    Started tying flies a little over a month ago after being bitten by the fly fishing bug back in October. Learning a little bit more everyday and TG for YouTube!! My wife thinks I've lost my mind, since I now have gear for just about every type of fishing there is! LOL

    Take it easy on me....100% self taught but having a blast!

    It's tiny creek near where I live in Santa Paula. Unfortunately, I think the drought took its toll on the little wild trout that lived there. Years ago, I used to take an ultralight and pinch the barbs down on the smallest Panther Martins they made and would routinely C&R double digits on my hike up to the falls. Super bummed I didn't see a single fish in the pools. Hopefully, a few made it and they'll recover in a few years. Fingers crossed.....

    Nice bugs !

    Learn how to tie the Flashtail Clouser on a 60 degree jig hook.
    Probably the most versatile saltwater fly a guy can have in the box.

    Been a while....so far the fly fishing fever hasn’t relented. A few of my latest ties just for fun. Next is prepping for Pyramid towards the end of March.

    Ridiculously awesome. Love the shad imitations for stripers and salt water flies.
