Just returned from first road trip of the Spring. It was GREAT. Always fun to meet with dealers in their shops. Highlights were chilling with Jeff at The Fly Fishers place in Sisters, OR and the whole package that is THE Fly Shop in Redding, CA.
I love small a cool small town vibe, and Sister’s was rocking it this day – or maybe it was just the nice time had discussing our unique bsuiness with Jeff.
The Fly Shop event exceeded my expectations in every possible way. The event was huge, the crew working for Mike at the Shop are the best, the after hours party was killer, and the next day fishing was fantastic.. I was lucky enough to hike into a little fishing river The Fly Shop has access to with Eric, Cory, and one of their buddies Smokey. We took turns catching (or failing to land) fish and spent the entire day rock hoping, catching little fighters, and having a great time.. Both Eric and Cory are excellent anglers, with Cory hving one of the best casts I have ever witnessed.. I kept it real by tangling my line few times and putting my reel on backwards, yeah buddy! Great day, made me question my lack of respect for “nature” in California.. I’m already asking to go back next year.
