So head over there now and get it done.
Oh, you want this. You want this real bad. The new Montana Fly Company Watertight Phone Bag works great for underwater video and fish release pics and all touch screen phones are fully functional inside the bag. Users can even have conversations and text sessions while it’s in the bag. And you can tether it to yourself so if it falls, it doesn’t get lost.
We know you never get tired of seeing pictures of our fishing escapades that we take on the weekends. And we know you love nothing more than staring at our fish porn while you sit in a desk chair, working away, waiting for the weekend so you can hit the water.
We want you to know that you’re not alone. We too sit in an office staring at other fish lovers’ photos, just waiting for the clock to hit five so we can get out and snag the next best pic.
Montana Fly Company fly tier Casey Dunnigan just sent us this more than drool-worthy photo of him and a beautiful Brown Trout from the Dream Stream in Colorado. Lucky for you, our readers, we decided to share it with you. We probably couldn’t be more jealous if we tried.
All that being said, if you have an impressive photo of you with a fish, or an almost fish, send it to us. We would love to share your fishporn with the world. Don’t worry, we’ll serve credit where credit is due.
How is it already Friday morning?
We got to Reno on Tuesday, started setting up immediately upon arrival and now, somehow, it’s already Friday. We’re pretty certain that we’ve been working so hard that the time has just flown by, but it also could be due to the amounts of beer that has been consumed.
In case you couldn’t tell from our previous blog and Twitter posts, it’s a thousand degrees in Reno. We made a decision early on that any fluids we sweat out would be replaced primarily with beer and a little bit of water. We thought it only suitable for the atmosphere. And anybody who knows anything knows that good beer is best paired with fly tying fisherman. So we decided to accommodate.
Cody Townsend and many other great folk decided to come hang out yesterday and try their hand at tying a San Juan worm – blindfolded. So far the results are impressive but we haven’t quite decided who the messiah of the One Fly Open contest is going to be.
Maybe it’s you? You never know until you try. Check out our pictures from last night’s Happy Hour and if you’re at IFTD, come by and grab a beer (or six) today at 3:00 pm for our even Happier Hour. All drinking abilities welcome.
We know the Boat Box is great for boaters. Duh. And when it comes to using it on the water we’re just as obsessive compulsive as you are about keeping our flies organized, clean and dry, making sure every slot is filled methodically before each and every fishing trip and reorganizing them afterward.
The Fiberglass Manifesto is a blog that focuses primarily on fiberglass fly rods as well as fishing chronicles, trips and product. Host of the website, Cameron Mortenson, recently wrote a blog about his Boat Box experiences.
We think it’s great, but you can see for yourself. Check out the full article here.
Schule has guided in Arkansas since 2003 and guides about 140 days out of the year.
His favorite fishing times on the White River are mid to late summer when the hoppers are in full force and the fall through the winter throwing huge streamers for big brown trout. If that doesn’t call for a Boat Box, we don’t know what does.
Check out Bob Cook’s great operation, Blue Ribbon Fly Shop, northern Arkansas’ oldest fly shop, as well as his adjacent coffee house, the Anglers Coffee Cafe. It’s a mainstay for locals and a “don’t miss” for visitors.
We have one week left until Outdoor Retailer Summer Market 2012. Getting down to the wire doesn’t even begin to cover it. Our eyes are tired from preparation and our fingers are bare from tying so many worms (we have to be on the top of our game and we’re not taking any risks.)
Our contest at OR is going to start bright and early Thursday morning at 9 am and go through Saturday at 4 pm. All you have to do is show up, get blindfolded, tie a San Juan worm, and it’s high-fives all around. Anyone is welcome and encouraged to participate, as our expert team members Adam and Stirling will be there to guide the way. Come and try your hand at tying your own San Juan worm and/or making fun or Stirling’s facial hair.
We’ll provide the fixins, all you have to do is swing by for five minutes and try to tie your own worm. All the worms will be put on display for OR to come and vote for their favorite. Winner gets a MFC Madison Reel. Give us your best shot!
Anybody who’s anybody knows that MFC has the best flies in the biz. But what you may not know is that Montana Fly Company is actually quite handy when it comes to a bunch of other stellar gear as well. We have award-winning iPad folders, iPhone cases, the famous Waterproof Boat Box and fly boxes to name a few. And don’t forget about our Madison Reel.
We know it’s awesome, but lucky for us Trek Tech blog also thinks it’s pretty neat.
“The drag system is smooth and allows for fine adjustments. The knurled aluminum drag knob has a great feel and is easy to find while fighting fish.”
“The look of the Madison II makes this reel standout among others. Graphic finishes include olive, bonefish, the trouts (brown, rainbow and brook) and the hard-to-find (grey camo and river rock). I found the reel’s finish to be like Gina Carano, beautiful and hardy”
We couldn’t agree more. Check out the full article here!
After a long, hard week at the office, Stirling and his wife Kirtlye hit the river to land a few fish and have an excuse to put their MFC Boat Box to the test. Needless to say it performed under the pressure.
It was an unbelievably beautiful Sunday in Montana. The sun was shining, the fish were biting and Stirling’s beard was on in full force.
The two headed out on the Flathead and throughout the day Stirling and Kirtlye were able to land a few good sized cutties with their trillions (ok, hundreds) of flies stored in their Boat Box.
National Sales Manager Jake Chutz and Regional Sales Rep Stirling Tyler of MFC played hooky this weekend and headed out to “The Bob” for an epic weekend of beard growing, beer drinking and most importantly, fishing. Stirling (who has been questioned more than once about being a yeti due to his unruly facial hair) and Jake hooked some pretty impressive bullies and cutties while they were out in the Bob Marshall Wilderness. Check out their photos (and Stirling’s beard) below.
