A simple tool for packing hair
The most important tool for spinning hair and shaping flies is a vacuum cleaner. The second most important tool is a hair packer. The familiar shape of the Ergo Hair Packer is borrowed from the cork handle of a fly rod. It sits comfortably in hand and provides enough mass and taper to push against to make sure that your spun hair gets packed as tight as a bowl at a Mongolian Barbecue. There are two different diameters of hole for accommodating flies of different sizes, and the ends are beveled to ensure that hair can be packed deep into the bend of the hook.

They've got anything you could need. It's a huge selection, which is surprising for a small town shop. They're amazing people and Collin can answer any questions you have. His knowledge is impressive.
I recently spent a weekend with a close group of friends fly fishing along with Colin and team - incredible preparation & professionalism, quality camp equipment and fishing gear and just a first class operation overall. I would and highly recommend RMFS to any and all fishing skill levels interested in enjoying themselves on the water. It was a really positive experience for our group.
Congrats to Colin and Tammy on the move to their new location in downtown Olds! The prices are fair, they have a great selection and the shipping is lighting fast. Best sticker offerings I have seen south of Red Deer as a kicker.
I had a fabulous lesson with Jordan from Rocky Mountain Fly Shop. We went out on the water and he tailored the lesson to my experience and skill level. We touched on casting, fly selection and an introduction to reading water. It was all hands on and I walked away with the confidence to try new things this summer. It was a perfect morning and I'll definitely do it again.
