Phil Rowley and Brian Chan, two of North America’s most respected Stillwater fly fishers, are excited to announce the release of their long-awaited Stillwater Fly Fishing App. Phil and Brian have combined their 75 years of experience fly fishing for trout and char in lakes to develop this valuable educational tool.

Each topic is presented in video format that can be easily downloaded and saved to your mobile device.

Once downloaded, the video tips can be watched anywhere. No Wi-Fi connection is required to view the tips once they have been downloaded.

BELGRADE, Mont. – The age-old dilemma of fly tying thread breaking, becoming abraded or losing tension is now history with the development of new ultra-slick dual glass insert bobbins from Dr. Slick Instruments for Anglers.
