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.

Arkansas River Fly Fishing Report: April 6, 2013

April 7, 2013
Author: Trouts Staff

It had been about 5 years since I had fished the Arkansas River, and was blown away at the healthy river, active fish, epic hatches, and overall amazing day on the water.  The Ark is known for brown and rainbow trout – and that is what we were after.  Make the jump for the entire report.
