Jean and I, as well as the entire Blackfly Outfitter team, are very pleased to officially welcome Matti Majorin as part of our Blackfly family. Matti has been a steadfast and strong supporter of Blackfly from the very beginning. For years he has supported the development of the Blackfly brand with counsel, support and guidance, as well being a tireless ambassador around the globe and to the fly fishing trade.
Since the first day we met nearly 25 years ago to fish for tarpon around Key West, Matti and I have developed a very special friendship. His love of nature and of all things fly fishing, his talent as a fly tyer and his ability to put the fly where it mattered, made for some unforgettable days on the flats. Since then, we have been very lucky to share many days on the flats at the Blackfly Lodge, bringing back more than our share of fishing stories.
With an international background and DNA wired for travel, Matti has been very lucky to wander around the globe visiting many places.
Seychelles, St. François Atoll, 2013
From his beloved and native Finland, to the Kola Peninsula and all the way to Tierra Del Fuego, Patagonia, the Seychelles and the Amazon, Matti has traveled in pursuit of tarpon, bonefish, trout, salmon, northern pike, musky, sailfish, peacock bass, and many other species.
Throughout his travel and because of his passion for fly fishing, Matti has also managed to build great friendships with many in the fly fishing world.
In our quest to serve our customers ever better, we have begun a new chapter at Blackfly Outfitter with a greatly expanded store, a new Café and Taproom right next door, and so much more.
Matti is helping us develop these ventures as a partner, and as our Brand Research Manager, as well as our Travel Ambassador. With his help and with the help of our great partners in the travel industry, we are about to offer hosted trips, new fly fishing schools, and a greatly expanded web presence.
Together with the team at Untamed Angling, Matti will host a trip to the Marié River in Brazil from Sept 28 – Oct 6.
Marié River: Rio De Gigantes, Brazil 2015
He was on the Marié for the opening of the new lodge last year and the fishing was incredible! Join him if you want a chance at catching a giant Peacock Bass, it is the best place in the world to do it. Period! Knowing Matti it will be a another great trip.
Thank you Matti for the great support all these years. We are all looking forward to building a great future altogether for Blackfly.
Vaughn Cochran, May 2016.
