At Leland I like to wear many different hats as it keeps the day interesting, from shooting product photos to assisting with the website updates. However, I spend most of my time in the Upgrade Program writing ebay listings, shooting the products, and ultimately helping our Upgraders fish the gear they want.

detdesc::How you got started fly fishing? What were/are your strongest fly fishing Influences? What was your most memorable or first fly fishing experience?

My addiction began in my late teens. My two best friends were influenced by one of their fathers, and of course I wanted to join in on the fun. I would have never started fly fishing with them if I hadn't found my grandfathers old rod in our cottage's outhouse/shed. I was digging around for tools when I came across an Eagle Claw #7 fiberglass rod matched with a Pflueger Medalist reel. The line was cracked and worn and my home made leader of straight 8 lb mono did the trick my first few outings. I landed many fish using that before I knew better to move on to a more modern and practical outfit.

What do you like to fish now? Explain How?

Before moving to San Francisco from the Upper Peninsula of Michigan I spent most of my time fishing for trout. Mostly native brook trout within a few minutes of my house to browns and rainbows across the UP. I tried my luck at steelheading one season before finally landing some great lakes chrome in 2008. Now I spend my time fishing for just about anything as long as I'm out with rod in hand, yet trout are still my go to species to fish for.

What is your fantasy trip? What do you see in the future?

Currently, my fantasy trip is a week straight fishing my home waters in the UP.

Gear. What is your next purchase and why?

My next purchase... probably some tippet and meaty flies. Big ticket items include a Red Truck Premium 5/6 reel, a six weight, and a light trout rod choosing between a Scott G2 or Leland Sonoma Traveler.

What’s your favorite San Francisco spot? Why?

Non fishing related favorite San Francisco spot combines a few things and places. 21st Amendment Brewery beer, Nicks Crispy Tacos, and enjoying both on Baker Beach.

What music do you listen to when you hop in the truck and go fly fishing?

Back in the day, when I use to own a car the go to road tunes would be Tom Petty, the Wildflowers album especially in the woods, in a jeep, rods rigged up getting knocked about.

What’s your ultimate fly fishing travel rig? A lifted van? A Range Rover? An F-350? Why?

My ultimate fly fishing rig includes 4 wheels and a motor, if we're pushing it, make it a 4WD

My favorite fish to chase is Pacific Steelhead. There’s just something about this fish that is haunting…where it lives in the ocean, what it eats, why it grabs a swinging fly…I hope I never find out the answers to these questions. At Leland I work in Video Production, Business Development, Product Development and taking out the garbage.

detdesc::How you got started fly fishing? What were/are your strongest fly fishing Influences? What was your most memorable or first fly fishing experience?

I was blessed with a grandfather who was an avid fly angler. At the age of 4, I followed my grandfather about in the streams and lakes of California’s Sierra Nevada. In awe, I watched him cast flies to wary trout, and with my first trout on a fly, a life’s passion was born. My mentor gifted him with my very own fly rod at age seven and…the world has never been the same. Slowly, skills were honed and new waters were introduced: the Madison, the Yellowstone and Silver Creek. My fly fishing journey has since expanded to more exotic angling destinations. However, I've never forgotten the early years at my grandfather’s side casting flies for trout.

What do you like to fish now? Explain How?


My favorite fish to chase is the Pacific steelhead. There’s just something about this fish that is haunting…where it lives in the ocean, what it eats, why it grabs a swinging fly…I hope I never find out the answers to these questions. There’s no better way to chase a steelhead than on the swing. Elegant casts and smooth mends on broad rivers with traditional flies...yup. Every swing could be the one. When the tug finally comes, it’s always a surprise. Regardless of size, every wild steelhead is amazing to encounter.

What is your fantasy trip? What do you see in the future?

As a father of two young girls who already love to fish, I cannot wait for them to be old enough to join him on a true angling adventure. Whether in a drift boat on a trout river, or on the bow of a flats boat, it doesn’t matter to me. Sharing the sport of fly fishing and the sights and sounds that nature provides with my girls will be the ultimate.

Gear. What is your next purchase and why?

Always looking for something unique, I hope to acquire that “special” fly rod that cosmetically reminds me of the days on the water with my grandfather, but casts like a contemporary performance fly rod.

What’s your favorite San Francisco spot? Why?

