If you like to roll your own, order a sample pattern of interest. Private and group instruction is available.

I insist on tying high quality flies, which takes time so order before you’re into fish. The only flies available for immediate shipping are usually what we are fishing at that time, but supplies are always limited.

Fly Patterns

I do not lay claim to any of the patterns I tie for sale, but I am proud of the fact that I apply my vision and style to all of my flies. In my opinion for a pattern to truly be unique it would encompass a new method of tie, a combination of methods, or a unique material not just a different feather in a different color.

I can remember going to every seminar I could, pattern book under my arm, hoping to get an autograph and some wise words from my favorite tiers. The list included Lefty Kreh, Bob Clouser, Bob Popovics, Lou Tabory, Eric Leiser, Bill Peabody, Eric Petersen, Kenney Abrames and Dave Whitlock. A new list for me would have to include the destined to be legend Mr. David Skok.

I do believe it true is that if you took a new material and handed it to ten tiers to create lets say a herring fly, necessity of invention would probably lead them to the same place. I believe Darwin called it convergent evolution.

I always attempt to give appropriate credit to the pattern originator or the inspiration of any fly I tie.

“One holds up a fly and thinks both like a fish and like a fisherman, and perhaps like a species of prey, all at once.” - Thomas Mcguane
