The date for the 2023 BMFS (Bob Mitchell’s Fly Shop) Gear Swap has been set, and it’s going to be Saturday April 29, 2023. There’s always a big turn out at the gear swap, and for good reason. It’s a fantastic place to find a great deal used gear. If you’re just getting started in fly fishing, this is a great starting place to acquire some gear of your own. The shop also has some items on sale, as well.
Recently, I started helping edit Youtube videos for Josh Stevenson of Mighty Musky Guide Service. Josh is an exceptional fisherman, and his experience backs that up. He is also the Owner of Blue Ribbon Bait & Tackle in Oakdale, Minnesota which is right outside of Saint Paul. I’m really excited to be working with Josh to get his past seasons videos out, but I’m even more excited to get out on the water with him and create some fun and educational content for his viewers.
The first Bob Mitchell’s Fly Shop Fly Fishing College class of 2021 is in the books, and we had such a great group!

It’s a great course for anyone who is brand new or curious about learning to fly fish.
