Josh Stanish is a tyer from Bozeman, MT. Find out more about Josh by going to Biggie's Bugs

Josh grew up in the mountains of Colorado and watched a world class resort grow from the ground up. His passion for fishing got started at a young age when his father would take him camping in the flat top wilderness. When he was about 10 he found an old spin/flyfish combo rod and headed to the river. He has been completely consumed with the sport ever since. Upon graduating High School he headed north to the great state of Montana. He attended college between his days on the Madison, Yellowstone and Gallatin Rivers.

"I fell in love with fly fishing as a young boy when I found on old Eagle Claw Spin/Flyfish combo rod in my neighbors garage. Armed with the rod, reel filled with only backing and a prince nymph I jumped on my bike and made the 5 mile trek down the gravel road to the Eagle River. I caught and landed two brown trout and have been a fly fishing addict since the first fish ate my fly."

You can also contact Josh for custom fly orders.
"Biggie’s Bugs Custom Flies is a small side business that I operate during the winter months as a way to make a few extra dollars to supplement my busy summer of guide income. For years I have tied flies commercially for local shops and my guide clients. This is not a full time year round job for me, but I really enjoy fly tying and hope to pass along my skills to others through this site. My goal is to offer flies that I have personally developed over the years, custom tie any concotion that someone is looking for and offer standard issue patterns as well. "
