  • 3.27.2023…Winters passing, bugs are hatching

    Spring came early this year. Could not ask for nicer weather for the end of March. We could ask for more water but you can’t get everything you want.

    Guided trips trips are rolling out the door and clients are walking back in with big smiles.

    Hendricksons, blue winged olives,, early black stones, and midges are getting the fish going. Hard to go wrong with Hendrickson and olive nymphs.

    Anglers are reporting some success with dry flies.

    Our guide calendar has filled up fast. We do have at least one or two guides still available most days in April. Call the shop for availability and to book.

    A big thanks to everyone who came out to the extravaganza weekend. It’s always a blast and that’s because of you! So thank you.

    Taking advantage of the diverse fishing options in our neighborhood. Fly bite has been heating up on our local rivers. Pre Spawn smallies coming in hot!

We are a bamboo friendly shop and offer fine handcrafted rods from nationally known makers such as J.D. Wagner and Jim Downes, plus a few select up and coming cane rod builders.
