Fire Tiger Sunfish is becomming a mainstay in most warm water enviroments. And rightly so, It ROCKS!!!! When fly fishing places where you know the beast lie, then ring its dinner bell. Strip back to the boat from shore and prepare yourself for a mind blowing, arm rippen take. Smallies, Musky, and big Northerns cannot resist this temptation and will attack it with all their might. Tied on a Gami Salt Water Bad Ass Hook is pure insurance that it will stick and keep stickin.

We are a unique fly shop in a very unique area of Lake Superior. We specialize in quality hand tied flies and information for fly fishing for Steelhead,Musky and Smallmouth in our region.
As we continue to find ways to protect and be less entursive toour Wild Steelhead our shop now sells and uses exculusively Ultra Lightweight Clear Injected Molded Bags with Soft Rubber Feel on all our Steelhead Nets and Boat Nets. These nets as you see are non abrasive on the fishes outer area as well alot easier to get the hook retrieved without fouling in the net which other nets seem to do so well.
