Mad River Outfitters and Great Lakes Steelhead
Steelhead Season is upon us,,,,,,and we couldn't be more excited!

Things are really heating up as things cool down in the region. 

Tons of things to talk about soon but we wanted to drop you a note with some info and reminders related to Mad River Outfitters and Great Lakes Steelhead on the fly. Our 18th season in the business and they just keep getting better!

Most notably, we wanted to pass along a "Stelhead Coupon" which you will find at the bottom of this mailer. It's our way of saying thanks for thinking of Mad River Outfitters for your steelhead needs. From rods and reels, flies, lines and all the great tackle to guides, trips and classes....we have you covered.

Use this coupon between now and October 17th and we'll give you 20% any online order. All you have to do is tell us you are "Stocking Up for Steelhead Season" in the Order Notes. Please remember that your online invoice won't show the discount, but we will apply once we ring you up and it will show on your receipt. 
Here's to a great season and we hope that you will join us for some great Steelheading here in the Great Lakes Region!

Fish Tailer Landing Glove

A must have for Steelhead and Salmon anglers!

You see these in almost every picture. This item allows you to positively grab a large fish by the tail for a secure grip. Safer release and better pictures!!

This one comes to us from the folks at Orvis and is by far the best version we have seen on the market.

Check out the Fish Tailer Landing Glove HERE
The new two-handed switch and spey rods from Redington are in the house!

These are some great offerings in this category and certainly some of the finest sticks for the money that you can find.

Lou Uecker at the shop really loves these and they meet his approval.

Graham took one up to Alaska and caught a mess of big rainbows on it and loved it!

The new Redington Prospector Switch and Spey rods come in at $399.00

to view the rods!
