Brown Trout Sun Shirt

New Long Sleeve Coming Soon

Brown Trout Sun Shirt


Next week a New long sleeve Sun shirt will be hitting the store.  Thank you Kean Oh for letting us use one of your amazing drawings.  A beautiful Michigan Brown Trout on the back, in stunning 8 color design, with the Dry Fly Mangled Fly Logo on the front. Same Logo as our Dry Fly Hat that came out last week. This long sleeve shirt will be printed on one of the nicest Sun Shirts that I’ve ever worn.  The Long Sleeve Sun Shirt has been a staple of my day to day wardrobe since they first started coming out.  This particular one is made my Hanes and is the most comfortable one to date.  I’ll post another blog when they arrive but wanted to share the image. Limited addition so get them while they last.

Grass Carp

Bob H. sent in this great picture of his adventure with Blane Chocklett, Bob was hoping to muskie fish with Blane.  But with water so high Blane suggested that they go after Carp and Grass Carp on topwater with Cicada Patterns.  Bob had a great time and landed some impressive sized carp on the fly.  Bob thank you for the picture and support wearing the Mangled Fly Camo Hat.

Below is a video posted recently with more Highlights of what Blane does on the fly and the impressive amount of Cicadas currently invading his area.

Opening Weekend – Pic of the Day

Had a great Opening Trout weekend on the Upper Manistee River, some great dry fly action on Hendrickson’s and a few Caddis.  Steelhead rods have been put away.  Trout rods are the main focus, and smallmouth and pike rods are really close by.  I love the change of season’s, and look forward to chasing some great fish this spring.
