You'll find a new page on this website for the Holidays - the Holiday Gift Guide is now up & running!
Are you looking for unique gift ideas for those specials anglers in your life? Well, for a bunch of great ideas that will fit almost any budget, be sure to take a look at the guide. There you'll find a bunch of different items that any fly angler will enjoy.
You'll also note that a couple of accessories are on sale for the Holidays. These are available in limited quantities, so be sure to get your orders in to me early. Once the stock of those items is depleted it will be a while before I have more made. The Holiday sale items include my fishing bags & the unique Mini Pack.
You'll also find other gift ideas there as well, including my leather fly wallets, which are very popular with fly anglers.
new leather accessories coming soon!!
That's right - soon the leather fly books will be back, redesigned & better than ever. I know folks are going to love these & I can't wait to share them with you all. Stay posted here!
In addition to the accessories listed on the gift guide, you'll find an explanation of how you can go about ordering a custom fly rod for someone special. This is a great gift that they'll enjoy for a lifetime! Think of it as a gift certificate for not only the fly rod of their dreams, but also for the experience of working with a custom rod maker to have their rod made to their specific requests. They'll enjoy the experience of having the rod made for them & then fishing with the rod for many seasons to come. Plus, you can get the special gift certificate for the custom rod in a very elegant leather document case - this makes the presentation of the certificate even more special.

Hopefully I have the answers for you. If you're looking for a gift for a special angler, & you're just not sure what to do, feel free to contact me & ask for advice. Even if it's something I don't offer, I'll give you my honest opinion & thoughts. I want everyone to have a great Holiday season & if I can help you pick out a gift for the anglers on your list, I'm happy to do so.
As always, if you need to order something, or you have any questions at all about anything, please feel free to contact me anytime.
If you're here reading this, you're probably already into fly fishing - or have a loved one who is - & so you already know all about the sport. But when fly fishing get the attention of the larger portions of our society, it's always nice. Hence, this story that aired on CBS News late this past summer.
I like this video if for no other reason than to see Joan Wulff. In her 90's, she's still out there & getting it done. Way to go Joan!!!
So sit back & enjoy a few minutes of the main stream media showing the non-anglers what it's all about!
