Covid-19 Announcement

Most international flights have been cancelled.

There is no ETA for out-of-stock items that come from Japan.

Shipments to overseas buyers will take longer than normal - possibly much longer. Patience is a virtue - especially in fishing.

Cutthroat Trout

Cutthroat Trout

After a few fish in the lake we worked our way up a beautiful small creek full of boulders and pools. This creek is not stocked at has truly wild trout. I was fishing a size 16 bead head killer bugger on my Soyokaze 27SR. This cutthroat was in a pool the size of a kitchen sink.

“The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten” – Benjamin Franklin

"Be sure in casting, that your fly fall first into the water, for if the line fall first, it scares or frightens the fish..." Col. Robert Venables 1662

As age slows my pace, I will become more like the heron.


The hooks are sharp.
The coffee's hot.
The fish are slippery when wet.
