    Our best selling caledar of all time!
    Women in Waders 2013 Calendar
    What more can I say, this calendar sells more copies in one year than all the other calendars we've ever sold combined. Pretty women in bikinis holding fish, what's not to like?

    Great Lakes Steelhead, watch out...
    Hatch Finatic 7 Plus reel
    This reel has become my favorite for Great Lakes Steelhead- I have it on my 7 weight 11' 9" Sage TCX Switch rod, it's a deadly combo! The 4" diameter reel balances the switch rod nicely, and gives quick line pick-up. The drag is like butter, sealed & super-strong. Steelhead have no chance! Love it.

    The best pack on the market? Maybe...
    Fishpond Westwater Sling Pack
    Just got in the new Fishpond Westwater Sling pack- they are awesome! Spins around behind you & stays tight to your back so it's completely out of the way, and then you just spin back in front for easy access. At 795 cubic inches it holds a lot, with water resistant zippers & fabric to keep you dry in the rain. Outer zip pocket, rod tube staps & D-ring (for net, etc.). Inside there are 2 pockets. Super-functional, extremely well-designed, user-friendly product. Two thumbs up

    The Ultimate Book on Nymphing!
    Dynamic Nymphing: Tactics, Techniques, and Flies from Around the World
    I've read as many books on nymphing as I could get my hands on, and this one is the best ever written on the subject. With mentors such as Joe Humphreys & Vladi Trezbunia, growing up in central PA, and being on Flyfishing Team USA & competing internationally all over the world, I guess George Daniels could not help but pick up a thing or two.

    The best all-around Great Lakes Steelhead rod for the money
    Temple Fork Outfitters Deer Creek Fly Rod
    Looking for the all-around Great Lakes Steelhead rod without breaking the bank? For under $330 you can have a TFO Deer Creek 11' #7 Switch rod. It's easily capable of high-sticking/bottom-bouncing, Indicator nymphing, overhead casting with one hand, and two-handed Spey Casting & swinging with with Skagit or Scandi heads. This rod will do it all. I own both rods and think highly of them both.

    Euro Nymphing? You can't touch this...
    Cortland Competition Nymph Fly Rod 10.5 foot 3 weight 4 piece
    Looking to Euro Nymph? At 10 1/2 feet and a 3 weight, IMHO this Cortland rod is the perfect length, weight & action, and at $219.95 is a STEAL! You cannot touch a rod this good at a price anywhere near this low. Balances perfectly in your hand, throws both light & heavy weighted flies, turns over long leaders when necessary, protects your tippet, and helps keep the hook from popping out of the trout's mouth. LOVE this rod! Also makes a killer wet fly/soft-hackle rod.
