Castaway Flies

Castaway Flies ... Tie One On!



This site is dedicated to fly fishing, fly tying, and the men and women who enjoy doing both.  I have been blessed with a number of people who have shared much of their knowledge on the topic of fly fishing, both on the water and on the vise. I've shared many emotions; helping an 11-year-old make the perfect cast to catch and release a huge brown on a small stream; walking off the river skunked one day, going home that night to tie a fly that would match that hatch that skunked me, finally to catch over 20 fish the next day.

This site is my attempt to give something back. I hope as you peruse the links, you will gain some knowledge, and share some of my emotions on my adventures, both on the water and at the vise.

Recently I’ve been doing golden stone flies. A staple in most Vermont rivers so should be in you fly box as well. This particular pattern was introduced to me by Wes Butler, a guide from the past turned warden. Pronounced wing cases and UV ice dub makes this fly different from others and very attractive to trout. I have incorporated those differences into my black stone fly nymphs with similar good production.
