We just got in our very first shipment of Patagonia Sweet Fish Pack Vests this week. Almost everyone at the shop exclusively fishes with the old Patagonia Pack Vest and after several years of taking a break from their line they’ve reintroduced the new Sweet Fish Pack Vest. The backpack is much improved, and we still think this is the best fly fishing vest you’ll ever use. Whether your guiding or just the weekend angler, this vest is versatile.

Matt Drahos of Western Rivers shows you 3 of his favorite winter fly patterns that take less than 2 minuets to tie. He’ll show you how to tie his Griffiths gnat, Syls Midge soft hackle, and Zebra midge.
There are few belongings in fly-fishing equipment that capture the essence of fly-fishing more than a bamboo fly rod. Even given today’s incredible graphite fly rods they still fall short in matching the essence and beauty of a well crafted bamboo fly rod.
Glen Brackett has been a long time acquaintance of Western Rivers Flyfisher. It started almost two decades ago when we began carrying RL Winston fly rods. At that time he and his Boo Boys worked for this Montana fly rod company. Since then they’ve branched out on their own to form Sweetgrass Rods, which we are now proud to carry as part of our fly rod mix in the fly shop.
