We pride ourselves on fishing any fly we can get our hands on and we like to spread the love to the folks that tie the flies that work for us. These are our “confidence patterns” the ones that always seem to work.

We will be offering flies for sale from several tiers. Sometimes it will be a fly you can purchase elsewhere but some of our flies will be from tiers we know that are not commercial.
