With steelhead season fast approaching we are happy to share with you a great new DVD; Skagit Revolution. Tom Larimer, a well known and respected guide in the Pacific Northwest and beyond, demystifies spey casting and in particular shows you how to fish with these techniques. It is definitely one of the best we've seen! Check it out!
We highly recommend these for your wading shoes. If you're planning on steelheading this fall you should really make sure you have a pair of these. Even if you have felt soles, you will not regret buying these MICROspikes. They work great here on the Housy and our boulders, but they will work anywhere including the ice.
Our Boron III LS series combines cutting-edge boron technology with the renowned "Winston Feel" to produce the most advanced light line trout rods made. The medium-fast action is lively and responsive, and allows anglers to delicately present flies with pinpoint accuracy. Exceptionally lightweight, these rods offer the touch, feel and control required by small stream and spring creek enthusiasts, or anyone who enjoys stalking big fish with small flies while protecting light tippets.
Steadfast and stylish, Guru has long set a standard as a rugged, fully USA-machined ultra-reliable reel at a great price. This season we’ve updated Guru’s spool geometry for enhanced retrieve rates, opened the porting to reduce weight and improve line drying, integrated the counterbalance and introduced a curved cross section arbor for structural stability.
