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 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.
