I know a lot about flies and how to fish them. There are many kinds of flies.
A few years ago, I started tying my own flies. I tie nymphs, streamers,dry
flies, wet flies, and bass bugs. I have decided to make my flies available to
the public. I do not have a wet fly package available, but I can do custom
My goal is to provide you with high quality flies that are more durable and
effective than commercially tied flies. I take care to prevent loops of excess
thread and other problems that are common in commercially tied flies.
One important thing about all of my flies is that they are lead free. I use
other types of weight to get my flies down. Lead can be harmful to both fish

Wet Flies: A wet fly is a fly that imitates a dead insect that has sunk below

Streamers: A streamer is a fly that imitates a baitfish. Do what you can
to make it look lifelike.
Deer Hair Bugs: A deer hair bug is a floating fly with a deer hair body
that creates a wake when it is pulled through the water. Try the twitch and
