From RIO Products:
RIO Products, industry-leading manufacturer of fly lines, leaders and tippet material, offers anglers an easy casting switch line to effortlessly throw streamers, indicators and sink tips.
RIO’s new Switch Chucker is an extremely easy-casting, super-powerful line with a short, 25-foot long head and a thick handling section behind the head to allow for effective mending and fly control. The line is designed specifically for switch rods and to cast large flies, sink tips and indicators with the utmost of ease. The short head makes this line the very best choice when fishing in close quarters, on smaller rivers and for casters who are just learning to use switch rods.
Using RIO’s AgentX and Extreme Slickness technologies, the Switch Chucker glides through the guides smoothly, and the front loop makes rigging sink tips a breeze. The Dual Tone gray/green line helps casters know when to pick up the line to cast again.
Available from four-weight through Continue reading
From Boulder Boat Works:
After 12 years of building the world’s greatest drift boats in the city of Boulder, we have moved to Longmont, CO (10 miles and a world away from our last shop in Boulder). Manufacturing space has become increasingly hard to find within the bubble that is Boulder. Greedy realtors, a city hell bent on ridding its self of manufacturing jobs, and large expanses of “open space” closed to all use spelled the end of our time in Boulder. So, when the last building we were leasing sold and we were given 40 days to find a new space, it became obvious that the People’s Republic of Boulder would rather have gift shops selling overpriced imported paperweights and yoga mats than have businesses that actually manufacture something and offer real jobs.
We are thrilled with our new space in Longmont and to be able to more than triple our shop space while keeping our rent the same. That all adds up to more boats being produced for less money and a savings that will allow us to keep our boats more affordable for you, our valued customers. Please stop in and visit our new shop when you are in the area.
