Swing Fly Trucker Hat

New Mangled Fly Swing Trucker Hat , currently on “pre-buy” status but expecting this hat next week (October 13th), just in time for Steelhead Season.  Also working on a Wax Cotton edition that IO’m excited about, that I’ll be posting soon.  Get one of these hats while they last.  Same Trucker hat as the popular (1 left in Black, 4 left in Red) Dry Fly Trucker Hat we released this summer.

Thank you for your continued support and hoping this hat has the good luck charms of some of our other hats.  For all those that are superstitious as I am about “good luck” hats.  I’ve been liking the looks of this hat, and with some of the reports about steelhead (all good reports) can’t wait for this fall.

Fly Tying Details – Pic of the Day

Ed McCoy is one of the best fly tiers and I’ve had the opportunity to spend many of sessions watching him master his craft.  Erik Rambo captured this picture of Ed tying flies and as usual paying extra attention to the little details.

Fish “whats for dinner” – Pic of the Day

Captured this Great Blue Heron with a little bullhead snack. Trying to do my best Kevin Feenstra imitation. Kevin has always captured the best Blue Heron eating pictures.  While this is not to his standards I’ll take it, for my first try.

All you can eat bullheads today for Mr. Blue Heron. #getoutside #puremichigan #allucaneat

Tying Flies – Pic of the Day

Mangled Fly contributor Erik Rambo captures Ed McCoy tying big flies late at night. Something about the process of tying a new fly for the next day, that gives the angler more confidence. Taking what you have learned from the previous day and implementing that knowledge. Ed McCoy is a master at this craft.

Same line new name – Freightliner Skagit

Same great line (with a few minor changes) but with a new name.  SA launches the Freightliner Skagit, which is the same line from the past few years that we have been using.  The blue line as we called it in the boat.  The Intermediate Skagit gets a new name and a much requested cosmetic improvement , the rear loop will now have a black highlight to help you see the transition from the head to the running line.

New video from SA feature SA Ambassador Jeff Hickman.

We wanted to completely re-work our Spey offerings, and we started with our Skagit heads. Meet the Freightliner Skagit, an all-new design for Scientific Anglers. Featuring a textured, black marker at the rear of the head, and available in both floating and intermediate heads/kits, the Freightliner will become your next go-to Spey line. SA Ambassador Jeff Hickman dives into the details in this short video.
