Hello Everyone, 
 We are now into the 2015 Fly tying Season and I would like to have everyone take a moment to read the changes coming up. I am just a few weeks away from my 73rd birthday and this will be my 63rd year at fly fishing and my 60th year at tying flies. At this stage of life I realize that I do not have many more productive years left to be able to tie professionally as I know my eye sight will wane and my fingers will not be as nimble as they were in earlier years. I have tied flies at a very small profit and given advise freely for many, many years. Since there is not much time left for me professionally, I would like to make the remainder of my tying career a more profitable one. Many of the flies that I have developed are world famous now and they are used all over the North American Continent with huge success. When I am no longer able to set behind the tying vise they will become heirlooms and be very expensive to buy any where. I would like to be able to receive some of the just rewards for these flies that have brought so much success and pleasure to the fishing public through the years.
Beginning November 1st, all of the flies that are sold from my website will sell for $5.00 each. I hope that all of my customers from past years will continue to support me and use the flies until I can no longer supply them to the public. I have appreciated your business through the years and I hope to hear from you again soon.

We want to let you know that we have Dyed Starling Skins available now


The time of the year is upon us again to restock all of our fly boxes and to purchase the new flies that have been so successful during the season. We are particularly proud of the Tan Wulff this year and our versions of the Stripper Midge and the Split Case PMD Nymph. The Flashback Golden Crawler, the Flashback Pheasanttail Nymph, the Tan Wulff, and the Rockhold Sulfur Emerger were great producers on the Holston River as well as the Clinch, the South Holston, and the Watauga Rivers. The Tan Wulff has produced better than any dry fly that we have fished on the South Holston River. We tie it in tan, yellow, and sulfur orange to imitate all the different colors we see on this river. The Rockhold Sulfur Emerger has been the top producing fly on the South Holston River and the Smoky Mountain Blackbird Softhackle has been the premium fly on the mountain streams. You will want to try the South Holston Miracle Midge on all of the tailwaters.
We know that you will want to direct your spouse's attention to the Gift sets for a very special Christmas Gift. They are already selling at a good pace so get your order in right away.

What a great season! We updated our fly pages with new patterns in several categories and we have had the opportunity to test many of these flies.. Be sure to look at the new patterns that we have placed on our new Wet Flies Page, as well as lots of new selections on the Tailwaters Fly Page. Wet flies and Softhackles were the method that I first learned to fish by, many years ago. It is now making a comeback and I look forward to helping many of you make good choices from our selections that are tried and proven. An example of one of our spectacular wet flies is the Smoky Mountain Blackbird Softhackle. This fly has turned out to be one of the best to be found in the Southeast.
