TIED TO THE WATER
At Umpqua, we’re tied to the water. Our love of the water is the constant that binds us all together. From flies to tools, everything we do is made for the water.
The idea started back in 1972, to provide the highest quality flies from the countries best tyers and bring them to your local fly shop and file these unique patterns into your box. Our early soulful beginnings on the N Umpqua River were built with signature patterns from anglers like Dave Whitlock, Lefty Kreh, Randall Kauffman, Larry Dahlberg, Mike Lawson and others. Now we have grown our Family to include 240 of the most influential tyers of yesterday and today whose flies push the envelope of creativity and success. We continue to drive innovation and carry that same inspiration from our flies - into hook design, pack innovation, fly storage and the tools we use riverside or at our desks.
