Profound River



John Gubbins new book, Profound River, is the first full length portrait of the life of Dame Juliana Berners, the first person to write a book about sport fishing and fly fishing. She was also the first woman to publish in English. Her books on field sports were England's best sellers for almost 200 years."In time her name fell into oblivion," says John Gubbins. This is the first book ever to tell the story of her life. Remarkable research by the author.

Available at Amazon.

This realistic-looking black foam beetle sports silicone legs and a high-viz wing making it easy to find on the water. Like the super bugger, this pattern belongs in your fly box. It's a great search pattern and is literally unsinkable. We've fished it from Patagonia to New Zealand, the Bighorn and back home again with great success.

Sizes: 8-10-12  $2.00 each

Super Beetle Selection: 4 of each size. Boxed. 1 doz. $21.95.

The new Sage ONEs are making a big hit here as it is the perfect rod, when loaded with a Rio Grand line, for turning over big bushy dries and heavy nymphs on long leaders, sometimes 18' long.
