Until relatively recently Rocky was a inveterate cowboy. A few years ago an injury sidelined him and he eventually found his way to fly tying to pass the time. He's since become an incredible fly tyer and is an officer of the Central Oregon Fly Tyers Guild.

From Chris:

With regards to fly tying and fishing, I have done both since I was 9-years-old. Even with my rather limited math skills, I believe that translates to 40 years experience. Although I do fish and tie nymphs, my true passion is for dry fly-fishing, especially of the very small variety. Favorite hatches involve fishing baetis, midges, and tricos. I look upon fly-tying as a continually evolving process with new materials and new twists on old ties and methods emerging all of the time. My philosophy as a fly-tier is that tying is really a way of problem-solving. I spend a great deal of time on streams and lakes with much time being spent simply as an observer of entomology and nature. I try to come up with patterns that fit different situations, try to be innovative in the creation of flies to solve different problems, and I also try to learn from other individuals in order to be a better tier and fisherman.
While I certainly would not consider myself a famous tier or fly fisherman, I have been demonstrating fly-tying at expos (including the tremendous East Idaho Expo), fly club meetings, for community groups, and in shops for about the last eight years. Some of my flies have also been featured in Fly Fish America, and I am currently a member of Whiting's Pro Team. Also, I am currently producing a line of dry fly and emerger patterns that will be marketed by Riverborn Flies in 2010.
Over the years, I have been helped by many people to improve my skills as a tier and fly fisherman, and to those folks I owe a great debt of gratitude. I truly love this sport and as I grow to be a mature member of the fly tying and fishing community, it is one of my goals to pass on a little of the knowledge I have accumulated over the years.

Dan Delekta started Fly fishing when he was ten years old, encouraged by his dad, who owned sporting goods stores in upstate New York. Dan grew up fishing in the Adirondack Mountains. His passion for trout and steelhead fly fishing eventually led him far from New York, to Montana, Idaho, Wyoming, Washington, Oregon, and British Columbia. He moved to West Yellowstone at age 22.

Dan began tying flies when he was ten years old. He has designed over 200 patterns of flies that are the trademark Delektable™ collection utilizing both traditional and new age materials. His fly patterns are now tied by Riverborn Fly Company in Boise Idaho and supplied nationally. His passion for fly tying is as strong now as it has ever been. He is constantly thinking about, designing, tying, and field testing his new designs in the great Madison River just outside his door and other rivers he guides including the Big Hole, Beaverhead, Ruby, Missouri, Stillwater, Yellowstone, and Big Horn Rivers. Dan loves to make stuff and started building rods in 1975. He now constructs custom graphite, fiberglass, and bamboo rods at the shop. He started Beartooth Flyfishing in 1982, constructing Made in Montana braided leaders, hand-tied leaders, and fly rods.

Dan has access to an apartment, car, and flats boat on Andros Island in the Bahamas. He spends a good amount of winter time fishing the salt for Bonefish and many other saltwater species. He has an opportunity to design and test his saltwater patterns while on Andros Island.

Dan has guided in Montana’s trophy rivers for over 25 years. He built the Beartooth Flyfishing lodge in 1989, with the help of friends. He greatly values the friendships he has built over the years. His love of the mountains, the solitude, and the peace is exceeded by his appreciation of all the people who have treated him like family. Dan loves fly fishing and all the challenges and rewards it brings. He looks forward to continuing to innovate, to being in touch with nature, and to continuing to bring the joys of fly fishing and deeper knowledge of fly fishing to even more people.
