Re: Flowstone Lures - Made in Lanesboro

Thanks for the order hunn360! I went back and refunded your 10% so no worries there. Let me know what you think of the lures (and flies). Good luck and let me know if you have any questions as you start fly fishing!

Re: Caddis dry fly - hackle or not?

I tied up some size 16-18 caddis this year and skipped the hackle. I used EP fibers for the shuck and tied some EP fibers in under the deer hair (I tied it in just like deer hair at the the head of the fly but it doesn't flare so it sits nicely under the deer hair). I seriously couldn't keep the thi...

Re: Leaders?

I started tying my own leaders a few years ago and used this video tutorial - https://vimeo.com/91408485 . I bought a half dozen or so spools of Maxima as he suggests and then use my normal 2x-6x tippet spools. I use blood knots on the upper knots (they're pretty simple on higher diameter line) and ...

Flowstone Lures - Made in Lanesboro

As the winter season has been under way for a few weeks and spring fishing starts to take up our thoughts, consider shopping local if you use spinning lures. My sons and I build Flowstone lures in our basement just outside of Lanesboro - I think you'll be happy with them. Use code mntroutforums to g...

5 driftless rods?

Like most of us I'm guessing, I'm always thinking about my next fly rod. I like the idea of waiting for closeouts, sales, and even used rods to obtain them on the cheap, but occasionally I find one and I'm not sure if it's worth it, if I'd use it, if it's the right length, etc. So I got to thinking ...

Re: Wading Boot Outsoles

Thanks for all your thoughts. For now, I've ordered the Orvis Ultralights which have Vibram rubber soles. I like the idea of the hiking boot feel. I'm going to forego the studs this fall (and for the off chance I get out over the winter) and will add them later if I miss them. I'm a little skeptical...

Wading Boot Outsoles

My wading boots are officially done. I'm wondering what everyone is using for outsole material. Mine were studded felt and they were great. I don't remember slipping even one time in them. As I look at newer models though - like the two most recent offerings from Orvis, they don't even have a felt o...
