Our mission begins with the question of “how?” How do we make fly fishing better? Successful Fly fishing has always been and always will be about gathering information to make the best decisions while on the water. Knowledge that used to take decades to acquire is now only a few keystrokes away. But navigating a keyboard won’t make you a good angler. The best anglers are both curious and observant. They’re creative in solving problems while fishing. The best anglers have always been mavericks. Our mission is to design products for those anglers.

“The Stinger is a hybrid approach to fly fishing. It combines European Nymphing, Japanese Tenkara, and western fly fishing techniques. It's a radical shift in a sport that hasn’t changed much in decades. Be a part of the hybrid movement.”
