November is almost upon us. Wow. What a fast year it’s been! The other day we were talking in the shop about how the summer just blitzed past. Happens every year. While fall fishing is still really good, and general season for deer and elk just opened up, we are seeing a lot more people in the shop buying fly tying material.
Tying season is almost here.
For a lot of people in Bozeman, winter means ski season. For us fly fishermen, it means it’s time to knuckle down and tie flies. If you’re like me, you compile a list throughout the year of all the flies you would like to fill your boxes with. Winter is the best time to get all that done.
We are beefing up our fly tying material selection, and will be continuing to do so throughout the next few weeks. Stop in and check it out, and if you don’t see something you want or need, let us know and we can get it for you.
We will also be offering several fly tying classes throughout the winter. We should be finalizing dates on those in the next week. Keep an eye on our social media and website to see what we have to offer.
To get things started, here are a couple swing flies that I tied up last week. These modified Hoh Bo Speys should be perfect for swinging on the Spey rod for big browns. I’ll let you know how they work…
