In 1972, Umpqua revolutionized the fly fishing industry by being the first to offer flies with consistent quality in large quantities. Previously, most flies were hand tied by local fisherman, fishing shops or outdoors stores. While the quality of these local flies could be exceptional, they weren't always consistent and most were very expensive. Umpqua Feather Merchants changed all that and consequentially made fly fishing more accessible than ever. In addition to their exceptional flies and accessories, Umpqua packs and bags are coveted by serious fly fisherman around the globe.
