According to his mother, Dave began fishing with an actual fly while backpacking in Idaho's Sawtooth Mountains. Such trips were an inspiration for Dave. Returning home, he would scrounge materials and begin tying. This teenage hobby continued after high school as Dave perfected his famous patterns. Teaming with Ken McGee and others, Dave began commercial fly tying in 1977. In addition to owning a Boise fly shop for seventeen years, his efforts and skill earned international awards for his exceptional flies. The accolades continued in another facet of Dave's involvement with fishing, as he has guided senators, ambassadors, media personnel, entertainers and hundreds of "everyday anglers." In yet another direction, Dave attended Mel Kreiger's famous casting school and was certified Fly Fishing Federation Flycasting Instructor. The list goes on: Dave has studied fly casting under Joan Wulff, worked with school districts to develop fishing programs, and mastered single-handed and spey casting. If it involves flies and fish, Dave has done it.

After departing from the retail venue of fly fishing, Dave met and married fellow fly fisherwoman, Rhonda Price, due to popular demand they began their guiding operation, "Dreams on the Fly". Combining their love of the sport, as well as the passion for sharing the sport with others, they guide people from all over the world on the Grande Ronde, Owyhee and numerous other rivers considered Blue Ribbon waters of the west. Featured in Forbes magazine as one the the premier guides in the Northwest(See Article Here), they primarily guide for steelhead, brown and rainbow trout, and small mouth bass. Dreams on the Fly specializes in daily, 3 and 5 day float trips with an emphasis on offering the customer an experience of a lifetime. "You just need to have your waders and boots and we'll take care of the rest".

The Weekly Fly

There are plenty of fly tyers who have filmed themselves tying a fly in their basement with a handy cam and posted it on places like YouTube. Ours are different in quality. In quality of tyers, quality of flies tied, and quality of production value of the video, and also in quantity. We want to be THE source for free fly tying videos. We will be adding a fly recipe a week until there are no more. We will also be making our free library searchable by fly type and fly tyer and organized in a way that makes it more useful than doing queries on the net and digging through various other sites. We hope you enjoy.
