For those interested in becoming a better smallmouth fisherman please join us at the shop for a great seminar and fly tying event that will cover what you need to know to hook more smallmouth bass and where  to pursue these wonderful game fish.  Jeff Liskay will be on hand to share his wealth of smallmouth knowledge Saturday May 18th from 9am to 1pm.  Topics covered will be what makes a good bass fly rod, flies, locations, time of day, fly choice and more.   Also we will have on hand new gear to demo and fly tying so stop on down.  In the meantime enjoy the pics from a recent trip to the Pennsylvania wilds and remember to support your local fly shops.

The Pennsylvania wilds are full of streams and river to explore.
This trophy rainbow came from a well known PA freestone stream.

While this rainbow came from a lesser known PA freestone stream.

And this trophy brown came from a small stream you never heard off that most of us could jump across.  Opportunities for great trout fishing are nearby.

A series of small beaver ponds provided a very good morning of dry fly fishing.

This river is just what many of us needed after a long crowded steelhead season.  The fishing however was a little tough...once more bugs start popping i think that will change.

New products continue to roll into the shop.  This 4 trout T is one of my favorites.

Rainbows on a 4 weight are fun...going from 10# steelhead tippet to 5x tippet is not fun.

Spring is in the are the mayflies.

Ah Spring...take a deep breath, exhale, and bask in its splendor.  Trees are blooming, mayflies are hatching, trout are rising, bass and bluegills are bedding, and just about everything we pursue with a fly rod is attainable.  Here are a few pics of what we have been up to in the last couple weeks and remember to support your local fly shops because they support you.

Pete and Fabian caught up with each other on the Delaware river and had an epic day of trout fishing.

Justin added a great streamer pattern to the fly blog.  This one has been great for bass and pike.

Getting spring/summer gear on the shelves.

Treating yourself to a new fishing shirt, hat, or pants is a great way to kick off the season.

The PA streamer bite has been pretty good so far.

And the bass are getting hungry as well, pond bucket mouths and river smallies are all pounding baitfish patterns.

And for those looking to discover new fishes to fish for they are out there waiting all over Ohio and the midwest.
