I am giving some consideration in putting together a limited run of stickers with the new logo.  Let me know your thoughts.....

MFC 2015 Catalog

As you already know, I have been building a strong relationship with the folks at Montana Fly Company over the last year.  We started off small with one of my patterns, the DDT and it has been growing in terms of popularity rather nicely. 

In the last 24 hours, the 2015 MFC catalog has gone live, and I am very pleased to say that I have a nice group of additions to this coming years catalog.  The Shimmer Stone in golden color will now be available through MFC as will my Headcase Crayfish, and Four (4) colors of my articulated Ice Pick. 

I am really excited to be a part of the MFC family and continue to watch my catalog of patterns grow with them.  I already have a bunch of stuff geared up for the 2016 season and I will update you all on the progress of those flies.  In the meantime, if you are looking to acquire some of those patterns, let your shops know where they can get them so that they will be in stock for next season. 

I will leave you with some photos from a little short session yesterday morning.  The fishing was good as you can tell.....

Fall/Winter Fly Tying Classes

Before you know it, the leaves will be changing, dropping, and snow will be falling.  What better time to get on the vise and plan for the following season.  After a 2 year hiatus of sorts, I will be back this year offering up some fly tying classes at a few of the fly shops within striking distance. 

To kick this off with some direction, I am opening up the comments section in this post to hear from you people out there in regards to what you'd like to learn or focus on in any one of these classes.  Mind you, I have some pretty cool new stuff that I plan on trickling out this fall, as well as some current classes put together, but please feel free to give your input here.  I have had several inquiries about this via email this past year, and I have some balance in my schedule once again to puts some dates together.

If you are within a reasonable days drive of my location, reach out to your local fly shop and express your interest if my locale is a little too far.  Chances are we can probably put something together near you.  As of right now I have confirmation that I will be offering up a couple of classes at my local shop, Upcountry Services in New Hartford for starters.  As soon as we iron out the details, you can check back for some dates and particulars on the classes.

Breeder Love......

Sometimes, you just gotta give it up to some breeder love and the quest for captain ugly.  This tanker ate a size 8 quill bodied jig in natural color.  Decent outing otherwise, but this guy was the surprise of the day for sure.
