Holiday Gift Guide, Day 7
Conterra Guide 1 First Aid Kit How many of you have and carry a first aid kit?  How many of you know where to get one small enough to carry in your vest or pack?  I know that this suggestion is not very exciting.  You can't and really don't want to use it, ...

Holiday Gift Guide, Day 5
On Day 2, I offered up an idea for a needle to pick out your knots.  Today, I am going to one up it and offer up an even better idea.  A nipper with a retractable needle to clean eyes and take out knots.  Who would have thunk it?  This is my favorite nipper...

Holiday Gift Guide, Day 3
So when you look at all the fly lines on the wall at the fly shop it's pretty similar to looking at glasses frames at the eye doctor.  They all will work in one way or another, but you have to find the one that is right for you.  The one that fits you just ...

If you are looking for ideas for your favorite fly-fisher, or maybe you want to forward this over to that gift buyer, here you go.  For the next 12 days, I am going to suggest some ideas of both fishing and fly-tying.   Some product that I use and believe i...

Happy Anniversary!!
It's already been a year since I decided to walk away from my desk job to become a full time Fly-Fishing Guide.   The year has flown by as they all do, especially this summer.  Walking away from my full time job was scary, but it was the best thing I have e...

Holiday Gift Guide, Day 6
Dr. Slick Razor Scissors I am sure a lot of you already own a pair of these awesome scissors.  If not, you need to make sure that you let someone know that you need a pair for Christmas.  For around $25.00 and available at most fly shops, it's a pretty affo...

Holiday Gift Ideas, Day 2
