With the storms going north and south of Durango, the Animas continues to offer easy access and decent fishing weather permitting for a local fishing fix. And, the San Juan Quality Water below Navajo Dam is still fishing well. The recent work to improve habitat in the braids area has been an unqualified success with a significant increase in holding areas for anglers to spread out. As usual, midges are the bugs of choice along with the red analid. Winter is a great time to fish wooly buggers and leeches, either black or olive. As usual, check in with us for the latest in what’s happening on the Juan.
Fly tying lessons are starting this month. The first session is Jan. 12,13, 17 & 19. The class is a full eight hours of lessons for $100 and we furnish everything! These cold winter nights are great for cranking out your flies for the upcoming season. Come in or give us a call to sign up. Class size is limited to 6.
Need to get away from the cold for a fishing fix? We still have a few spots on the Andros, Bahamas bonefishing trip. This was a great trip in 2011 and should be equally good this year.
We continue to have men’s and women’s clothing on sale as well as a selection of wading boots and men’s and women’s waders. In addition, the Sage Xi2 and Scott S3S saltwater fly rods are on sale along with selected Sage and Lamson fly reels.
