Saltwater Fly Fishing

“There are always greater fish than you have caught, always the lure of greater task and achievement, always the inspiration to seek, to endure, to find, always the beauty of the lonely stream and open sea, always the glory and dream of nature.” Tales of the Anglers’ El Dorado, Zane Grey

"Time is probably more generous to an angler than to any other individual. The wind, the sun, the open air, the colors and smells, the loneliness of the sea or the solitude of the stream, work some kind of magic." The First Thousand Pounder. Zane Grey

Beast & Beast Jr. fly box
There are anglers out there, like us, who like to throw meat (big flies). Big flies catch big fish, but the problem is, "How do you store them?" We have the answer. The Beast Series uses the same time-tested, hook gripping, slotted blue material as our infamous Bugger Barn. If you are at the stage where you have accumulated and want to organize lots of big flies, we've got the box for you. Cliff's Bugger Beast is 13.5" X 9" X 3". The Beast Jr. is 10" X 6.5" X 2.75". the question is, "How much meat are you going to pack?"
American Angler "KA-CHING" Award Winner for 2007!

Cliff FLOAT PATCH - Perfect for any Kayak, Canoe, Flats Boat!
These are just the ticket for canoes, kayaks, float tubes and boats. Guide-tested, the Float patch adheres to any flat spot, and in the wind it holds onto your flies like a bulldog. Think were kidding? It's held onto flies while dragging a drift boat at speeds in excess of 90 mph on Wyoming Highway 220. Small flies go on the stout magnet, and larger patterns are held securely in the slots. The Float Patch™ is handy as hell, it works, and you're going to wonder how you got along without it. Float Patch $9.95     $7.50

Like there Nippas, we put this in the category of Why Didn't Someone Think of This Before.. And just like with the rubber coated Nippas, we are glad they didn't.

Here's how the Rising 4" Diamond Hook File is better than any other:
1. Double grooves on MD grit side (800 grit) and a single on the fine (600 grit) side. Anglers only use the grooves to sharpen their hooks (the flat section is for knives) so by using two grooves on the available space we increased the longevity and use fullness of the sharpener.
2. Rounded Edges to reduce wear on pockets when file is stored. This is a nice feature!
3. Extended Rubber grip to increase comfort and ease of use when sharpening.
4. Bright red rubber and yellow leash - make it easy to find.

Weight: .65oz Handle Colors: Red
$10.00    $8.00

Very easy to use state-of-the-art diamond sharpening stone creates a needle sharp hook point each time. Makes your dull or inexpensive hooks razor-sharp! Sharp hooks catch more fish. For hook sizes 12 thru 4/0. $12.95    $10.36

Made of high quality stainless steel. A great way to tie a perfect nail knot every time. Includes instructions.  
Standard  $6.59

Saltwater $6.95   

BlueSky Furled Leaders have been tested in every saltwater condition and location. When casting into a head wind or side wind, the furled leader will drive the tippet and fly to the target with authority. BlueSky leaders turnover so smoothly you can even cast them by hand. Plus, each furled leader attaches using the no knot loop-to-loop method, this means you can quickly switch to another BlueSky leader in seconds.

  • Titanium tippet leader for toothy fish such as barracuda, pike, musky and others. Provides superior casting, turnover and overstrike protection - high stretch and recovery. Ten inches of kink resistant medical grade Titanium with DuoLoc snap gives you high durability and toughness and maximum corrosion resistance while cutting through the weeds. For 7wt and heavier 20lb Breaking Strain. (Length 6ft. 6in.)  $14.95    $11.96
  • Six-Plus Saltwater leaders with tippet strengths of 10 lb., 12 lb., 15 lb., and 20 lb. (Length 9ft. with tippet - just tie on a fly and it's ready to go! There is also enough material to construct a small Bimini, spider hitch, or other style of loop. For an even longer leader, simply add tippet or trim back to desired length for a shorter leader.)   $13.95    $11.16

The name says it all! A unique must have fly tying accessory. Keeps you organized and your tying efficient. Use the hook and hackle gauges to keep the sizes right. Hook sizes from 4 to 24, hackle sizes 4 to 22. The magnetic work surface keeps your hooks handy and out of the mess. To attach to your vise, simply slide the vise shaft into the hole and adjust the height. Slide the o-ring onto the shaft to keep it in place. To remove, reverse the process.
