About Us

Customer needs and creativity are what drives our product selection.  The stories and pictures that customers share with us drive enthusiasm for this wonderfully creative aspect of Fly Fishing.  We add new products often and customer requests are always welcomed. 

Owner Mike, an avid tier, enjoys everything about fly fishing. His knowledge and interest in angling has been built over decades as a fisherman, rod builder and restorer, and now as a tier and teacher. Mike processes all the deer hair and dyes the buck tails in house. He designed and builds our popular Zonker cutter and jig as well.

Nancy handles the shop operations and answers the phone. She comes from a family of outdoor enthusiasts and anglers. She volunteered with Trout Unlimited Youth Camp and enjoys shipping orders.

Ellen Machiele does the marketing and community outreach for the shop. Graphics, social media and newsletters as well as connecting with industry partners.

The team has built a strong and successful business through a dedication to quality, local networks of tiers and community service. Since taking over the business in 2014, an online shopping cart and web channel allowed us to reach a diverse community of tiers. Our comprehensive inventory reflects this. Whether tying something as small as a Trout fly or the largest Muskie flies, as well as the beautifully artistic Atlantic Salmon Flies— we have a wide range of products for everyone.
