Tying Kendrick’s Bama Crab

Kendrick's Bama Crab is the bottom of the food chain for a redfish (that's a good thing).

Tying Kendrick’s Wooly Mantis

Kendrick's Wooly Mantis is a staple for clear water shrimp crushers. It was first tied up by our friend and shop tier Cory Kendrick.

Redington Grande Fly Reel Review

The new Redington Grande reel is Redington's best answer yet to the destructive forces of nature - mainly the salt and the power of the fish we need to stay connected to. The foundation of the equation is the fully machined aluminum frame and spool. This reel is going to hold up to time and [...]

Angel Silk Review

Everyone loves Polar Fiber for its movement, but its length limits how large of a fly you can tie with it. That was the main appeal in bringing in Angel Silk. It is a soft, silky fiber characteristically very similar to Polar Fiber but it is much longer (see the comparison in the video above). [...]
