We hope you will find this thoughtful approach helpful to making a tool choice. Today we’ll be comparing our tool with the Quik Tye Knot Tying Tool, a plastic tool that offers two funnels, which rotate into place to help with threading. We’ll be comparing these devices along five categories: Ease of Threading, Assistance with Knot Tying, Additional Functionality, Safety and Price. You can review the basis for our...

Putting A Price on Greatness: The Costs Behind A TYEPRO

Putting A Price on Greatness: The Costs Behind A TYEPRO

I can usually sleep at night, looking at the reviews for TYEPRO products. My customers have provided over 900 five-star reviews for our products, and that seems like a satisfactory total to me, a small businessman from Ohio who runs his fishing “empire” from his home office.

TYE With A PRO: Chagrin Falls Outfitters' Dan Pribanic on Steelhead Alley

TYE With A PRO: Chagrin Falls Outfitters' Dan Pribanic on Steelhead Alley

Many fly fishing enthusiasts envision the rivers of the American West as the bucket list-level vacation. We may be biased as native Ohioans, but we think Northern Ohio—known affectionately as “Steelhead Alley” for its population of Rainbow Trout—is as great as any. We spoke with Dan Pribanic, the owner of Chagrin River Outfitters, for what visitors to this region can expect during Fall, a season many consider to be the best for the hobby. He’s also biased—toward his native Chagrin River, a tributary just east of Cleveland—but he also recommends the nearby Grand River, Conneaut Creek near the Pennsylvania border,...
