Just learned from Tom Keer this morning that we are featured in USA Today's Hunt & Fish Magazine, along with a couple other notable fly fishing and hunting schools. Summer fall 2013, $5.99, on newstands now. Thanks Tom. Take a look.
Our friend Art was with us in Africa & photographed this hopper on the front porch of his tent in the Masai Mara. It measured 2 3/4 inches long! Makes us anxious to get to the Bighorn next week for some hopper fishing. Thanks Art for sharing this photo!
Barry and Cathy have been traveling to Alaska to fish for years now, and many of you have joined them. One of the most well known and best places to fish for salmon, Alaska has been a favorite on our trip schedule. Please join with us in fighting to save this wonderful fish and wildlife resource that is in jeopardy. Go to savebristolbay.org to read more about it. You can also view another great article about the Jewelers support HERE.
The Becks have plans to return to Alaska in 2014. We're still working out the details but the dates will be July 26-August 2. If you're interested feel free to call or email us here at the office and we'll get you more information. We're looking forward to a great trip as always!
As promised, here are a few photos from the IFTD show in Las Vegas this week. The word from the Becks is that it has been a success & everyone seems to be enjoying themselves! Fly fishing in Vegas-- who knew?!
I'm also including some photos I grabbed from Barry's computer of their recent trip to Africa. We haven't finished editing and sorting all of his 3,000 photos, but I couldn't wait to share a few with you. Wow! Talk about a bucket-list destination! Barry's photos are phenomenal. Africa is a biennial trip, so if you're thinking about a safari, plan to join us in 2015! Enjoy!
Barry and Cathy are on their way to the International Fly Tackle Dealer Show (IFTD) in Las Vegas this week. At the show Sage will introduce their new rod models like the Motive and the Method. We can't wait for you to try them out! You can read more about them HERE. Photos of the show to come....
It's no secret that Tibor Reels have a well-earned reputation for quality and endurance. In 2011, Tibor recieved first place honors from the IGFA for the most world records set on their reels- more than any other reel in history. While most of us are familiar with the quality products that the Tibor Reel Company produces, what most people don't know is the man behind the reel. His story is even more impressive than his award winning reels.
Are you looking for an adventure this fall? Do you need a break from the chaos of everyday life? Would you like to go somewhere even Barry & Cathy haven't been yet? If so, than our upcoming exploratory trip to Spain is for you. The Becks will be traveling to the Pyrenees, in northeastern Spain in search of big trout. We just firmed up our dates which will be October 12-20th and still have space available. You can check out our website for more information and details but please feel free to call us at the office (877-278-5638) if you have any questions. We hope you'll join Barry & Cathy on this unique opportunity.
