n 1990 Jim Lepage and the Orvis Co. designed and patented the original "Big Eye" hook. The original big eye was a straight eyed dry fly hook with an oversized eye (Daiichi 1110) to ease the threading of tippets. Style #1100 was introduced in 1994 and is the same basic design as to 1110 except it is the down-eyed version, which is more popular for dry flies

The hooks are made of the finest high-carbon steel, which is hardened and tempered to an exacting formula that makes for a long point life and a very strong hook. Daiichi hooks use a 12-degree constant taper ground needle point eliminating irregularities in shape, assuring no weak spots, & gives an amazing speed of penetration.

Testimonials

Hands down best fly shop I have been to!

Very knowledgeable and extremely helpful, super friendly and great variety of product.

Brett Johnson

Excellent shop!

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.

Incredible preparation & professionalism

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.

The prices are fair and shipping is lighting fast

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

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.
