Alaska's Premier Fly Fishing Source

The Perfect Gift For Him & Her - 2018 Edition

Holiday shopping for fly anglers can be a tricky thing. For most fly anglers, we have all the funny gadgets and gizmos already... so, what do you get that special someone for the holidays? We have compiled a list of fly shop approved, fly angler loved products to help you along in your festive journey. Whether you are shopping for your loved one, a distant relative, or just a friend... these items are sure to please any angler this season. 


When you think of the Plan D fly box, think Dolly Llama, String Leech, Flesh, and Intruder flies…. This style box is the best in the industry to organize strung-out style flies without them getting tangled through your adventures. Simply slip the eye of the hook over one of the stainless-steel hooks in the box and then insert the hook bend in the slotted foam. It keeps your flies organized and stretched out straight until they are read to fish.

- $549.95

This combo is hands down our most popular selling rod package in the shop. First, the Echo Boost rod is a fast action rod which is easily castable for both beginning and experienced fly casters. Next, we choose the Lamson Guru reel, which is made of solid machined aluminum and has a solid drag for all of the blistering runs you may encounter while salmon and steelhead fishing. We tie the package together with the Rio Grand fly line, which is a great line for throwing big flies, roll casting, and bombing long casts. This package is also available in a trout size range.


We catch ourselves thinking every year… What should I do with my old ratty fly lines? Well, the Fly vines company finally figured it out! This Fly vines dog leash is made of recycled spey lines, which make them durable, and have just the slightest bit of stretch. Whether you are running beaches or rivers, this is the perfect accessory for your loyal dog companion.

The Dolly Llama is easily one of the most fished fly patterns in Alaska. We got so many people asking us over the years for fly instructions on this fly, we decided to make it super simple for you.

The pack fits well, and has great support whether you are hiking around in the muskeg, or floating down the Good News.


Ladies, (and gents) … if you like to catch fish then why not show it off with this bitchin’ trucker cap made by Rods Reels and Heels?
