Jimmy’s is proud to introduce our own line of fly floatant. “Home Brew,” is a silicone based floatant that is temperature stable liquid. It is easy to apply and does not leave an oil slick. We also have a dry shake, and a classic floatant that resembles gink. Home Brew is produced in the basement of our very own fly shop. One would find these operations right next to the bobbers, dumbbell weights, swivels, and some old rusty Eagle Claw bait hooks. Unfortunately we are unable to give public tours due to industry, and trade secrets. Just trust us when we tell you that it is beautiful sight to behold.
We are continuing to get closer and closer to the 16th Annual East Idaho Fly Tying/Fly Fishing Expo and Banquet. This event will be held on April 17-18, 2009 at the Shilo Inn in Idaho Falls. This event is a really fun weekend. The expo features fly tiers from all over the United States and some from different countries. There are workshops, and classes that focus on tying flies, and fly fishing. They also offer a complete womens program on both days. Click here to go to the website and check out all the activities for the Expo. As always Jimmy’s will have a booth set up with our latest in fly tying merchandise. Be sure to come by and say hello.
