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.

Copper John

If you don’t know me, I’m not a social media guy. I’m not a computer guy! The reason why, you ask? I spent much time fishing and hunting as a young man and not keeping up with technology. I am getting better and I really want to learn, but the time I spend writing a post, I could be fishing. Anyway, I love to give back when I can, so I’ll keep learning and posting stuff I hope everyone enjoys reading.

deer hair bass/pike flies

The fly club got together finally this past Wednesday. Everyone was tying bass and pike flies. There I sat tying #16 copper johns. I’m still trying to fill some last minute orders for trout and add to my own trout box. I eventually tied a couple poppers for lake and pond bass fishing. I’ve been doing more bass and pike fishing over the years. John Synnott and I have joined up once again for the Ditch Pickel Classic as team Castaway. We’ll be looking to back up our 6 place rookie season last year, so I will be putting some quality time into bass flies soon.
