Tippets: Orvis Rod Swap, Flymen Micro Shanks

May 28, 2016 By: Erin Block

  • Through June 19, 2016 Orvis will give customers a 20% discount on one of their new American-made fly rods, in exchange for a trade-in rod (must be in fishable condition). The trade-in rods will be donated to charitable organizations that help get kids into fly fishing. Visit the Orvis website for more information about the rod swap offer.
  • Paul Beel writes about the new Micro Shanks from Flymen Fishing Company, which are co-designed with steelhead and salmon expert Greg Senyo. “The ultralight, slim, and strong shank also offers a new option for tying surface flies and brings a high degree of realistic, articulated movement to small fly design.”
