Remember back when Montana Fly Company teamed up with OBN for a an awesome gear opportunity? (I know, happened more than once, and will probably happen again. The crowd at MFC are very generous.) Well, I was fortunate enough to be selected to try out the goods and give my thoughts. In yesterday's mail, the goods came. And man, are they good.
Pictured above are MFC's double ceramic tipped bobbin, all-purpose scissors, stacker, and fly box (all with their signature, stunning River Camo) as well as three varieties of tying thread.
Now, I happen to be a bit busy this coming week, so I'm calling this my "planning week." I have a trip in April to the Big Horn River in Montana and I'll need to fill the box, best I can, with the basics for that trip.
I've settled on BWOs, scuds, and midges. Now I need recipes. If you have any suggestions on sizes, or variations in color for the scuds, I'd love to hear the suggestions.
After the planning, I'll get to tying and give you all my official review including more details on the equipment.
My first impression is pretty straight forward: This is high quality tying gear with a stunning design that reminds you what you are working towards.
