Fly Design & Theory
We know fly selection has a lot to do with confidence, that's why we tie patterns that have proven themselves to us over the years. Fishing for anadromous fish demands that your fly be durable yet appealing to the eye and we have combined fishability with old world craftsmanship and modern materials. We don't have a $5,000 hydro-swim-tank to test our flies, but we do have the luxury to drown them in one of the many great rivers that surrounds us. Research & development is our favorite part.
Many steelhead fishermen prefer to tie their own flies and for those that do we would love to share our knowledge. Perhaps you're a discerning angler who just doesn't have time to tie - Recipes for each of our patterns are available as well as step-by-step tutorials. You can also find short articles and ramblings-on about technique and materials. Our main goal is to help you catch a fish, and if it happens to be with one of our flies, all the better.
