Author Don Kirk will be at Fly South
this Saturday, September 20th at 10:00am
to sign copies of his latest book,
Hatches & Fly Patterns of the Great Smoky Mountains
Focusing on the Great Smoky Mountains, America’s most-visited national park, this book is full of useful information for fly fishers curious to learn more about flies and fly patterns. The book is a full color volume showing over 100 patterns such as the Tellico Nymph, Thunderhead, Smoky Mountain Sugar and Yallarhammar, plus information on dozens of past and present day fly tiers around the Great Smoky Mountains. “Hatches and Fly Patterns of the Great Smoky Mountains is a long time effort on my part with the help of a lot of people to document the rich history of fly fishing in the South,” says Kirk. “There is a lot more we do not know about the history of fly fishing and fly patterns in the region. I hope this book triggers an avalanche of interest that motivates others to dig up the scattered pieces of history before they are forever lost.”
Hatches & Fly Patterns of the Great Smoky Mountains – $24.95

Unlike the standard hemostats that automatically lock the instant you close them, the new Abel Hybrid Hemostats feature a unique locking mechanism that only engages when you want it to. It utilizes a precision thumb lock on the top of the handle. Old fashioned “classic” hemostats can then be anything but simple to unlock – especially with cold, wet fingers while holding a slippery fish. But with the Hybrid Hemostat, it’s as easy as pulling a trigger to release the locking mechanism. A quick squeeze of the ergonomically designed handles or sliding back the sleek thumb lock is all that’s needed to unlock the jaws. The stainless steel jaws are not only designed for easy hook removal, but also pinching down even the tiniest of hook barbs – perfect for those who enjoy safely releasing a fish as much as catching it. These jaws are not only replaceable, but guaranteed for life. Made in USA. $150
