Montana Fly Fishing Guides and Tours

Custom-flies are always better!

Did you know that throughout history, artificial fish flies constructed of furs, feathers, and threads bound on hooks were created by anglers to attract fish. The first known mention of an artificial fly was in 200 AD in Macedonia! (Thank you, Wikipedia...). Our fish flies for sale follow that ancient tradition.

I usually tie between 300 and 400 dozen fish flies during the winter when I can't get on the rivers. We provide all the flies for our clients on our trips, and I spend all winter getting my boxes full of some of my old stand-by patterns. When the snow is on the ground and the nights are cold, I'm working overtime to get ready for the next season, tying flies day and night.

Every year, I also come up with some new patterns... some that don't even have names!

If you would like to place orders for any of my fish flies, I sell them in dozen lots. They cost $30.00 - 36.00 USD per dozen, depending upon the pattern. All my flies are stage and triple-glued, using the finest materials available. My fish flies have been used in many waters around the world.

Popular patterns for sale are Bugmeisters, Transformers (all colors), Hymen Hoppers, Congo Caddis, Nightmares, Extended Bodies and The Wickeds.
