On The Water with Mississippi

Mississippi, Matt and his brown and Banning on some field testing Friday

YOU might think from some of the content on here that the crew around the shop spend all our water time together. Ask that is the shop and your likely to be met with raucous laughter.

What we end up with are snatched moments here and there, an afternoon or evening. They also happen to be a hell of a lot of fun

Friday I climbed aboard head guide Chad “Mississippi” Johnson’s river boat, with his fishermen our TFO/Umpqua/Howler rep and buddy Banning Collins and Umpqua tyer Matt Bennett who were in town on some meetings. I wanted some new pics for our revamped website.

Fun afternoon including Matt’s biggest brown trout to date. Hope you enjoy the pics
