The inaugural Bobbin The Hood event hosted by Schultz Outfitters was a great success! Plans for 2024 are already in the works. The event included some of the best tiers in the Midwest and beyond, including Renzetti Ambassadors Blane Chocklett, Russ Maddin and Matt Grajewski. Besides the ambassadors, it was nice to see all the tiers using Renzetti vises!

The event had a heavy focus on streamer tying and fishing for a variety species. From trout, bass, muskie, pike, and steelhead, there was something for everyone who streamer fishes in the Midwest region.

The event was held in Ypsilanti, Michigan, which is known as Depot Town due to its history. The venue was The Freighthouse, a historical landmark originally used as a distribution center for rail-bound goods. It is located only two blocks from the Schultz Outfitters fly shop. Attendees were easily able to bounce back and forth between the event and the shop.

Overall, a really fun event and our ambassadors are looking forward to next year!
