Exciting news! Spring Creek Films, awesome flyfishing filmmakers, has signed up for a video project with MFC.
Take a look at their blog post about their plan to head to Thailand and film some amazing stuff about our facilities there.
Travis Lowe, chief angler and camera holder at Spring Creek, is excited about getting to Thailand for more than the filming, of course. Here’s what he writes:
But it’s the Thai Mahseer fishing that Adam is promising to show me that’s got me stoked. MFC has the exclusive lease on two rivers in Thailand to guide only fly fishing from November through June each year. The one thing I’m not stoked about is the two day journey and accompanying jet lag.–Travis Lowe
So, stay tuned. Looking forward to seeing the fishporn when it comes out!
Montana Fly Co. fly guy extraordinaire, Bruce Berry, recently made a trip to visit the MFC factories in Thailand to train our Steelhead tying team. He was teaching them them tricks on how to get perfect “glass bead-like” thread heads.
The key to a super sweet steelhead head is with a super secret recipe of cement. The picture below shows Bruce testing different cements on the turner.
He was also training our tying team on how to perfect tube flies. We are now using mostly Pro Tubes, like on Berry’s Hoax fly. Five new flies for 2012 (sneak peek soon) are using the Pro Tube system: www.proflyter.com and we are very, very happy with the results.
This has GOT to be one of the coolest fishing albums we’ve seen. These pics are by Robert Price, a friend of our good pal Sam Wike from Big R Fly Shop. Robert visited Thailand last week and went along on one of the masheer trips we host. The color on this fish is incredible. And take a look at the aerial view. Awesome!
MFC has the exclusive lease on two rivers in Thailand to guide only fly fishing from November through June each year. If any of our Facebook friends would like to go on one of these trips, contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Come fish for giant masheer in crystal-clear water! We’d also like to invite you to tour our two Thailand MFC fly factories. We’re very proud of them, and we want to make sure people get to see where all the magic becomes reality.
