Welcome to Annika Rod and Fly
    We are in the process or redesigning our website, so be patient and check back often, let us know what you think.   We are starting a new contest on the ARF website.  I will be posting pictures of fishing spots.  Email Don your guess on where the fishing spot is and you will be entered into a drawing for a prize from the shop.  Here is the first fishing hole.

ARF Flies Vacation in Warmer Climates
A couple of dozen of ARF bonefish flies headed south for a couple of weeks of R & R.  As you can see some unsuspecting bones found them as beautiful as we did.  Wes, thanks for the great photo.
