Upcoming Shows!


2012 marks the 8th year that I've been doing shows.

And as always, I always look forward to seeing old friends and hopefully seeing a few new faces. As with every year, I'll have the same wide selection to pick through and even a few new offerings to tempt even the most seasoned feather addict!

See you there!

We're pack'n em up and heading for your town!

On the Road in 2012!

The 2012 show season was a HUGE sucess! I ran into so many old friends and made a lots of new ones. I was especially surprised to see so many new people just getting started tying flies.

For those of you who might of missed something or need a certain color, I'll be in the shop this summer so please feel free and call anytime.

I hope to hear from you and look forward to running into you in 2013!

Thanks Again,
