I'm getting caught up once again, which feels really good. The new house is coming into shape, business is good, weather is much nicer, and sounds like the fires are getting under control. Add to that, Salmonflies and clean water and there's not too much to complain about.
I spent the day in the shop getting caught up on a variety of things. We've added a lot of new products this year, including a crapload more flies. We went heavier with big streamers, added more Bass and Pike flies, plus all the usuals like new dries and nymphs. I took some pics today for the e-commerce site and was amazed at how much some of thes flies sell for now and that people actually buy a lot of them. Although most of the flies are still in the $2-$3 range, a lot of the big streamers are now selling for $4-6 and some of the Pike flies are on the upside of $10! Anyway, heres what a $15 Pike fly looks like and an $8 streamer just incase you're curious!
