With the hint of fall in the air, what better time to brush up on our quest for Great Lakes steelhead than with a review of Rick Kustich’s book. Advanced Fly Fishing for Great Lakes Steelhead is a sort of follow up book to Rick and Jerry Kustich’s 1999 book Fly Fishing for Great Lakes Steelhead.

10 featured customer product reviews for Green Caddis Outfitters fly boxes, scissors and fly tying hooks.
Several months ago we launched the GreenCaddis brand of fly tying hooks to complement our fly boxes and scissors. We are excited and encouraged by the feedback our customers have given us and we are moving into the next phase of the process which is to introduce more styles and sizes. As the temperature drops and the fishing slows we move into “tying season” and this year as you stock your boxes for next year we hope you can consider giving GreenCaddis hooks a try.
Check on the SF Fugly Packer, designed and tested by deerhair magic man Pat Cohen. Oversized and super strong, this thing is made for the tightest hair bugs.
The last cooler you will ever buy… until you want another YetiKeeping things cold is what it all comes down to, and the Yeti deliver. I loaded up the cooler with bottles of water and ice tea for a family outting recently. A few hours later I went digging for and ice tea, and found upon opening my drink, it turned to slush. The Cooler worked so well it actually made my drink partialy freeze!!!
The performance of Regal vises lies in the unique design of our head and jaws which consistently hold the hook in place better than any of the competitive vises on the market, and allows for immediate change in hook sizes with absolutely no adjustments. This saves time and frustration and the tier can meet the demands of the next fishing outing in one tying session.

This new line has a sink rate of 1ips, and while it technically lives in the same realm as sinks and intermediate lines… […]
You wouldn’t drive a railroad spike with a small finishing hammer… and you don’t want to throw big streamers with a long fine taper dry fly line. The Titan has a lot of mass up front in the double taper. which allows for the delivery of big flies. You also get the ability to generate fast line speed with minimal backcast… which in non-geek-speak means less chance of crushing yourself with a large hook and more time with the fly in the water.
It’s no secret, if fish in cold weather you get cold hands. Add to that landing fish and getting your hands wet, then you have numb fingers making fly fishing near impossible. The hunt for perfect cold weather fishing gloves is an ongoing process for all cold weather anglers and usually involved sacrificing fit for […]
The recent years have seen many improvements in fishing outerwear materials and most specifically waders. Redington has now jumped the game with not only top tier materials, but in the way a wader is constructed. No thread, no seams, no holes… The Redington Sonic Pro wader. Traditional wader construction consists of sewn fabric then sealing […]

4000 flies in one fly box? Yeah Montana Fly Company did that. Back in August at the IFTD show I was cruising all the cool stuff at the MFC booth and happened upon their new MFC Boat Box (winner in the Fly Box/Storage System category). Most people (like me) want to fish as light as […]
