Tightlines Fly Fishing Co. - Youtube Sensation!

Tight Lines Fly Fishing Company 
If you have visited an Outdoor or Fly Fishing show in the Midwest, surfed the web for fly gear or YouTube on how to cast a fly rod, tie a knot or fly - you more than likely came across Tightlines Fly Fishing Company. Tim Landwehr owns and operates Tightlines Fly Fishing Co. in DePere, Wisconsin. It is the largest fly fishing shop in Northeast Wisconsin. I have seen Tim at numerous shows and like everything he offers to the sport of fly fishing. I discovered Tightlines Fly Shop on YouTube back in 2006 and have been following them since. Since he started on YouTube, they have over 4,000,000 views and 18,000 subscribers!

NIFTy Member Auction 2016

The NIFTy auction took place last week. There were some very nice donations received by companies and club members. Thanks to everyone who participated in this event. It was a good time shared by all.


DuPage Fly Fishing Co - Blackwater Fly Fishing Event

A few weeks ago NIFTy members Mark LoVerde and Jim Gould went to DuPage Fly Fishing Co. in Naperville to check out Blackwater Fly Fishing's presentation on fly fishing the Wisconsin River. Abe Downs (Blackwater Fly Fishing Owner) was tied flies and then gave a presentation about the amazing fishery they guide on. Abe provided Point Beer from his sponsor, which we enjoyed. Mark, Jim and three other members of NIFTy recently booked a guided trip with Abe to float down the Wisconsin river to chase Smallmouth Bass in June. Mark and Jim attended this event to see and hear more about Blackwater Fly Fishing and the Wisconsin River fishery near Stephens Point, Wisconsin. It was educational and everyone had a great time.
