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.

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.
