And it's the best damned
steelhead fishing in the world.

l don't know.
Start a little fishing camp.    

Guide operation. Whatever.
We will post the answer tomorrow, good luck.

Answer: Playboy Magazine, 1981

“What Sort of Man Reads Playboy?”

The sort of man who wants to do whatever he does as well as he can–and have fun at it.  He is as much at home fishing under a big sky as he is in a chic restaurant.  He is productive in any setting.  He plans, but he isn’t a slave to ritual; there is a keen sense of adventure that keeps him on the move.  As a Playboy reader, he responds to the advice the magazine provides, advice that makes him a winning competitor.


Artist Spotlight: Nate Karnes and ScaleFish Studio



Another round of Artist Spotlight brings us to Nate Karnes and Scalefish Studio.  Nate’s work encompasses not only some amazing pieces of Fish Art across multiple mediums, but also a few pigs.

Heads or Tails – Steam ‘Bow The second of two pieces for “Casting 4 A Cure.”

Nate’s blending of pigs and fish takes ‘catching a pig’ to a new level.  The recently released Pig Brown Trout Shirts are a hot commodity throughout social media.  You can purchase pigs individually or go big and start a pig farm with a herd of pigs.

Check out Nate’s work, pick up a pig brown or tarpon and give Nate a follow on Social Media (Links Below).

Artist Spotlight: Erin Erickson License Plate Design

Our ‘Artist Spotlight Series’ returns as the 2014 fishing season comes to a close in Alaska.  This Fall and Winter we hope to introduce you to some new faces as well as give you some updates on our favorite artists who express the art of fly fishing. Screenshot 2014-09-25 08.10.41

We travel to Hawaii to introduce you to Erin Erickson and her knack for making old license plates come to life.  Erin can knock out pretty much anything you can spell.  For us, this meant ‘Fly Shop’, pretty much our favorite combination of words.
