Great Lakes Fly Shop
We got a chance to visit John Fehnel at the Great Lakes Fly Company in Duluth, Minnesota. Cool little shop and John is a great guy. John was right in the middle of moving, so the shop was kind of well....in boxes, but I can tell it is a great place.
I like the fact John includes bass and musky/pike fishermen in his mix. I picked up this fly at his shop and learned a very cool craft fur technique from John. This is a very simple fly, but it looks deadly. Craft fur is such a cool material! My version of this pattern is coming soon.
Make sure to hit the Great Lakes Fly Company when you are in Duluth. I hope to join John on a guided trip on the Saint Louis River in the spring of 2011.