Late summer on the San Francisco bay: At water level, the city’s sky line looks even more impressive. The Golden Gate Bridge stands guard as ocean-cooled fog snakes like thick waterfalls through the draws of the Marin Headlands. It’s a great sight.

What music do you listen to when you hop in the truck and go fly fishing?

Robert Earl Keen Jr., Pat Green, The Gourds, Wrinkle Neck Mules and Credence Clearwater Revival. Music from these artists and bands brings back good memories of road trips with friends, time on the water and laughs.

What’s your ultimate fly fishing travel rig? A lifted van? A Range Rover? An F-350? Why?

A Sportsmobile! Imagine a full-size, 4-wheel van with a 600 mile range, solar panels on the roof, a navigation system, all the amenities and enough fly gear to open a shop. It’s a mobile fly shop you can sleep in. Just need the “winning lotto” numbers and away we go!

Anything else we should know about you? School? Hometown? Other projects, interests, etc.?

I live in Marin, CA with my wife Linda, daughters Sophia and Siena, Yellow Lab named Jager Dog and a cat named Bella…which I like to describe as “my wife’s cat.”

Tie only a few strands into your streamers and saltwater flies - fish will jump at its hypnotic effect!

Specifications
Spirit River's Mylar Mirror Flash is the most reflective flash material on the market. Use this fly tying flash material in murky water or in situations when subsurface visibility is poor.

Spirit River's Mylar Mirror Flash is available in purple, pearl, peacock, olive, lime, and blue flashy colors.



Details
- Brightest, most reflective synthetic flash material money can buy

- Great for flash tails in streamers and saltwater flies

- Packed in 6-inch long doubled hanks

- Colors: purple, pearl, peacock, olive, lime, and blue



Common patterns

Leland on Mylar Mirror Flash
For the punchiest baitfish and streamer imitations, look no further than Spirit River's Mylar Mirror Flash. This durable fly tying material is made of long strands of Mylar specially developed to be the industry leader in brilliant, reflective qualities. Use just a few strands in your favorite Whistler and other baitfish patterns to create depth, dimension, contrast, flash, and movement - these elements are extremely important when fishing subsurface fly patterns. This synthetic fly tying flash material is perfect for low visibility water conditions. Just be careful not to use too much of this ultra shiny material - it's brilliance is blinding.



Leland on Flash Material
This material is designed for times when tyers want to "kick it up a notch." It is available in many colors and reflective grades. Tying some flashabou or other Mylar reflective material to a fly will increase its attractive quality and draw the interest of more fish, especially in low light situations and darker, deeper, murkier water. It is more common to find flash and reflective material in streamer patterns and nymph recipes, but it can also be a useful highlight to the wings of a dry fly, especially in the extra-fine diameters.

Since 1990, Spirit River, Inc. has been providing quality, service, and innovation to the fly tying industry. Continually offering creative new products of the highest quality and application, Spirit River, Inc. pushes the envelope in fly tying each and every season.

detdesc::Credit for the Stimulator’s design is often given to master fly tyer

Randall Kaufmann, who promoted the fly heavily in the western United

States. But according to Modesto, California-based fly tyer and angler,

Jim Slattery, the Stimulator is his Frankenstein; borrowing heavily

from Pat Barnes’ 1940s fly the “Sofa Pillow, and taking its name from a

popular New York City-based punk band. Slattery says he tied the

pattern in 1980 to fish what was then his backyard fly water: the

Musconetcong River in New Jersey. Any way you slice it, the Stimulator

is a fantastic emergent and adult stonefly imitation.

Kaufmann’s

Olive Stimulator is a perfect imitator of that, limited, but often

highly productive early season hatch of Skwala stoneflies. With its

subdued olive floss body, stiff elk hair wing, and supportive hackle,

this fly will ride neatly and visibly on the water’s surface – just

where those hungry Montana and Washington trout want it.
featdesc::
  • The development of this fly pattern is often credited to master fly tyer Randall Kaufmann, but Modesto, California’s Jim Slattery claims to have tied the first Stimulator in 1980 while living and fishing in New Jersey
  • Skwala stonefly imitation in the emerger or adult life stage
  • Use as either an impressionistic searching fly or as a realistic imitation when matching the hatch
  • Drift the fly through different water types; faster riffles and shallower water near the banks of a river with moderate to slow currents are the most productive water types for this fly
  • Skwala stoneflies are available to trout during the early season (February – April) in stretches of trout water in Montana and Washington
  • Hatches occur consistently and with long duration throughout the daylight hours
  • Strikes on skwala stoneflies are often far from subtle because trout must often be prepared to rip these strong clingers from their rocky homes
  • When approaching a shallow water environment with a stonefly imitation, be extremely careful not to spook happily feeding trout

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.

detdesc::In the great and storied trout waters of North America, a little midge

larva can go a long way. In fact, one of the most frequent mistakes

made by trout anglers is overlooking the importance of a simple midge

to a trout’s diet.

