Deschutes Drift Boat Trips
Josh Linn on The Deschuts River Because of overwhelming demand, The Fly Fishing Shop is once again offering single and multi day drift boat trips on the Deschutes River. This program will be administered by Josh Linn. Josh has many years fishing and guiding our local rivers as well as several seasons guiding for the prestigious Sandy River Lodge in Alaska. Josh's steelhead fishing skills are well known and we have put together this program to take advantage of what appears to be a premier run of steelhead on the Deschutes River during the fall season 2008.  For more information: Click Here!

New Store Hours
Normal Store Hours: Open 362 days a year from 6 am to 6 pm, PST.
For your shopping convenience The Fly Fishing Shop will be open until 9 pm Thursday & Friday evenings until October 3. 

Current Economics
The bottom line is this: Metals prices are skyrocketing. Vinyl and similar products are petroleum based, and, well I am sure you get the idea. One of the numbers we are hearing is that there will be a 30% increase in the prices of  OUTCAST Pontoon Boats and Float Tubes effective September 15, 2008. This issue gave us two choices. Stock up on certain products and reap extra profits when the prices go up, or, let clients know that this could be a good time to pick up that float tube or pontoon boat you might have been thinking about. The Fly Fishing Shop owners have never forgotten their roots in this business. It is the loyalty of customers like you that has taken us to the top. You deserve the inside track. Buy your new boat before September 15 and save 30%.

The Fish Cat Series of float tubes offers several outstanding advantages. The Fish Cat 4-LCS is an excellent value by combining a superior design with quality materials. This float tube, with a foam seat, was designed to keep anglers warmer and drier by positioning the seat above the water level. This also properly positions the angler for a more effective fin kick, offers a better field of vision and the opportunity for longer casts. The Fish Cat 4-LCS now incorporates an adjustable height stripping apron for easy entry and exit and a tensioned apron surface for better control of stripped line. Two spacious gear pockets with beverage holders keep necessities close. Constructed using two durable vinyl air cells and a 600-denier PVC bottom that resists snags and everyday wear and tear. 5-year warranty.

The Bamboo Rod Fair 2008
By: J. Morgan Jones
Metolius River Bamboo Rod Fair Bamboo Rods Old & New
As fate would have it, the wife acquired a new vehicle and felt that we needed to make a “road trip.”  Just like always keeping an eye out for rising fish, I pounced on the opportunity. “I should take you to Sisters (Oregon). What a great little town!  Shops of every description, the countryside is spectacular, good roads, and we can make a giant loop out of the drive.”  I waited for that TUG on the line before mentioning the headwaters of the Metolius river, the deli at the Camp Sherman store and, uh, the Bamboo Rod Fair that just happens to be there at Camp Sherman.  Well, we went, and she did let me stop at the rod fair. Can’t complain about that I guess.
It was a nice event, in a really nice location (to say the least). Met a few folks I did not know before this and some that I had only heard rumors of. Cast some very nice rods. I was able to overcome the urge to own a new one for some reason or another (did I mention the wife was there?).  Perhaps another time….
This event is more of a “Country Fair” setting. Laid back attitude. Craftspeople more than willing to talk about anything fishy and it seemed that most everyone knew everyone else.  Really nice event, well worth going to and perhaps you can find out for yourself what “Bamboo” rods are all about.
I came away with the feeling that they are still making them like they used to, and I was grateful to know there are people keeping all phases of fly-fishing alive.
