About the new Scott Radian, and betting on whether Gracie will get kicked off the pro staff

June 11, 2013
Author: Tucker Ladd

Scott Fly Rod sent our guy Michael Gracie a prototype rod to test and provide feedback on.  He did as they asked, except when it came to keeping mum on his findings.  Roughly a month before the rod hits shop floors, he’s gone and blogged about it.  Read the brief review of the new Scott Radian 905/4 here.  We are now taking wagers on how Scott will react to the premature disclosure – sending black helicopters to surveil Michael’s home presently tops the list at 3:1 odds.  Meanwhile, we should have our first shipment of the Radians in the shop in just a few weeks time – call or come by to reserve your Radian, check on availability, or just place your bet.

Exploring new fisheries and experimenting on your own is a great way to experience the State of Colorado with a fly rod.  Here is an article on the same topic that was published in the Drake Magazine that might be of interest if you have aspirations of going off the grid and exploring new frontiers on your own.

Fly Fishing Report: Waterton Canyon June 1st

June 7, 2013
Author: Will Rice

The first fish I hooked after a six mile bike ride up Waterton Canyon was a 13” or 14” rainbow that ate a red tungsten rojo midge.  The fish took the fly in a small section of slower moving water right in front of a two foot waterfall.  It first came toward me and then turned downstream just as quickly.  I knew that if the fish went into the faster water and over the small falls it was game over – there would be no chase due to the large and loose rocks that surrounded me.  I held the fish as best I could – it finally came up with a big head shake and spit my hook.

Game over.

TROUTS SPOTLIGHT - HOWLER BROTHERS

June 7, 2013
Author: Will Rice

When I first came across Howler Brothers, a few lines in their catalog caught my attention.

“We are Howler Brothers.  We are not really related by blood.  But we are bonded by many shared calling: surfing, fishing, paddling, and the good things that come with these pursuits.  Things like fire pits, really good tequila, limes and pre-dawn coffee.”

I thought to myself: I like these guys already.’
