Happy Thanksgiving!!!
So what has been happening around Northeast Ohio and CRO as of late?  I will try and sum it up for you.  Pete and Fabian where enjoying the nice Fall weather and catching nice big fish while i was working at the shop all the time.  Then the bottom fell out of the nice weather and the snow began to fall and many of the anglers went home allowing those anglers who are toughing it out some elbow room and the fishing got pretty decent.  Then it got really really cold and we got ice and more snow....pretty much no one was happy.  Now the rain is falling and temps are supposed to be in the 50's for a few days, which is great news.....steelhead anglers being eternal optimists are happy again.  The theory being that the rain and warm temps will clear out the ice and snow, bring in more steelhead, and the fishing will be awesome the weekend after thanksgiving and get many steelheaders favorite month of December off to a banging start, sounds great to me.  

Its also holiday time again and we are stocking the shop up with the latest goodies and a few surprises as well.  As always we ask that you support your local fly shop during the holidays and keep us in mind for any mail orders you may have as well.  Even if we don't have it in the shop we can get it and are  happy to get whatever you may need.  

Holiday shop hours:  
Mon:  10-6   Tue: 10-8  Wed: 10-6  Thur:  10-8

Below are some nice pics to sum up the Fall and also a preview of some great new gear and gifts we have at the shop.  Tight lines from Dan and Pete

Slobster browns have been fairly prevalent in some of the PA tribs this Fall.

Snow helped create a little elbow room on the rivers the last few weeks.

Before the real cold set in the fishing was the best it has been all season.

This early artic blast also has us looking forward to Mexico in February and the Bahamas in March.  If sun, sand and great flats fishing sounds good to you let us know, we would love for you to join us.

For all the current or wannabe swingers out there we are stocked up at the shop and may have some great deals if you stop down after Thanksgiving. 
New 2015 simms freestone and boa boots, traveling fly tying kits, wader and gear bags, fishpond vests and packs and a whole lot more.

FYI Rum is not for sale but many other great gifts for the fly fisher!
