    California's Sierra is known for its breathtaking views, amazing

    geology, and for its place in the frontiersman fabric of the United

    States. The region is also known for its healthy populations of

    resident trout.

    One of the legendary fly fishers and fly tyers

    in the Sierra is Ralph Cutter, and his E/C Caddis, originally

    introduced in 1981, has become one of the world's most effective caddis

    emerger imitations ever tied. Cutter modeled the fly after the classic

    Elk Hair Caddis, but designed it to sit lower in the surface film by

    including a parachute style wing post. He further improved the fly by

    adding a contrasting body and a trailing shuck.

    Cutter's E/C

    Caddis - Tan Caddis is a highly effective imitation of an emergent or

    crippled Tan Caddis. This fly works like a charm from Hot Creek to

    Patagonia and properly prepared anglers always carry a few in their fly

    Leland on Umpqua In 1972 a man named Dennis Black and his fly tying skills found themselves in high demand. Mr. Black, then a professional production fly tyer, was famous in the industry for his unsurpassed skill and speed with whipping up tremendously beautiful and precisely constructed flies. It wasn't long until this young fly tying superstar realized that he ought to take his consistent approach to quality to the next level. Shortly after this realization, a small army of fly tyers had banded together to support Mr. Black's vision. With the likes of Dave Whitlock, Jack Dennis, and Andy Puyans, Mr. Black was officially in business. Dennis Black's new company Umpqua Feather Merchants quickly extended its reach and fly production capabilities with expansion into India, Sri Lanka, and Thailand, where the world's first and full blown "fly tying factories" were built. Since those early days, only the highest standard of excellence has marked Umpqua and this commitment to quality and efficiency continues to spur the company forward. Dennis Black's innovative vision for "fly production" has truly revolutionized how the fly industry operates and has ultimately made the majority of production flies better. From the first "royalty system" for rewarding the most creative professional fly tyers to streamlining production systems and offering a range of other products, Umpqua Feather Merchants just seems to "do it all." Today, Umpqua Feather Merchants is without a doubt the world's best and most prolific supplier of hand tied fly fishing flies as well as fly tying hooks and materials, and they recently got better! Umpqua's brand new, state of the art headquarters in Louisville, Colorado marks another paradigm shift in the way fly tying business is done. From its vast warehouse to its specially designed inventory management and tracking system, Umpqua is poised to continue its energetic trajectory and lead the way for the next generation of flies and fly tyers.
