Field Testing the 3WT Demo

I took a recent trip up to North Georgia to do some "field testing" using the new demo 7.5' 3WT rod. The performance was great with only a few minor adjustments left to make.  Overall it was a great trip with a decent amount of wild rainbow trout caught.    

I look forward having this rod available for purchase in the next few months.

Fly Tying Instructions for Kevin's Stonefly (Video)

By: Matt Walters

This pattern is one of the first freshwater flies I learned and began tying with my good buddy and guide at Davidson River Outfitters, Ken Hardwick.  I love using this fly in my dropper rig especially during stonefly hatches and high water conditions.  This video, fly, and music represent a lot from my early days of fly fishing as I would fish all day and then go listen to Galen at the local bar with some fishing buddies.  Lots of great memories.  Pattern by: Kevin Howell

Below is the step by step video guide of how to tie this fly yourself.
