-How you can utilize these various styles with your current 9ft single handed rod.

Sunday we will be leaving the shop at 12PM and heading out to some local water to practice and learn basic switch and spey casts.  We will bring as many of these rods as we can, but your standard set-up will work for the this as well.  If you would like to get set-up with a line, rod, reel (or all the above) come before 12 or talk to us on Saturday and we will be happy to help you.  For those fishing on the Reef in April or May….we urge you to attend!  What You Will Learn

He will be heading out Monday and not returning until May 9th. Through the month, He will be providing daily reports from Da Reef! Until May James is running the ship for the month.  That means you can expect a clean, well stocked fly shop and a store that opens promptly at 10…not 10:05ish lol.