Professional fly tyer and a modern fly

fishing legend on Colorado’s famous trout rivers, Greg Garcia is known

for his meticulous approach to the sport. Over the years, his quiet and

methodical attention to detail and unique ability to recognize where to

devote his angling energy has helped him learn to love the midge.

That’s why he worked so hard to develop his now famous Rojo Midge fly

pattern, a beautiful little midge larva that has now enticed trout

across the globe.

Garcia’s Rojo Midge is his first production

fly pattern with Umpqua Feather Merchants and is constructed with an

attractive glass bead, iridescent peacock herl gill tuft, and flashy

wire ribbing. This little midge fly pattern is a hungry trout’s

dinnertime dream!
featdesc::
  • Professional fly tyer, Greg Garcia’s, first fly pattern with Umpqua Feather Merchants
  • Creative and elegant use of materials to spice up a simple midge imitation
  • Midge imitation in the mature larval life stage
  • Fishes effectively in all types of trout water
  • Dead drift through slower water and eddies
  • Faster riffles and current seams can also be great spots to dead drift a midge larva pattern
  • Midges are often most effectively fished when attached as a dropper to a larger nymph or when fished just below the water’s surface with a large dry fly as a strike indicator
  • Because of the common and widespread nature of midge species, trout anglers ought to keep a wide selection of midge fly patterns in their fly boxes

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.

detdesc::How to set up “The Hopper Dropper Rig” – or “The Dry Dropper Rig”

By George Revel

The Hopper Dropper Rig is easily one of my favorite and most productive rigs. This rig is my go to summertime creek and river rig. I have had great luck with hopper dropper rigs on the North Fork of the Yuba River, The Upper Sacramento River, The McCloud River, and The Truckee River.

The hopper does not always have to be a hopper just as long as it serves as both and indicator and an enticing meal. The dropper is generally a bead head nymph and size will depend on how buoyant your dry fly is.

My favorite flies for this set up are:

The Chubby Chernobyl for the dry

The Flashback Pheasant Tail for the nymph.

How to set up a hopper dropper rig:

1) Leader choice for the hopper dropper rig:

I start with a 7.5 foot 4x mono leader and loop to loop it to my fly line or butt section. I chose a shorter mono leader because it turns over the larger foam flies I like to fish with my hopper dropper rigs. Also mono leaders float.

  How to tie a Hopper Dropper Rig Step 1  

2) Choose your dry fly/Indicator for your hopper dropper rig:

The next step is to choose and tie on your dry fly for your hopper dropper rig.  You should base this on the size of dropper you want to fish. My favorite dry fly to use with a hopper dropper rig is the Chubby Chernobyl. Tie this on with a Clinch Knot.

 How to tie a Hopper Dropper Rig Step 2 

3) Attach fluorocarbon to the bend of the dry fly for your Hopper Dropper Rig:

Tie a section of 5 or 6x fluorocarbon on the bend of you dry fly with a clinch knot. The longer you make this section the deeper your dropper fly will sink. Keep in mind the longer this section is the more difficult the hopper dropper rig will be to cast. I like to keep it around 3 feet. 

How to Tie a hopper dropper rig step 3

4) Choose and tie on your dropper fly:

I like to use a beadhead nymph that I have confidence in. Usually I end up using a pheasant tail, a prince nymph or a copper john.

 How to Tie a hopper dropper rig step 4 

5) Put some floatant and dry shake on the dry fly of your hopper dropper rig:

How to fish your hopper dropper rig:

I like to fish this hopper dropper rig in shallow riffles. The faster moving water gives the fish less time to inspect and just react. Another great method is to fish your way up stream, cast your hopper dropper rig in front of rocks allowing the hopper and dropper rig to flow around the rock and back toward you. As your hopper dropper rig is drifting back toward you lift your rod and strip in the slack.
