High Water

This smallie wasn't too camera shy on a recent bass outing
We've gotten plenty of rain this week and another rainy system is moving in as I write this post. The heavy rains from the other day sent most rivers and streams through the roof! The Lamoille was right up to it's banks in many downstream locations and it wouldn't have taken too much more water to create some serious flooding situations. The smaller streams, especially those with steeper drainage have cleared nicely but are still running seasonally high. We received plenty of calls this week inquiring about conditions on the rivers. Make sure to check USGS Gauges before heading out!  
Fly tying with Gina Bullard from WCAX
This past week we had a visit from Gina Bullard from WCAX News. Gina did a segment on our business which was featured on WCAX's "Made in Vermont" series. We taught Gina to tie her own fly and she even got to test it out afterwards! No fish for Gina, but Mike did get to demonstrate a hookup on a small rainbow.

We've been tying 'round the clock to keep up with demand! Get in here and check out some quality local ties!
