“Demo-fishing” the newest high-tech rods and reels such as Sage, Orvis,
Water Works, Lamson, Thomas & Thomas and Royal Wulff products. During our
2001-2 “Ultra-Lite” Tour, our mission was to introduce these amazingly
efficient super light 0-1-2 weight fly rods to guides and fly shop owners,
and of course educate trophy trout on their home waters. As a result of
“fishing with the pro’s” on numerous top rivers in America, and targeting
only large challenging fish—we were quick to realize that we, in fact,
were the ones that were getting educated.
Hundreds of big, smart, trophy trout taught
us a “thing or two”. This tutorial introduction of controversial new

is pioneering the “world of fly

fishing industry has been substantially inhibited due to presumption
and tradition. PFF has recognized and mandated the need for change.
“Technique & Technology” is now “State of
the Art” … but most fly fishers have not been given the opportunity to
enter this exciting new dimension. Through our PFF Instructor
Certification, Guide / Outfitter Endorsement programs, Lodge Endorsement,
and PFF Schools & Clinics … we can now offer any fly fisher the “highest
quality” of instruction and adventure.
Fly Fishing is truly
about the rational use or our natural resources—preservation of our
environment—appreciation of our flora and fauna—the riverine places of
sanctuary for our own souls—and the latitude of intense focus, or just
enthusiastically invites you to
“passion and pursuit”.
