The water levels are looking great for this time of year, and it looks like we’ll still be getting some more rain in the weeks ahead. With school starting next week (and me starting full swing at a new teaching job), this is probably the last consistent Friday Five post for awhile – I’ll do them as I’m able from here on out. For now, grab your cup of coffee and enjoy!
We’re rolling into August with some high water. Stay safe out there if you venture out to fish! In the meantime, grab you morning cup of coffee and enjoy the posts we have for you.

March has come in like a lion, just based on how the wind is blowing outside. The water is high, and if that’s your thing don’t be afraid to get out there!

Grab your cup of coffee, pull up a chair, and enjoy!
We’ve arrived at the last Friday Five of February! As always, we have some good selections for you to check out with your morning coffee or during a break at work. Enjoy!
This is two days late, but here are some of the flies coming from the vice over the past month.

If you’re interested in ordering flies, please fill out the Contact Form and we’ll be in touch!
There’s a big game here tomorrow as the Penn State Nittany Lions prepare to take on the Michigan Wolverines. ESPN College Gameday will be here too – it should be a great game! In the meantime, relax by grabbing your coffee and enjoying this week’s Friday Five.
Revisiting the basic patterns that you first learned is a good exercise. Maybe there are some new techniques you’ve learned to tie the pattern quickly, or maybe you just want to remind yourself that no matter how many new patterns come out there are some old standbys that are always worth having in the box.
Celebrate the first Friday of October by enjoying this week’s edition of the Friday Five. Grab your coffee and read on!
