Capping off our second year with the December 2019 issue, which sees the first time all 5 of our options included into the Fly Guide! Going forward this may change, but we find it helpful for folks that may want to try out a different option as they progress through their membership. 

We are stoked to deliver these premium flies to anglers around the world, and we wish everyone a happy holiday season and fishy start to 2020!

See you next year!

Freestone Fly Guide - April

Freestone Fly Guide - April

April's subscription featured some excellent patterns, including a Blood Midge, Golden Stonefly, and Freshwater Scud (check out the Fly Guide for the full list of flies!). 

The Fly-Tying subscription featured the pattern of BC Fly Tyer Sean Chahley of @fly.culture. His pattern, Uncle's Favourite Ant, is a deadly dry fly when the terrestrial bugs start making their appearance. We're hoping to feature another one of Sean's flies in the near future.
