Are you feeling the winter blues? Are you dreaming of warmer days and the return of fishing season? Trust me, I know the feeling. But fear not, because spring is just around the corner, and it's time to start thinking about getting back on the water!

One of my favourite things about fishing is the preparation that goes into it. As the winter months tick by, I spend my time filling up my fly wallets with carefully tied flies, each one chosen for its specific purpose and crafted with care. And as I work, I'm surrounded by the smell and vintage look of leather, a material that has become for me synonymous with the fishing lifestyle.

I know that leather is often a concern when it comes to water, but let me tell you, it's like a good old pair of leather boots. You can apply wax or conditioner to refresh it, but as it ages, it only looks better and better. So don't worry about getting your leather gear wet - it's all part of the adventure! 

Be ready for next season by checking out our fly tying tutorials and wide range of handcrafted, heirloom quality gear that is built to last. We have everything you need to make your next fishing trip a success.

Don't let the winter blues get you down, my fellow angler. Spring is almost here you'll be back on the water before you know it!

Tight lines, my friends.
