TRADE SHOW BOOTH + DIGITAL Outdoor Retailer Show Room Image, Winter 2014
The trade show season is underway! If you’re at the 2014 Outdoor Retailer Winter Show in Salt Lake City, be sure to swing by the Patagonia booth. I’m thrilled to have a wall hanger in the booth this year.
The new 2014 Women’s fly fishing line-up is currently being launched. While you’re wandering the showroom floor take a stroll over and check it out. Lots of research, testing, round tables, feedback, and effort went into this project and in constructing the entire new line-up. Patagonia works with some of the best women in the business, ones who get it done day in and day out. Together they have designed a new women’s line that is made by women for women. Yes, it’s backed by the company’s longtime standard, the Iron Clad Guarantee. It’s also made with forethought by using materials and technology that are environmentally responsible and sustainable, something every outdoor company should strive for and every outdoor enthusiast should insist.
ORVIS | ADVERTISMENTS Tiger Musky photo shoot in Utah
I spend a week fishing and shooting in Utah. The target specie was Tiger Musky, a mutant breed: Muskelunge x Northern Pike + test tube = Tiger Musky. These ferocious toothy fish are a blast to fish for. Over the years I’ve targeted a few areas using various methods. These are a fun fish to catch and you can use so many different types of methods to catch them. This particular trip we targeted them on the surface using patterns tied by none other than Brent Dawson of Warpath flies. Brent is a master tier and his specialty is large technical flies. No wonder anglers like Jeff Currier and Mikey Weir and travel companies such as Yellow Dog Flyfishing Adventures use his flies globally. Tested and approved. If you need flies give Brent a ring, you wont be disappointed.
