Gear Swap at BMFS

Bob Mitchell’s Fly Shop in Saint Paul had a gear swap.  There was a lot of cool stuff there.  There were also a bunch of cool people.  Here are some photos I took while I was there.

Outside of the shop.

Outside of the shop Patagonia was showing off their new wading boots, and then under the BMFS tent the grill was going and there were hot dogs and chips for all.

Steelhead Talk

There was a lot of fish talk going on, and in the photo above Mr. Sherlock was talking about steelhead, per usual.  He likes to toss an egg pattern first before using a streamer – I’m kidding.  That’s how you get him “triggered” haha :). 

Hot dogs and chips.

There was a lot of old gear that found new homes, and will find new fish.  There were so many fly rods this year! So many!

Inside the shop
The Legend – Wilderness Bill

The Man, The Myth, The Legend – Wilderness Bill made an appearance to the gear swap.  He’s known to wrestle Canadian gators in his sleep, and chug bottles of maple syrup by the gallons, and destroy Costco sized pizzas with 1 bite.

Wilderness Bill scores!

Wilderness Bill is also good at hunting down some seriously good deals!

 
Big thanks to Bob Mitchell’s Fly Shop for the hot dogs, and hosting a fun event!
