We overheard a customer saying as he entered the shop:
“I haven’t been in a fly shop in over three years, I just wanted to come in and smell it.”
The No-Slip Mono Loop Knot is used for tying on bigger flies so they have a little more action. A clinch-type knot grabs onto the eye and constrains movement. Sometimes a little more wiggle in your fly can make all the difference.

This knot is perfect for tying a loop in the thick end of a new leader or in the end of a piece of butt-section.
A special thanks to Greg Pearson for his great illustrations!
VIDEO: The boys got together for some sweet steelheading action. We were able to see our share of steelhead. They were happy to eat dry flies and lightly dressed patterns swung on dry lines.
We would have been content to never come home, but colder weather wasn’t too far off….
VIDEO: Everyone thinks that working in a fly shop is just fun and games. Sitting around tying flies behind the counter all day, right? I don’t think so! We had the opportunity to retire an old trusty piece of office equipment and decided it would work just as good as a stress ball. We took care of it and did it as an homage to a classic film too.
