Writing this website for the past ten years has put me in touch with quite a few "Small Shop" owners from rod builders to fly reel and gear makers, those that sew, fly shop friends, artists and photographers and quite a few more craftsmen and women in this niche industry of fly fishing.  The entire fly fishing industry doesn't take up a lot of space and it's always kind of hard to draw that line of where "Small Shop" ends and "Big Shop" begins.  I always look at it as one or just a handful working together to stay on that "Small Shop" side of the spectrum.    

Days like Shop Small Saturday are of course important but really, support through the entire year is what keeps these artisans and shop owners going day to day.  Many however, look to the holiday season to finish out the year squarely in the black, so consider this as you map out your holiday spending.   

Here's a short list of "Shop Small Saturday" offers that you should consider taking advantage of this weekend...

Someone still needs to pick up this Graywolf Rods yellow glass spinning rod.  Or I will.   
Vedavoo is offering 20% off today using code "handbuilt".
Sight Line Provisions is offering a free Gear Tag with purchase over $60.
Save 10% at Blue Sky Furled Leaders using code "TFM".  Think stocking stuffers...
Finn Utility has the camo James Wallet 30% off using code "GREENSPEY".
Whiskey Leatherworks is offering 20% off with code "holidayweekend". Remember these belts.

Remember Tin Crown Photo?  He's offering 20% off and proceeds benefit PHWFF. Code "HOLIDAY2018"
Fly Slaps is celebrating one year in the business with 15% off code "15over15".
The Flyfish Journal and Tail Fly Fishing Magazine both have great holiday promotions going on.
Don't forget the artists. Bob White, Paul Puckett, Derek DeYoung (and others) have great sales.
PAKMULE is offering a set of 4' MULEstraps with a cargo carrier purchase.  Code "holiday".
Lastly, don't forget your local fly shop.  I bet that have some great deals going and would be really glad if you stopped by.

Oh yeah, and don't forget the T.F.M. STORE as I have quite a few items that would be perfect to gift at Christmas.  Send an email to to place an order.

I'll try to keep this list updated through the day and have been sharing other sales and promotions through the T.F.M. Instagram Stories too.
