Drakes!

Wild Lamoille Rainbow
After a dry start to the season, we finally have a decent bit of water in the system and some cooler temps which are good for both angler and fish. Typically around the end of May / beginning of June, one of our larger mayflies of the season, the Brown Drake, hatches primarily along siltier sections of the Lamoille and tribs. This is really one of the first hatches of the season that tends to get every fish in the river looking up for a chance at a big, meaty, mayfly meal. If you get lucky enough to experience a Brown Drake spinner fall, you might not soon forget it since you're likely in for a fishy evening.
Between tying, teaching and guiding it's been a very busy season for us thus far! Thanks a ton to all of you that have shown your support...we can't do it without you... It's great to have such loyal customers!

This week we had a visit from Gina Bullard of WCAX News. GMT will be featured in an upcoming segment of "Made in Vermont," focusing on our local fly production. Don't miss it!...scheduled to air Monday 6/8 at 6pm!
The bass fishing has been great lately and we've got a great selection of patterns in stock for bass and pike, so be sure to stock up before your next outing! 
In the day and age of social media, our website posts often take a back seat. Be sure to follow us in social media land on Vimeo, where we produce and release a new fly tying video each Tuesday, as well as on Facebook and Instagram, where we try to post fresh content daily! 

Here's this week's tying video....Stanley's Mini-Hopper...
