NEW VIDEO - On the water with the G. Loomis NRX+ SF & FOTW

INTRODUCING THE G.LOOMIS NRX+ SWIM FLY: When we heard G. Loomis Fly Fishing was launching 3 new rods at once we knew we would be in for a treat. To top it off, when our local rep for G. Loomis, Brent Hermanussen, gave us an early peek at the goods with a chance to test them on the water we couldn't resist. Naturally our streamer junkie staff had to get reps on the SwimFly before putting the IMX-PRO Creek and Euro sticks to the test. The G. Loomis Swim Fly is a product deigned out of necessity. Conceptualized and brought to fruition through collaboration with Mike Schultz of Michigan's Schultz outfitters, the Swimfly has a unique taper that allows for increased...

On 5/27 Drew Wilson showed up to the shop to put a fresh coat of paint on the shop centerpiece, a 12' replica great white shark.

Greg Garcia is in the house Tying the Mini Hot Mayfly!

DRY FLY FISHING IS HEATING UP! As the water temps creep up and the last few snow flurries of the year dust higher elevations the action on the surface is heating up!   In the last two weeks we've seen BIG changes to flows and weather. Lower elevation freestones are not only rife with midge, caddis and baetis nymphs but select stretches of the Colorado, Eagle, Roaring Fork and Arkansas are seeing late morning adult BWO's and afternoon Caddis hatches!  It's time to hone in on your dry fly game if you're still staring at the bobber!  If you've been paying attention to our newsletter you might have seen several FOTW (fly of the week) references to Greg Garcia's signature fly patterns from Umpqua...
