Mike Schmidt to Teach Fly Tying

We''s official.

Mike Schmidt of Anglers Choice flies will now be working with Mad River Outfitters. Mike will be serving as a Fly Tying consultant and will be teaching some Intermediate and Advanced fly tying classes. He will be doing some custom fly tying for us as well as for our friends over at Steelhead Alley Outfitters.

We will get things started with an Intermediate/Advanced Fly Tying Course that starts on Wednesday, February 24th. This class will run 4 consecutive Wednesdays and the cost is $85.00 for the session. He has put together a great class and we are really excited about it.
Mike will also be teaching some specialty classes as well. Keep your eyes on the Calendar.

We are thrilled to have Mike join our team.

Our New Blog!

Welcome Friends!

Yep...I was the one that said Mad River Outfitters would never have a website. I was the one that said we would never be on Facebook. And yes...I was the one that said we would never have a "Blog". I'm still not sure what a "Blog" is, but I'm pretty excited about it.

Just wanted to extend a huge welcome to all of our friends and customers! Thanks for taking the time to read this. We think it will be worth your time to hang out here often!

We have a ton to talk about and this will serve as a great tool to relay the latest news, pictures and videos.

Here are a few "Blog" topics to come in the next few weeks:

* New shop mascot- "Sam" at 11 weeks he's already following in the footsteps of his Uncle Bear- pictures up on Facebook and soon to come here

* Bill is on his way to Brazil for Peacock Bass and will have a full report upon his return- complete with pics and video (we bought a cool cam)

* New shop employees- Lou Uecker and Ben Miller - we'll introduce you to these youngsters who are mostly responsible for this "new fangled" stuff you'll be seeing

* Upgraded and Updated Ohio Fishing Reports are on the way

* Steelhead Alley Outfitters- spring steelhead trips booking now! Call or e-mail!
Special Guests Greg Senyo and Patrick Robinson- March 12th and 13th

And that's just the beginning!

We have so much in store that I just can't wait to get at it. New trips, new classes, new employees, new products.

Thanks for reading and thanks for your support of MRO! We are coming off of our best year ever in 2009......and 2010 is already off to the races.

Check back soon and also be sure to look us up on Facebook as well!
