New Tying Materials for 2011

Here are a few of the new goodies coming out for 2011 for all you tyers. Most are in stock now here at the shop, and others are on there way. As the new stuff becomes available, I will fill all of you in on the blog.

New Color…“Sunburst Yellow” Amherst Pheasant Tail will add a great look to any intruder.




One of the coolest new products I’ve seen in a while. All brass rainbow beads. Sub these on any beaded fly to get a whole new look.






Making extended bodies has never been easier. 3 different sizes per pack to tie anything from a #18 PMD to a #4 Salmonfly.







New Hen Pheasant Skin. Every feather in this skin is beautiful. Soft hackles, stone nymph legs, caddis wings, whatever you can think of. Endless uses.

Time to hang it up?

Not hardly! For many, November marks the time to tube the rods, dry the waders, and break out the vise for a long winter of filling the boxes back up for the upcoming season. One of the best things about living in the PNW is the 12 month fishing calander. November is no exeption. Actually, I have found November to be some of the best fishing of the year. There are lots of fish around and the bulk of the crouds are not. My biggest problem this time of year is that there are more options than days available to fish. So, here is the break down:

Steelhead: The “D” will continue to put out fish all month. From Pelton to the mouth and all points in between, there are Steelhead waiting to be intercepted on their journey upstream. Pay attention the White River and adjust your efforts accordingly. The coast will see a few early winter runs later this month. I have heard reports that the Olympic Penninsula has already put some winters on the beach. The John Day, Grande Ronde, Umpqua, and Rouge are all good places to look for fish.

Salmon: Go west. The coast is currently fishing great, and will continue all month. The Wilson, Nehalem, Trask, Nestucca, Alsea, Siletz. etc. etc. etc. Lots of options out there. As the month moves on, the Elk and Sixes will be a good choice. Dont forget about Chum on the Kilchis, and Miami. After the closer on the 15th, you can head to the Puget Sound and fish them past Thanksgiving.

Trout: Back eddy BWO’s. Some of the most fun in all of fly fishing. With the cooler weather, the hatches can last for hours.
