Musky Madness is soon approaching and you do not want to chase them without this fly. Brought to creation by Musky Guide Brian Porter it has and still brings the "Champions" to the boat everytime. Coming in at a few inches shy of 12 this fly is coupled with massize 5/0 and 4/0 saltwater Gamakatsu hooks, the finest in production. Production was limited so get them while they last. Cast with Echo's Echo 3 10wt, Airflo's Forty Plus Cold Saltwater Fast Intermediate WF10F and you will get them in the danger zone.
New colors for Musky Doubles: Hot Orange, Ice Blue, and Hot Pink. Tied thick with long synthetic tails.
Hairy Ass Stone. Our local area favorite for Spring run and Fall run Steelhead. Perfect for highsticken' and swinging on the end. Use with lots of split shot during colder months and do the deaddrift. Fight fish and drink good beer!! Great for Brule River Steelhead!!
The New RL Winston BIII SX 9' 8wt is in stock and what a blast it is to cast!!
RL Winston's BIIIX 9' 5wt JWF is a true Gem to behold, check out reviews on "What's New" tab on your left!!
If you have'nt jumped on to the up and coming Swith Rod concepts and beleive that it would'nt work up here on our smaller North Shore Rivers and Wisconsin's Brule, then take a moment to do some research and then get out and try what these rods can offer. I have been using a Switch now for around 3 years and I can honestly say, What I have been missing all these years!! Increased drifts, better line control, excellant hook ups, advantages in the fight and best of all it gets you closer to a Spey set up with out getting into a full Spey set up. Prices Range from Echo's 10'10"s at around $330.00 to RL Winston's 11'6" BIIMX at $835.00. Prices vary just like your style of casting varies. Cheers!!
RL Winstons 11'6" BIIMX Switch is a rod you must try to believe!! See "What's New" for a total review!!
New Dahlberg Diver in stock "Shad Boy" John Fehnel's hand-tied signature pattern- "Shad Boy". The "Shad Boy" derived from numerous request for a white dahlberg diver. Late in the season when shad or small bait fish come up in the shallows, its a feeding frenzy, all you have to do is throw it in the crazy pile!! See On Line Shopping for more details!
Block Heads now in stock in size #2's. When on the Miss or any other river where smallies are a must!! Get ya Some!!
Get your "Colorado Stoner" for the coming up Steelhead season!!

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.
