Farewell, Sweaty Waders. Hello, The Fly Zone (We’ve Moved)

Fly ZoneHere at Sweetwater Fly Shop, we’ve got a fancy new website that we’re very proud of. In order to consolidate our efforts and make things more efficient, we’re now posting our blog posts directly to our website, instead of on this Sweaty Waders blog page. To see our most recent reviews, features, tips & techniques, etc…, click on the “Fly Zone” tab at the top of the new web page (or click here to go there directly). Please bookmark our site for future reference. Thanks!

Next Stop, Hollywood?

For the 3rd year in a row, Simms chose to highlight one of Sweetwater Fly Shop’s own in their annual Ice Out Shoot Out short film competition. This year, the spotlight was on Tony V., one of the finest guides around, if we do say so ourselves. Check it out.

As if that wasn’t enough, Sweetwater outfitter and guide Charlie Conn scored himself a supporting role in one of the other films. Or should I say roles. Love the shorts, Charlie!

It’s A Keeper!

Congratulations to Sweetwater Travel’s Christi Grabowski and her husband, Sweetwater guide Dan Grabowski! They (finally) welcomed a new baby girl, Betsy Susannah, into the world last night. Mother and baby (and father, presumably) are doing fine. 7.1 pounds and 19 1/2 inches – a catch that would make anyone proud. No word on whether she arrived with a fly rod in her hand. We wish them all the best in their new adventure.

Can’t Fish? At Least You Can Get Some Free Food!

With the Yellowstone currently around 17,000 cfs and other local rivers following suit, fishing opportunities are going to be limited for the next couple of weeks. What’s the fishing-obsessed to do? How about joining us at Sweetwater Fly Shop next Saturday, June 9th, for our first annual Blowout Bash. We will have manufacturers’ reps from Sage, Winston, Simms, Redington, Ross Reels, and Sweetgrass Bamboo Fly Rods on hand with the newest rods and gear to demo. You can also take advantage of 20% off everything in the store (except fly rods) for one day only. There will be door prizes, free burgers and brawts, and casting instruction for the kids. The festivities run from 11 a.m. – 3 p.m.; we hope to see you there!

Floating is Fun!

The more things change…

There’s a new face around the shop (mine). As a newbie to the business (in more ways than one), I’ll be occasionally adding my perspective to the mix. Whether you want it or not.

Stay tuned….

“Check? Who brought what check?” Just another day in the life of Betty DePuy, forever captured by one of the world’s hardest working guides, Aaron Hansen. Them’s some serious camera skills, Arronn.
