Reel Happiness: Messy Hair Stubborn Spirit

A Short Film Focused on Women Anglers in Southeast Alaska

Fly Fishing, Southeast Alaska, Women Anglers: Reel Happiness.  We are excited to support Kayla Roys and Sydney Akagi’s project focusing on women anglers in Southeast.

Kayla and Sydney’s team of Alaskan film producers and female anglers are currently applying to the Trout Unlimited F3T Fly Fishing Grant. This award amount is up to $15,000 that will go towards creating this film. To qualify for this grant we must first raise a percentage of the cost we are asking for, this is where the Kickstarter comes in!

If awarded this grant, the film will be on tour during the 2017 Trout Unlimited film tour to about 100 cities in the United States.

Although the initial goal has been reached, please consider adding additional support to Reel Happiness.  Your support of Alaskan projects not only encourages future projects, but also secures much needed additional funds to help make Reel Happiness a fantastic representation of Alaskan women anglers and will help to offset travel costs.16889a1f4d611b9bbfd3cef8ac443fe9_original

When you support Reel Happiness, you also receive a pretty snazzy Messy Hair Stubborn Spirit T-Shirt design, that by all means captures the spirit of all Alaskan women anglers.

May Fly of The Month: Hieronymus’ Clone

Clone, grey

 

The Clone is a significant name of value when it comes to salmon smolt.  Millions of Smolt begin their life’s journey by heading out to the high seas with their first big obstacle waiting patiently for them.  Terns Alaska Rainbows wait patiently for this migration to begin and when it does your pattern better be a clone.

You can find Hieronymus’ Clone at any of Umpqua Feather Merchants specialty retailers.

March Fly of the Month: Hieronymus’ Sitkoh Prince

Hieronymus’ Sitkoh Prince

When you show up to the dance on Friday night and you are surprised to find out that the crowd isn’t swinging to Brooks & Dun like you were expecting, there is only one thing to do, change those dance moves fast.

Just like your local dance party flavor, the King of Swing doesn’t always have the right moves for Alaskan waters.  As our Spring Steelhead season kicks off and you find yourself on that river 20 feet wide with low hanging shore brush, it is time to change up your moves.

Say hello to the Sitkoh Prince.  When the King of Swing goes to bed, the Prince gets all the Steelhead.

You can find Hieronymus’ Sitkoh Prince at any of Umpqua Feather Merchants specialty retailers.
