When I run out of good YouTube fishing videos to watch during these winter doldrums, I turn to my ever growing pile of fly tying and fishing gear catalogs on my desk.


All are filled with lots of expensive eye candy, but the one retailer I really like is J Stockard. Their catalog is filled with every type and style of things a fly tier and fisherman could ever want. I appreciate the extra details, like a 15 page chart of different hook styles with pictures and explanations of their applications. And a thread chart that explains the varying standards for thickness and strengths of each manufacturer and type.

Unfortunately the USPS decided to run this years catalog through their shredder. Tried ordering another one, but they managed to lose that. Go figure.

What's your favorite online retailer or catalog?

Your mail carrier probably figured they'd try to avoid a back injury 😋.

I've been ogling Big Y a bunch the last week or so and getting an order together for a potential trip to Rainy Lake this summer.
