Flies

There are 2 important things to know about our flies:

1) They are Proven Producers
— We don’t sell any “Fad Flies” (hyped for a season or two, then disappear).
— All of our flies are vigorously tested by Tim Holschlag and his associates.
— We let the fish decide which flies are worthy to offer.

2) They are High Quality
— Our flies are skillfully tied, only by American tyers. This costs us more, yet we still offer them to you for a reasonable price. 
— Our flies are consistently well-tied and durable. They have exactly the right materials, weight and proportions to catch smallmouth bass.
–You can pay more elsewhere for flies that look fancier, but you won’t find any that are better fish-catchers and last longer.
