Andrea Larko March 15, 2018 – Posted in: From Our Community, Reel Service, Special Projects

I’ve fished since I was old enough to throw a rod in the water while trying to cast and have my father go in after it. My 3 sisters and I grew up fishing the water around Pennsylvania and my mother told me we used to run to the water like we were going to the amusement park. I picked up a fly rod about 10 years ago and started my career as an angling…

Alex Poland February 26, 2018 – Posted in: From Our Community, Reel Service, Special Projects

My name is Alex Poland. I am an avid fly fisherman and artist. A jack of all trades in most respects, but my true passion lies within fishing and the inspiration I find to paint from it. I grew up in a family filled with artistic talent. My mother, grandmother, and great grandmother were all artists. I was fortunate enough to be able to watch all of them paint as a child. During this time…

Minnesota based artist and avid fly fisherman,  I grew up learning to fish on the Mississippi River, while spending the rest of my free time drawing dragons, Wolverine, cyborgs, dragon-cyborg-Wolverines while listening to a rotation of heavy metal and classic hip hop cassette tapes with my brother. I have an MFA in painting and drawing from the University or Wisconsin-Madison, and an undergraduate degree from Macalester.  My work has been shown all over the U.S.…

Derek DeYoung February 16, 2018 – Posted in: In The News, Reel Service, Special Projects, Vedavoo, Workshop Fresh

Derek DeYoung was born on a bayou near the shores of Lake Michigan where his love of fishing was ignited. Over the years his art has veered from the classical fishing art, placing more importance on using a unique style and palette. Using oil paints on canvas, he artfully captures all the subtle intricacies fish possess; their colorful patterns, dimension and texture. Derek explains, “When hiking up a small mountain stream, I’m not just chasing…

For a Good Cause June 2, 2017 – Posted in: From Our Community, Special Projects, Vedavoo

This past weekend, I stood on our town green with a covered heart for the parade of flag bearing, uniformed veterans, representing generations of service from WWII to the latest conflict abroad.  Love it or hate it, there’s a real price paid for the lifestyle we love – and I count it a PRIVILEGE to honor those who assume their share of the bill with a firm handshake and a humble ‘Thank You’. Now that those respects have been paid, I am…
