Happy New Year everyone! These next few months are those of spey and steelhead for the like minded individuals who relish cold, wet weather in the pursuit of our state fish, the wild steelhead. We have some exciting events coming up this winter and we look forward to reconnecting with everyone in the store, at a show or hopefully on the water over the next couple months.
