A huge bull trout for a young angler! Ashton caught this on an Articulated Leech in a secret locale.
Greg caught this nice cutthroat on a dry fly on the infamous Blackfoot River in Montana.
Jackson caaught this great brown trout from a favorite location on the SF Snake in Idaho.  Those Snake River trout love a good hopper pattern! 
Omar caught this healthy brook trout.  I don't know where, but I do know they don't grow them that big around here!


8/13/2020  "I stopped at the West Walker river in the Eastern Sierras, CA where I fished for about 2 hours with a 4 wt bamboo rod and landed two rainbows and then I got up to a flat water area with some boulders and pools. I cast Big Y Fly flies, a dry dropper of a size 10 stimulator and a 15in dropper of a size 18 flashback beadhead pheasant tail. Right at the corner of the rock where the water rushed around the tip in about 3-4' of water a leviathan of a brown trout came out from the depths and hammered my nymph! He came out of the water 2 times. It took about 5 minutes and 3 missed attempts to net the brown, to land him. He measured at 20 in and probably weighted about 3-4 lbs. BOY that was cool!!. Thanks Big Y Fly for providing well tied and economical flies that fooled this large Brown!! Thanks again. FUN trip." Michael J. Bone
8/13/2020  "Big Y Fly Co., You guys are awesome.  Just got my shipment in yesterday and yet again, the quality of craftsmanship did not disappoint! As this pandemic continues and just recently having a child, my wife and I have been spending more time shopping online.  With that being said, you guys are the only ones that have produced a letter in the package to explains why things may be running a bit behind. Although my flies arrived on time, it was very much appreciated by me. I'm going to brag on your flies now.  Being that I live in southeastern North Carolina I do not get to trout fish as much as I like but in the meantime I fly fish large lakes and ponds.  It is just about a nightly routine during the week for us to go to our local park. While my wife exercises, she leaves me on the bank of the pond to fish.  I am going on 2 months using the same Adams size 12 fly I purchased from you guys last year.  I have easily caught 100 fish on that one fly, species including brim, bass, shad, and war-mouth.  The fly, though needing hook resharpening, has yet to unravel or come apart.  I have spent 3 times as much money on a fly from other fly shops that have fallen apart the same day.  Its not often that I see another fly fisherman down my way but when I do, I brag on Big Y Fly Co.  Your friend from Lake Waccamaw," - Drew
8/11/2020  "You guys are awesome!  Had a fabulous day of fishing last Friday, but ran out of the flies they were going for, so when I got home about 10:00 pm I decided to place an order with Big Y.  I was stunned to find my order in the mail monday afternoon.  Going again tomorrow because of your speedy order processing.  Thanks, you made my day." - Richard
8/10/2020  "Today I received my Orvis 7wt 9’0” rod in the mail, and let me start off by saying WoW, BIG Y FLY company not only delivered my new rod and reel; but also left a nice personal touch with handwritten specs as well as a useful tip of applying Ferrule Wax, but also taking it a step further and providing me with the Wax for free with directions. BIG Y FLY company did more for me with this Orvis Combo then, the actual Orvis Store did on my 1st purchase through Orvis. To all the Guys and Gals at BIG Y, a big THANK YOU for what you do. Make no mistake I’m changing brands to BIG Y FLY Company from here on out. You guys have earned a life long Customer. Thank you." - Sincerely, Mike Diaz Retired Senior Chief, U.S. Navy
8/9/2020  "I was completely surprised by how fast the boxes arrived.  I already have all my new flies and old ones reorganized and ready to go this week.  I just haven't picked a place yet. Thanks for the quick service." - Joe

These perdigons are a standard for me. They are built solid on nice hooks and they catch trout consistently. Smallmouth bass too. Pretty much always on my point.

I recently took this reel up to Alaska sockeye fishing and it performed flawlessly. Pros: -Look- this reel just looks badass.-Sealed drag and aircraft aluminum construction- this reel can handle freshwater and salt -handle- I like a bigger grippier handle. I want to be able to grab it without looking and not let my fingers slip off if it. -weight- perfectly balanced large arbor reel with line capacity so you can load a switch or Spey line on it if you like. Cons-auto retrieves line- small issue. Mainly affects Spey fishing if you like to hold a loop while swinging. I have found that any little bump tends to turn/retrieve line onto the reel. Drag- touchy. There is a small sweet spot between loose and tight drag and I have found the drag can loosen with light bumps. This could be disastrous if it was worse in this aspect but it has never caused me to lose a fish or rats-nest my line. Overall:You can?t get a better hatch-like reel at this price. I love it!

disclaimer: did not purchase on big Y. But have been fishing this rod for about 3-4 years after fishing Cortland. It is just superb. Sensitive, casts eurorig very well, and it actually casts a dryfly line well too, so i keep a 3wt line instead of a nymphing line (cuz whats the use in a nymphing line anyway... 3 wt is light enuf and you can just extend your eurorig line anyway)... anyway. DON'T HESITATE! great company. great rod
