Check out our interview on the Wet Fly Swing podcast. Hear more about how grunge music, the Air Force, growing up in Alaska, raising daughters, and adventuring on our local Fort Collins’ waters has influenced our company and the gear we make.

Stay at home shop sounds

Through the COVID-19 outbreak, stay-at-home orders meant working around family. In between runs of leatherwork and assembling bags, I was grabbing snacks for kids while they completed online school. Work-life integration was the name of the game. Here's a glimpse into that time.

How to wear our creel strap

Our creel strap makes it easy for you to access your fly fishing gear when you need it, and then keep it out of your way when you don't. Made of English bridle leather and brass components, the creel-style strap comes standard with all of our bags. Watch to learn more about why we love our strap, as well as how to connect it and use it properly.

OUR CRAFTSMANSHIP

Quality control front and center. 

We are not a big company. Only two sets of hands ever touch a product during the production process. From cutting canvas, to sewing and  all of the leather work. All done in house, by us. That means that we are intimately involved with everything that leaves our shop.

We believe in our products, and stand by our craftsmanship and materials.

Our Materials

Waxed Canvas

Used for over a century, waxed canvas has proven to be incredibly abrasion resistant, highly water repellent and patinas over time like leather.

English Bridle Leather

A fully finished, vegetable tanned leather, EBL is lightly stuffed with extra oils and waxed on the surface to add durability and water repellency. It breaks in well and develops a patina over time. 

Brass

More durable than plastic hardware, brass is corrosion resistant and looks better as it ages.

Testimonials

This is fantastic. FAR exceeded expectations, and mine were pretty high to begin with. I flyfish all the time, all over the country. I fished this bag for the first time today- awesome. The creel strap is a game changer. Keeps the bag in place when you need it to. Plenty of space, fine craftsmanship. Great internal pockets. 5 stars.

I could not get on here fast enough to write about this bag! Only fly fishing bag you'll ever need. Amazing quality and Chris is awesome to work with! The creel strap and net pocket is what makes this bag go from awesome to incredible. Simple and thought out designs allows us to just simply worry about fishing. You won't be disappointed.

This is an outstanding well built fishing bag, I love it. You could not find a better guy to deal with than Chris. I had a little something extra done to the bag and Chris stayed in contact with me through the entire process. This bag will last me a life time and well after I am gone. If you are looking for a great fly fishing bag, look no farther, because this is it.
