2 NEW VIDEOS: The Clinch knot & The Double Uni knot

INTRODUCING KNOT NERDS... A KNOT AND RIGGING VIDEO SERIES DESIGNED TO HELP YOU BECOME MORE PROFICIENT ON THE WATER. Getting into fly fishing requires patience, attention to detail, a desire to explore nature and a few key knots to get going. Forming strong connections between your flies and the rod tip is one of the most important factors to having consistent success in the field.  Despite having no viable search on the popular online search engine, Wikipedia, the first knot to launch a series of knot videos is the 'Clinch Knot.'

Shop Update & The Twenty Incher Stonefly (FOTW)

WHAT'S NEW AT GOLDEN FLY? If you're just tuning in...Thanks again for joining us! Now that you are here let's recap what the shop has been up to:  Fall/Winter 2020: Last fall we hired on Conor Henricks to help with the retail operations and manage our growing guide staff.
