Our Mission:    

Started in 2000, we are a specialty company that caters to fly tiers and fly-fishers.  Our goal is to provide several products and services that allow you to have a more positive fly-tying and / or  fly-fishing experience.  Please enjoy our website!

Our Products & Services:

All of our specialty products and services are made and offered with "you" in mind.  And, every product is made one-at-a-time and in the United State of America.  We spend quite a bit of time searching suppliers, vendors and other sources for the highest quality materials available.  

Our Promise:

We stand behind our products and services.  Can we guarantee that our flies will catch fish or you will learn how to tie a realistic stonefly imitation in thirty minutes- NO!  However, we are people-people and we want to know if you need assistance or if your expectations have not been satisfied.  We promise to work with you to make things better!   Contact us anytime.


Chris Helm Memorial Fly-Tying Fund

With the passing of our very close friend and mentor- Chris Helm in 2014, we have started the Chris Helm Memorial Fly-Tying Fund.    The plan is to contribute a percentage from sales of our "Fly-Kit product, instructional DVD's, presentation & speaking fees, fly-tying workshop fees and instructional guiding fees into a fund.   Then, several times a year, use the funds to purchase items and make a gift to fly-tiers in need of materials, tools, hooks, threads, tools- etc.    Perhaps one of Chris' greatest qualities was his never ending quest to help others in the art & sport.  We can't think of a better way to continue his legacy and generosity.

If you have a shop or company and wish to make a donation of an item to our fund for the purpose of future gifting to a recipient in Chris' name- just contact us.
