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.’

I used to be a respectable angler...now I fly fish for carp.”

If you have been in the fly fishing carp game – or idly standing on the banks or sidelines watching from afar – the name John Montana should ring a bell.  The blog Carp on the Fly should be on your radar screen if it isn't already.

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.
