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.
