New Web Site Launches

Pink Salmon are such a blast on flies and light rods.  This fish was taken on a light 6-weight Spey rod while swinging flies just like you would for steelhead.

Sorry we haven’t had a recent blog report posted in a while but we’ve been very busy. After many months of work, we have finally launched the new version of our website and catalog. Nice job by Peter, PFF’s in-house web guru, for making this new site way more technically advanced, better looking, and much more interesting.

You will hopefully notice many new features on the new site and a ton of new functionality in the catalog… such as wish lists, online gift certificates, (optional) user account creation and maintenance, and much more.

One of the coolest new features is our new Trade-In Program “toolbox” where users can create an account, then send us used fly fishing equipment, and then we will sell it and send back a gift card for the amount their used products sold for. How easy is that? Whether you live down the street or in Maine, this is an easy way to take advantage of a very popular program and get new gear!! Here is how to get more info and get started.

I found a large, wide flat on Skagit with a soft current where the pink salmon would slowly migrate their way through the flat in three or four feet of water.  Wading carefully, I could get close enough to the fish to sight fish for them, watching them take the fly.  It was a ton of fun and very educational to see how fish would react to the action of the fly.

Small pink flies with lots of movement, weighted, and a bit of flash seem to be the best patterns for the pinks.  This fly has been a killer for me over the last few humpy years and is now available from Pacific Fly Fishers.  It is called the Humpy Bug.

Well, we haven’t been working all the time. In the last couple months, I’ve been fishing for redfish in New Orleans, up to the Skeena for steelhead (despite dirty water and barely getting to fish), smallmouth fishing on local lakes, and having a ton of fun on the Skagit for pinks… oh yeah, and some trout fishing in lakes too. Ben has been guiding his butt off on Puget Sound, taking his new boat out, and targeting pinks and silvers in the salt on his few days off. Joe has been guiding for pinks in the local rivers and now steelhead in E. Washington. Peter doesn’t fish (yet) but he has hiked half of the Cascade Mountain Range in just the last few months. (He hikes a lot!).

Let us know if you have any comments on the new web site. We would love to hear your feedback.

Best Regards and Good Fishing,

Michael
