Guys I have really good news if you have been looking to upgrade your fly tying vise. Renzetti has made some changes to the Traveler series and that means we are offering the Traveller 2200 series on sale for $149.95! Renzetti is a great vise and I personally have been tying on one for many years…I just love it! This is a rare opportunity to get a good deal on a great vise. We have a selection of base and clamp models while supplies last.

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!

Day #2 of our 12 Gift for the Holidays. Today’s gift idea is a Buff.

A buff is usually used as sun protection while fishing, but it has several different uses. A face mask while skiing powder, a hat, dog collar and my favorite, disguising ones identity while robbing a Bank. Whatever you decide to use a Buff for there is no argument that they make great Christmas presents. We just got a new shipment in with may different patterns for Men and Women.
