We're dedicated to fly fishing education

Welcome to our website, dedicated to the teaching of fly fishing basics, swapping stories, tying your own flies, leader making and, of course, fly rod building for which we're know worldwide! We have become an international leader in helping folks to do what we call "flycraft," which is make their own flies and make their own rods with our help. As you know, we have a web store, which has become one of the most popular destination for for folks 'fishing' on the web to purchase the highest quality products available, often at a more reasonable price than our competition.


Each month, we showcase a different fish,with full description, drawing and even flies that can be used to catch the fish. This feature is written by Peter "Trout" Thompson. Peter is one of the foremost experts on fish and fly fishing in North America. October 2015 "Fish of the Month" is Sauger. Click here to read about the Sauger.

Finished building the Rod, cast a white wooly bugger with no issue and it feels great. Thanks again for a great fiberglass kit. The black thread and guides just makes the rod stands out! This will be my new favorite rod!
