It's Show Season!
The Fly Fishing Show season kicked off last weekend in Denver with a great show and it's headed east. Looking for new tackle, shopping for a fly fishing trip, interested in a seminar or watching the dozens of demonstrating fly tiers, or just want to get out for the day – the shows are where it's happening.
We hope to see you at the Edison, NJ, show. January 25, 26, 27! Stop by the Sage or Frontiers booth and say hi.

RIO's New Fly Clips and Twist Clips
RIO wants us to use less tippet material? Seriously? Well, yes. That's one benefit of the new RIO fly clips and twist clips. The other benefit is that it simplifies attaching and changing flies. Recommended for wet flies – nymphs, soft hackles, streamers, etc.
This week's RIO Fly Fishing Tip shows how to easily and quickly attach a fly using a Fly Clip, or twist Clip. Not only does a clip add speed to the rigging process, but also is great in low light conditions, and works really well at preventing leaders, tippet and droppers from getting too short. Both versions available in three sizes, 10 to a pack. $3.99 and $5.99. Check it out today at your local RIO dealer.

A River's Last Chance
Guide and photographer Jason Hartwick takes us on a visual and written journey of the Eel River in northern California. With stunning photography and just enough verbiage to get his important message across, this short story and video gives us cautious encouragement and hope for the Eel in a time of uncertainty for the future of most clean wild rivers.
Thank you Jason and Sage.
