Introducing a new fly & Somerset Fly Fishing Show this weekend

Orange Butt Shrimp

As you read here earlier in the month, this is our newest nymph pattern and is now available in our store. We've fished the Orange Butt Shrimp in lots of places (and lots of countries) and it continues to amaze us. We think that it DSC 0663cropshould be in every trout fly box. Weighted with a copper tungsten bead head, it looks shrimpy, buggy, and realistic.  

Available in sizes 10, 12, 14

$2.25 each
6 or more $2.00

Visit us at The Fly Fishing Show this weekend

ffshow 1The biggest fly fishing show in the world is coming up this weekend in Somerset, NJ. We've been busy all week updating power point presentations for Barry. He's doing Dry Fly Strategies II on Friday and Tactics for Catching Big Trout on Saturday. Cathy's putting the finishing touches on her presentation at the Women's Showcase (not for women only) on understanding rod actions, fly reels, lines & leaders. Her fly lines are cleaned for the casting demonstrations at the pool and Barry's fly tying kit is packed. I think they are about ready to go.

This is the 24th year for the Somerset Show and it's been a huge success from the very first year. Hundreds of booths representing manufacturers, shops, destinations, publishers, and fly tyers lining the outer edges of the convention hall. The weather forecast sounds good for traveling so please stop by the Sage or Frontiers booth and say hi to Barry and Cathy. (They will be at the show on Friday & Saturday only, Sunday they leave for New Zealand).
