Flies.

Flies.    Since the beginning of Tennessee Fly Company, it was always the goal to offer flies. I mean, it’s a fly company right? We would get messages and feedback all the time about it.    “Do you sell flies?”   “wait, you’re a fly company and don’t sell flies?”   “where’s the flies?”   You get the point.    During this year, we will be going through some changes. We have always offered awesome apparel for the fly angler, and we will continue to do that! That’s what we are good at so of course we will keep it up.    Starting next week, we will begin rolling out flies. Specifically streamers at first, followed by nymphs and dry...

The (Trout)South will rise again!

It's been awhile. The Troutsouth collection has been a staple of the TNFLYCO line for some time. Back in the fall, we ordered multiple hats. They all came in and we started selling some of the green ones. As I got further into the inventory, I noticed that some weren't perfect. There was a small line where the embroidery missed. It was concerning enough that I pulled all of them off the store.  To solve the problem, I ordered patches. These were ordered back in September. Through a series of miscommunication, I finally have the patches. My goal is to have these patched and ready to sell in less than two weeks. Just in time for Christmas! So if you've...

Consistency

Consistency is key.  This is a saying that's been around forever. Since I took over TNFLYCO, a common theme keeps emerging. Consistency in sizing.  In the early stages of this business, shirts were purchased from multiple different places. Local printing shops, online shops and start ups. All these businesses have a brand or two that they use almost all the time. Unfortunately, it was usually different brands. When we ordered a shirt from a local place, it would vary differently from an online place and vice versa. I get emails and messages regularly enough that I felt the need to address this issue. Most of these messages say something like "I bought a shirt two years ago and the one...

Remember when...

I can hear it now. You are telling your grandkids about the best fishery in this state. The river where you caught your biggest fish. The river where you spent as much time as possible fishing. As you are telling the story, you transport back to the cool mornings you would spend in waist deep cold water. As the years went on, you needed more layers but you still were out there. Cool fog, hot coffee in a thermos, numb toes and telling yourself you don't have to pee right now. You are imagining your fly cast while you recreate this story when your grandkid interrupts you and ask, "what happened to the river?" A few years ago, Tennessee anglers...

5 Things you didn't know you needed!

Sometimes you come across an item that makes your life so much easier, you wonder how you lived without it. Examples of these would be cell phones, internet, netflix and the ability to order anything you want without leaving your house. While there are obvious items in fly fishing that make your life easier, these next 5 products you may have not seen yet or maybe haven't thought about using them.      1. Air Lock indicators. Basically, they took a thingamabobber and made it better. These little guys (available in 4 sizes) all adjust from a little screw and washer. Once you have the indicator on, it takes just seconds to loosen the screw and adjust depth. Once you are...
