I’ve been a fan of the Scagit Master franchise since I viewed the first clip and have been enjoying the great scenery and precision casting, but mostly I’m in it for the big beastly looking flies. Not to be disappointed in the latest offering, there seems to be no shortage of fly glory and as demonstrated in the preview. I’m looking forward to the progression of the series and the flies.
Skagit Master 3 presents modern concepts in steelhead fly design. No single steelhead pattern is a silver bullet. Confidence in the fly you choose plays a major role in a fly’s success. But thinking beyond what you learned in the “how to” books of the past often results in some cool fly concepts. Skagit Master 3 presents a few modern patterns and the steelheaders who tie them: Hannah Belford, Tom Larimer, Eric Neufeld, Jeff Hickman, Ed Hepp and of course Scott Howell, Ed Ward and Jerry French.
