Why You Never Go Fly Fishing Alone October 23, 2018 – Posted in: Vedavoo

You never go fly fishing alone. Even though angling is a pursuit that many gravitate toward because of the frequent solitude, true isolation isn’t a reality for the vast majority of people. It might mean another car in the parking lot. It could sound like the droning of a jet just out of sight. It may even be the nagging knowledge that eventually you’ll have to reel in your line, take off your boots, and…

Fair Game – Top Three Thursday September 27, 2018 – Posted in: Top 3 Thursday

Remember a few weeks back when the Top Three Thursday post had to do with non-fishing fall favorites?

Torchbearer Spotlight: Justin Carfagnini September 11, 2018 – Posted in: From Our Community

At Vedavoo, we don’t have ambassadors.  We don’t have a pro staff.  We have the Torchbearers: a global team of people who believe in what we do, and (more importantly) how we do it. Grassroots and local, they do what they can to bear the torch of Vedavoo in their areas. This includes sending in photos of our gear in the field, posting videos they’ve made of our work in action, or leading action to…

Vedavoo Anniversary: 9 Questions for 9 Years June 19, 2018 – Posted in: Vedavoo

Today marks the nine-year anniversary of Vedavoo! We asked company founder Scott Hunter nine questions about Vedavoo, the fly fishing industry, and gear: In one word, what were you thinking in June of 2009? Frustration. I was legitimately frustrated with the gear that was in the market. Other packs worked, but nothing really hit the mark for me.  Designs were overcomplicated and often didn’t function as they should. That frustration led me to innovate through…

Vedavoo and Thomas & Thomas June 5, 2018 – Posted in: Workshop Fresh

The Rod You Will Eventually Own is now protected by Better American Gear. Beginning in June of 2018, all Thomas & Thomas fly rods will come in Vedavoo rod bags. This collaboration makes sense at a number of levels. For one, both companies are located in central Massachusetts. Door-to-door, one can travel between the two in just about an hour. Employees live in the same towns and fish the same rivers. Although T&T predates Vedavoo…

VEDAVOO VISE: Tying Community Together March 27, 2018 – Posted in: Vedavoo

It the short history of VEDAVOO VISE, the monthly fly tying event at the Vedavoo workshop, we’ve seen the creation of some impressive flies. Seasoned tiers have produced microscopic midges, cutting-edge saltwater patterns, and intricately articulated streamers. Plus, someone tied a fly that lights up. And another guy wove mop material. And a few people have tied their very first flies. Behind the bobbins and scissors, people are getting to know each other. Plans are…

VEDAVOO at the Shows March 14, 2018 – Posted in: Vedavoo

Fly fishing expos are always a great experience for the angling community. This winter, we were at The Fly Fishing Show in Colorado, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania; and also the Bear’s Den Fly Fishing Expo in Taunton, Massachusetts. It was excellent to have hundreds of friends, both new and familiar, stop by the booth to check out what Vedavoo is doing. It was a lot of fun to hear the adventures people who already fish…
