Streamer Eaters

Shop owner Rod King was able to get out and throw streamers during one of the first days of the year that really felt like fall.  Fishing was a little slow, but he was still able to connect with this beauty.  We were all a little surprised that it was as colored up as it was, this early in the year.  

There are few things as pretty as a brown in it's full spawning colors...

Labor Day Sales

Labor Day is almost upon us, and with it the official end of the summer season.  Hard to believe that the season is just about over... The cold snap last weekend and being able to look up and see snow on the peaks around town is a stark reminder that fall is on its way.  

Browns on the Yellowstone

Guide Ray Bernardo got his client Michael Buck into this hog of a brown on the Yellowstone recently.

Even the dogs days of summer can produce some big fish!

The Browns of Summer

The shop blog has been a little slow this summer.  Apologies.  It’s amazing how fast days can fly by with a shop full of customers!  It has been a great year for fishing, and lots and lots of happy people have been out on the local rivers enjoying the bounty of our waters.

Bozeman Art Walk This Weekend

The Art Walk returns to downtown Bozeman this Friday, August 8.  Our featured artist is Bozeman based photographer Shane Rickert.  Shane is a gifted photographer, and his work has appeared on two magazine covers, several ads, and has popped up all over the fly fishing industry.  He is also a regular contributor to the fly fishing blog Chi Wulff.  You can check out more of his work on his website here: Shane Rickert Photography.

Transition Time

"Hoppers" is the word.  Every day, shop employees get asked by at least half a dozen people when the hoppers are going to start fishing.  The best we can say is that the hoppers are out and about, but they're not quite on the rivers yet.  The Bozeman area continues to get sporadic rainstorms every few days that keep the fields filled with moisture, which is what grasshoppers like.
