We like to tie flies.  We like to catch fish on the flies we tie.

Our goal is to publish fly recipes and patterns that our club members, the local fishing guides, and our friends tie and use.

The recipes here have been sorted into two kinds of groups: insect imitated and fly type. Some flies will be in two or more groups. For example, the Adams is a Mayfly imitation dry fly; so it can be found in both the Mayflies group and the Dry Flies group.

We hope you will tie and fish some, or all, of these patterns.
