Water levels are an enormously important factor in steelheading success.  This site allows you to check the river you plan to fish or one in the vicinity to get an idea of the condition of your target river.

Islander Reels

Invest in a world-class reel.  Not only will your Islander handle any thing you can throw at it for eons, it also has a Fly fishing Fantasies approved clicker—we love to hear ‘em scream.

Rio Lines

For the best in fly lines, leaders, tippets, and accessories.  Rio lines were responsible for 12 fish hooked and 9 landed in a single day of filming during 2010—see our teaser for proof.
