A Message to Our Customers

Friends, first week of July and our last week here at 813 Bethel Rd. in Columbus. The end of an era for sure, but the beginning of an exciting new one as well. Coming soon... MRO 2.0!

We are packing things up this week and getting ready for the "big move" which begins next week. During this time of moving the shop, we will be closing things up completely and unable to conduct business in our normal fashion. Here is what is happening this week:

• The online store will shut down for orders this Thursday, July 9th at 6:00 p.m. All orders placed before that time will be processed and shipped as usual.
• Curbside pick-ups of said orders will be available until close of business on Saturday, July 11th at 5:00 p.m.
• We will be closed for business completely from July 12th- July 26th and hope to resume "Normal Operations" in our new location, 833 Bethel Rd., on July 27th. We'll keep you informed if this changes.

Please see our Blog for videos, information and updates.

We thank you for your patience and support of Mad River Outfitters during this transition and upgrade to our business!

Swimmin Jimmy - Sobota's

- bass/trout size 4

$7.99

The unique way in which this is tied gives it some crazy action on...and in the water. Fish it on a sink tip or a full sinker and use it like a crank bait/jerk bait. One of our favorites for Largemouth and Smallmouth.......perfectly imitates the action of a dying or wounded baitfish.

The Swmmin Jimmy is simply one of the coolest, most effective and most innovative flies we have seen.......period.  Designed for super large trout but we use these for big bass around here. Unique, jointed body makes this a floating version of the T & A Bunker series. Size 4 hook on the front with a small trailer off the back.

Here is what Kelly Galloup says on his website:
 
"This fly was designed by Andy Sobota. Andy has worked for me for 5 years, and is one of the finest tiers in the country today. He created this fly while trying to improve on the T&A Rainbow pattern. Andy's dad was an avid bass tournament angler and fished a lot of mid-level body baits like the Zara Spook. Andy wanted something that would ride just below the surface and then pop back to the surface like an injured minnow. This fly does it. We have caught almost every gamefish in North America with the Swimmy Jimmy, including carp. This may be the granddaddy of all trigger flies when fished properly. Like the Banjo Minnow, "They don't want to eat it; they have to eat it." The guys at Schmidt Outfitters in Wellston, Michigan, have recently been swinging the Swimmy’ Jimmy for king salmon and making the big fish go crazy."
 
Swimmy Jimmy...or the Swimmin' Jimmy fly size: #4 (Articulated). Available here in the original Rainbow coloration which might as well be called the Baby Bass. This fly is approximately 4 1/4" long.
