Trout Skin & Chicago FlyFishing Outfiters

 Here is a small fly and trout skin.  I have been working on a commissioned work lately that has involved a lot of rainbow trout skin.  Here is a study I did for this work and then added a fly just as a doodle.

Also, If you are like me, I have lost all the good fly fishing shops that use to be close to me and have come to rely on the Internet for my fly fishing needs.  Unfortunately the big box stores have put alot of these smaller stores out of business so I am going to focus on a few smaller type shops I have found online.  I tend to like the independent stores more than the big box stores and support them whenever I can.
The first I am going to spot light is Chifly.com It is an expansive online store with some great deals and a large selection of gear.  As a native of Illinois I have a special connection to the fishing world of the Midwest.  Like the south, bass and bluegill are found at every turn but If you like trout and salmon, there are a great many streams just north of the city that are loaded.  If you get a chance, stop by Chifly.com and check out their selection.
