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.

Few Different Pics

First need to apologize for the lack on content, nothing but excuses but hope to find some time and create some interesting content in the coming weeks.  Here are a few images to help scratch the itch.

Kean hunting his first Pike on the fly, it was pretty exciting to watch this predator hunt down our dying bait fish pattern.  Using the Scientific Anglers Intermediate Titan Taper with a Essox Leader we had a few chances at Pike and caught multiple nice smallmouth bass on the Manistee River this past weekend.

Jerome joined me for a day time adventure and scored some really nice trout on dry flies, Jerome has to believe in the good luck his new Mangled Fly hat provided him.  Great day Jerome and impressive trout on the dry fly during the day.

Had a chance to spend a few days along the west coast on a family vacation and shot this sunset picture. Always impressed by the size of Lake Michigan and how much it reminds me of the east coast.  Just missing a little bit of salt.

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.

Aaron Keefe sent in this photo of the Mangled Fly Zip-Up Hoodie getting the attention of a few Little Black Stones.  Thanks for sharing this pic Aaron.  This is a great time of year for this sweatshirt.  With morning temps usually a little chilly, nice to have a little extra layer.  One of the softest most comfortable sweatshirts I own.
