Re: Angling Community Frustrated by Steelhead Deal

This film is also incredible. Shane just finished it, and is starting to tour the country for showings. I highly suggest watching it.

Re: Angling Community Frustrated by Steelhead Deal

I make this point often with my peers and others I come across who participate in the Great Lakes fisheries. It turns out that it's an unpopular, faux pas of a thing to say, but it's true. Our...

Re: Angling Community Frustrated by Steelhead Deal

It's not so much their aggression. In fact, I'd say wild fish are more aggressive. The problem lies in the smolts that are released in to the river. The hatchery smolts are substantially larger...

Re: Angling Community Frustrated by Steelhead Deal

As someone who lives right at the confluence of the Skykomish and Snoqualmie, I'm very happy to see this decision.

The groups who pushed for this to happen, believe it or not, want more fish. The...

Re: Some new additions to the Allen Kraken series

Glad to hear it! We figure it will get some mixed reactions due to how big it appears. But once they start getting in to peoples hands, we know they'll see where we're coming from with it. I'm...

Some new additions to the Allen Kraken series

Hey All!

Evan from Allen Fly Fishing here. Figured while I was smoking some ribs for the 4th, I'd give NAFF the scoop on what we're adding to our Kraken reel series lineup here soon.

First up...

Re: 2013 5-Weight Shootout

I obviously work for a company that sells rods, and we weren't part of this shootout at all. But I was pretty taken aback by the comments toward Clutch and Mystic. Both companies are doing awesome...

Re: Allen's new "myth" flyrod any early reviews?

Dean,

We have made the Myth in a full line of sizes, but are getting ready to replace this series with a new, USA built series to be announced soon.

Re: Release of our new Kraken Fly Reel - Allen Fly Fishing

They both have their place. If this weren't a sealed drag, I'd go with a carbon disc 100% of the time. There are fantastic reels with both types of drags out there.

Re: Release of our new Kraken Fly Reel - Allen Fly Fishing

It does have a lower startup inertia, which was one of the deciding factors as well. As far as an exact reading on the stopping power, give me a few days to get my new office set up so I can pull up...

Both of us come from families who manufacture in the USA, so it's high on our priority list to get USA products in our lineup, and are doing so as we can. Next up will be some new rods we'll be...

Re: Release of our new Kraken Fly Reel - Allen Fly Fishing

Very much agreed! I think revisiting "old" is always a great way to do R&D. It's why we still have click pawl reels and fiberglass rods; they're just timeless. While we don't make either of those...

Re: Release of our new Kraken Fly Reel - Allen Fly Fishing

If anything, marketing would have steered us in the opposite direction. I truly honestly believe cork to be the best choice for this reel. The smoothness it achieves while offering more stopping...

Re: Release of our new Kraken Fly Reel - Allen Fly Fishing

Absolutely. It's actually quite easy to pull apart. This cork won't need that frequent of maintenance since it's not exposed to the elements, but a dab of neatsfoot oil once a season or so can only...

Re: Release of our new Kraken Fly Reel - Allen Fly Fishing

You would be correct, and that was an honest oversight on my part as I wrote the description on our store. This reel has a fully sealed cork drag. We tested out both cork and carbon disc in this...
