Overview

I have been tying flies for over ten years during which time I have been tying patterns that cover variety of different environments and species. These range from baitfish imitations for coho and coastal cutthroat in the saltwater, small dry flies and nymphs for native cutthroat high in the Rocky Mountains and goddy swinging flies for winter steelhead along the Pacific coast. This page will feature new patterns that a have added, or links to instructions for archived flies.
