirit River UV2 materials. As more of this material becomes available we have been getting it in and on the shelves. This stuff is awesome! The added “UV” allows it to have a so called glow under the surface that makes the fish go crazy. We have gotten the Marabou in stock and we have a large variety of colors for tying steelhead and trout patterns. This stuff really is good looking, come check it out!
We have been getting a lot of new fly tying materials in the shop and I am playing catch up from the last two weeks with posts. This week I will be featuring these new materials and tools.
We got in the new Renzetti tying tools last week and these things are awesome. You can be assured that these tools have been built with the same high quality Renzetti is known for. We have an assortment of hair stacker’s, dubbing brushes, dubbing loop tool and dubbing picks. All the tools have been built out of aluminum and have been built to last.
We got some new Wheatley Fly boxes in. Lots of people have been asking about these fly boxes for storing steelhead flies. Wheatley is a great fly box that has a classic look. These boxes make any fly look good…Except a foam fly. Don’t disgrace a Wheatley with a Chernobyl Ant, it’s just wrong.
We also have tickets for the IF4 Fly Fishing Film Tour on sale until this evening at 6pm. After that you will need to buy tickets at the Colonial Theater. See ya there!
We still have a few spots left in our special topics tying classes. This will be the last month for these classes. Call and sign up today. Spots are limited and filling quickly.
Hey everybody, really quick I just wanted to let you know we received a big order from Montana Fly Company today with lots of cool new stuff. Everything from new hopper legs and some new water bottles and coffee mugs. SO if you get a minute come check it out!
Also a quick reminder that we will have a free tying demo this Saturday and Linda Windels will be the tier.
Linda grew up in a fishing family, but was not introduced to fly-fishing until 1993 while living in Golden, Colorado. There she took fly-fishing and tying lessons from a local shop. It was love at first sight. In 2001 she and husband Bill moved to Idaho Falls. She had visited the area previously to fish the South Fork with Reel Women, then again with Joan Wulff and Lori Ann Murphy. So the 2001 move was to “fly-fishing heaven.” She attended her first Eastern Idaho Fly Tying & Fly Fishing Expo (EIFTE) that year and learned more on fishing and tying than thought possible. She marvels at attending EIFTE workshops from Wayne Luallen, Chris Helm, and Leslie Harrop. Those workshops and her natural abilities serve her well. She teaches fly tying in the EIFTE’s ladies program. Her tying accomplishments are featured during EIFTE fly tying demos, and she is the subject of inquiries about taking part in fly tying events around the western states. Linda advocates that more women are needed in fly fishing and fly tying. She therefore organizes women’s fly fishing visit to destinations including the Big Hole Lodge in Montana and Falcon’s Ledge Lodge in Utah. Some participants have been doing so for as long as twenty years. Thus for any lady interested in fly tying, we highly recommend Linda’s demo. But we also recommend her demo for any fly tier. Linda’s ability and generosity accompanied by her wit and knowledge will result in an excellent event.
The East Idaho Expo is going to be here in about 6 weeks. We have gotten the fly boxes in for tiers to fill and donate. This year we have 3 different sizes to pick from. You can pick one up at the shop and return it before April 18 full of flies for the Expo to raffle or auction off. When you return it please include a business card so everyone knows who tied the fancy flies. Also if you return it early we will have a table at the shop showing off all the flies tied for the expo.
The Kreelex flash had arrived! This flash has been requested by some of you for tying the Kreelex Minnow. We now have it in 14 different colors. This stuff looks really good and will have many different applications. As I was putting the flash on the display my mind kept thinking about all the different types of flies one could use this material for besides a Kreelex Minnow. Come down to the shop and check it out you will be impressed.
