Product Spotlight: The Smethurst Stone Bomb

April 11, 2013
Author: Will Rice

Here is what Adam Trina, Owner of the Montana Fly Company has to say about the Bomb Squad patterns:

“Most nymph patterns on the market were either no-bead patterns or single-bead patterns, and most of the single-bead patterns were brass, not Tungsten,” said Trina.  “The majority of Frank’s Bomb patterns have 2 Tungsten beads, and are designed to ride hook up, allowing the angler to use them as their lead fly, right on the bottom, minimizing the need for split shot.“

Adam pointed out three things that really stood out and that caught his attention when he initially evaluated the pattern:

1) There are two tungsten beads on most patterns, with one bead being smaller than the other to give a taper to the thorax. 

2) They are designed with the weight positioned on the hook in a way that makes the hook ride up, minimizing snagging on debris.

3) The patterns use Sexy Floss exclusively because of the vibrant sheen, increased flexibility, and better UV resistance over regular rubber.

Gear Review: Ross RX

Come take a boat ride with the Ross RX fly rod. First, we fished just off the coast of Nantucket for hard charging albies and then visited Guanaja, Honduras and stalked ultra spooky bonefish.  Two very different situations and fishing conditions – same 8 wt fly rod.

Gear Review: Trout’s Signature Fly Boxes

March 25, 2013

These fly boxes are awesome.  They have been hot sellers in the shop but I have never been able to test them out in the field.  When I say “test them out in the field” I actually mean stick them in my pocket and walk a saltwater flat.

Trout’s Spotlight: Simms Rivershed Boot

February 21, 2013
Author: Will Rice

Sometimes it is better just to let our satisfied customers do the talking.  We received this email last month about the Simms Rivershed Boot and thought we would share it in case you were trying to make a decision on wading boots for the upcoming season. 

"Killed it again this weekend on the Blue River and I have to say I'm ecstatic about those new Rivershed boots!  Super easy on and off and the traction with 5 screws in front and 4 in back is absolutely the best I've ever experienced.  So much better than my old felt guide boots that I had been hanging onto and also a ton lighter so I feel less tired hiking my aXX around.  Went into Cheesman and they were awesome for the long walk and up and down steeps.  No issues with them having a little less material on the ankle for support!"

Spotlight: Sage CIRCA Fly Rod

January 10, 2013
Author: Will Rice

“I was always a fan of the Sage 389 LL – it became a cult classic.  When I first cast the CIRCA my first impression was ‘WOW… this is just like a LL… but lighter.”

- Michael Gracie/Fly Rod Junkie
