At Umpqua, they're tied to the water. They're love of the water is the constant that binds them together. From flies to tools, everything Umpqua does is made for the water.
The idea started back in 1972, to provide the highest quality flies from the countries best tyers and file these unique patterns into your box. Their 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 Umpqua has grown their Family to include 240 of the most influential tyers of yesterday and today whose flies push the envelope of creativity and success. Umpqua continues to drive innovation and carry that same inspiration from their flies - into hook design, pack design, pack innovation, fly storage and the tools we use riverside or at our desks.
