We are just getting started sharing what a great hobby fly tying is!
Fly tying is a perfect compliment to your fishing, especially on cold rainy evenings or any other time when you can't get out on the water. It can transport you in mind and spirit to your favorite spot as you prepare for your next angling adventures.
And there are more than a few people who tie flies and don't even fish. They just enjoy the "art & science" of lashing fur and feather to a hook and admire or share the creations they come up with.
Tying flies can be challenging and frustrating, especially when starting or learning to tie a new pattern. No matter whether you're a beginner or expert, we're here to help make it fun and easy with help and advice for any need. Whether trout or bass, fresh or saltwater, traditional or modern, we will help you enjoy tying anything. Browse through our site and feel encouraged to
contact us with any questions or requests you may have.
