Don’t Hate

Lot’s of people look down on fish that aren’t trout.

What a Sucka

Why? I don’t. The Suckers, The Pikeminnows, and the Grand White Fish. They eat the same things trout do.

They don’t just roll over when you hook them either, and lots of time you’re not sure it’s not a trout until you can see it.

I say live it up. Use them as practice for landing fish. At least you know your fly is working. And whats cooler than a fish without teeth that eats a streamer?

So don’t hate on the “Non-Trouts”. They are fish too.

It’s absolutely beautiful out today. Get out and go fishing.

Big Bugs

The Big bugs. But not always. We love them, but we really love the fish that gorge themselves on them. Skwalas, Nemouras, Goldens, Salmon.

We dig ’em.

We love all of them and really cant get enough. We have visions of spring in our minds. It will be here before you know it.

Mayfly Madness

They are here in numbers. Big numbers.



The Mahogany.

The fish know they are here too. Pods of rising fish in ever direction from Our beloved fishing town. You really cant go wrong. Play the clouds and stay of of the wind. Get it in their feeding lane, drag free, and get ready. They will eat it…

See you posted up on the risers.

These savage fish haunt the sloughs and backwaters of our rivers and we have what you need to go toe to toe with them.

If rising trout get your heart pounding wait till you see a pike rocket towards your fly from their hiding place in the weeds. They are built for speed and love to show it off to a well presented fly.

Throwing flies that are bigger than a lot of trout is fun. Seeing the big fish eat them is even more fun and a little bit addictive.

With these fish its go big or go home. Don’t bother with your 5 weight, grab a 7 and a big reel, and unless you want to lose a bunch of flies don’t worry about your regular mono. Go Steel.

Come on in and we will get you set up to catch these predators and we can even give you the low down on where to go.
