Steelhead Alley Fishing Report 11/15-11/17

          So this weekend Nick, Louis, and I (Alex) got up to do some steelhead fishing.  We had been trying to schedule a trip for a while and the stars finally aligned and our schedules matched.  Nick and Louis both hooked into their first steelhead.  It was a pretty cool sight and I think it's safe to say that they are now addicted too.

Gear Review: Filson Mesh Strap Vest #16022

         I have been using this hunting vest for a about three seasons at this point.  It has been a great and versatile product.  I think it is one of the most popular hunting vests we sell.

Brookville Fishing Report 11/13/14

          I had the opportunity to get over to Brookville Tailwaters yesterday and do some fishing.  Water was very high at 4.5ft and it was pretty chilly at 27 F and snowing.  The fish were there though.

Crazy flows. Water was ripping downstream.

Shags Run 11/11/14

       I enjoyed my day off today down at Shags Run.  Rye and I did pretty good.  She is coming along nicely after several months of rest and maturing.  I only had a few birds put out.  We ended the day with a few quail, a nice cock pheasant and a chukar.  I hunted the morning period so I could beat the rain and wind.  The cover is still a bit thick, but it looks great and is very workable.

Woodcock hunting

I walked the Ohio woods yesterday with a hunting buddy in search of woodcock.  The morning was cool, overcast and just a bit of rain.  We flushed ten birds and bagged three.  The cover was very thick and my years of grouse hunting have taught me to shoot quick and instinctively if you even want to think about bagging a bird.

Simms Windstopper Fleece is Back!!

    We are very excited to bring back the Simms Windstopper fleece. Years ago this was a shop favorite. It was a favorite for those who wanted a performance fleece with a different look than Patagonia. It is also a great layering piece since it is fairly thin and weatherproof.
