Pink Body Chubby Fly
This fly is about the same size and color as some early summer stonflies and grass hoppers, none of which are pink. The Pink Chubby is on of the best all around dry trout flies for the summer of 2015. It is unsinkable and is very durable. We like to dress the wing on ours, so that it floats even longer. All trout and small mouth bass in rivers seem to like this fly. Fish it over deeper water close to the bank, and especially along heavy grass or overhanging trees. Is an especially good fly for use in a hopper/dropper set-up.                           Pink Body Chubby = 3 for $10.50

Beat the heat and UV sunburns with colorful Montana Rednecks Sun Gaiters. Getting too hot, just dip your Redneck in the cold water, ring it out and slip it over your head...nothing like cooling down the old processor to make everything more comfortable. Are you outdoors, and even the rivers and lakes are warm, remember that there is always cold water in the bottom of your cooler from melting ice...Aaaahhh!  Just as good as Buff, but less expensive!  Beautiful artwork. Montana Rednecks Sun Gaiters: Only $15.95

Mark & Patty just got back from a great fly fishing trip in Loreto, Mexico. Get a sneak peek at the July 06, 2015 Newsletter now.

Even though the water in the mountain creeks around our store is very low, catch and release fishing for native cutthroats and rainbow trout has been excellent for anglers with #2, #3, or #4 rods. Hatches include small stoneflies, PMD's & small caddis, as well as ants, beetles & bees. The best bite has been early or late in the day.

Dear Fellow Anglers:
The BNSF Railroad Company announced that they will be closing public access and posting NO TRESPASSING signs on their rail line in the Oak Springs Fish hatchery area on the Deschutes River.

Apparently during the salmonfy hatch this May, there were a lot of people fishing this area and some anglers were uncooperative in getting completely of the tracks when trains were approaching. Due to the public's unwillingness to move a safe distance away from train traffic and/or work crew activities, several complaints were called into BNSF headquarters from railroad employees. Obviously the concern from BNSF is public safety and of course not to be liable if anyone is injured or killed.

This means the public will NOT be allowed to walk along or cross the tracks from R/R mile marker 51 down stream to Whiter river. Railroad Law Enforcement will issue citations to those trespassing on railroad property. At this time the only way you access this area is by boat.

If you have questions, or would like to make a formal comment, you may contact BNSF (360) 418-6350.

You can and should contact ODFW's main office (503) 947-6000 and ask for the "Public Access Department". They specifically work on keeping public access open for our enjoyment.

We just got a shipment of: TFO BVK Fly Reels That Were Designed by Lefty Kreh
The story is that Lefty Kreh grew up poor, and while on the way to becomeing the world's most recognised and most beloved fly angler, he also learned the art of being thrifty. Lefty is an incredible athlete in his own right. In his youth, Lefty was so uncanny in the shooting sports that Remington Firearms Company hired him to demonstrate their rifles and shot guns in front of huge crowds. During mid-life Lefty wowed thousand of anglers at sportshows my demonsrating fly casting. In his heyday Lefty took fly casting to a dimension that has rarely, or maybe ever duplicated. Of course every tackle company wanted Lefty on their team. They rained the finest tackle the world make upon him. Kefty didn't need to design his own fly reels, but he remembered growing up poor, when fly fishing was a rich guy sport. Lefty wanted to design great tackle that average-income type people could afford. His rods and reels reflect the philosophy that everyone deserves a shot at fly fishing. The BVK Series of rods and reels are glorious in this respect. They are truely great tackle at an affordable price: $239.95 - $259.95 Get more information on the BVK Reels
