The Steel Canvas is off to Alaska

                                                               STEEL CANVAS

As a guide, I am always looking for that new or different fly pattern that will keep guests’ rods bent all day in any condition.  I am pleased to announce that in 2012 Tikchik Narrows Lodge guests will have the opportunity to fish some brand new patterns contributed by my good friend James Plant of the Steel Canvas. Head guide Chip King, Capt. Brandon Beebe, and I will be working with a few of these new patterns on the different rivers, lakes, and streams throughout the summer. In addition to being my friend, James is also a signature fly tier for Rainy's. I am really excited to see what he whips up next! 

Check out his Blogs. Just go to the links list on the left side of the page.
