John P. Newbury is an American fly tying craftsman tying and selling fishing flies and selected tying materials related to Euro-Tactical nymphing techniques.

New! UV Tracer Squirrel Dubbing
3.50

It’s finally HERE! I’ve been hand mixing this blend for far too long. Natures Spirit UV Tracer Squirrel Flash Dub is everything and something more!

Squirrel dubbing is in high demand because its guard hair makes excellent legs and gills for your dubbing blends.

This UV dyed squirrel dubbing comes with added flash. This will save us a couple of tying steps letting you tie more flies instead of hand mixing your dubbing.

  • May 15, 2019 - I am starting to fill the fly bins with all you will need for your summer season. New inventory will be listed as it becomes available. Follow me on instagram for product updates.

  • Food for thought

    • After tracking my land vs. loss statistics for the previous three seasons with specific hook models under close scrutiny, I have made the determination that I will now only tie my Czech Nymphs on Hanak model #333. I will be passing that benefit along to you with flies and hooks you can you trust.

    • Black matte beads look sexy, However, I believe they appear larger optically to the fish that an equivalent sized reflective bead. Billiard players refer to large and small balls based on optical size, striped balls appear smaller than solid balls? reflective beads have stripes caused by the specular highlights from above AKA the sky, and they also reflect the surrounding colors. Dark reflective beads are as stealthy as you can get; ergo, I sell few matte beaded flies.
      What do you think? Please share your opinions or questions with me.

  • Did you know? You don’t have to fish euro-style to fish my flies. jigs are killer suspended under an indicator. Steelheaders out there know all about this. I do it.

  • Did you also know, stillwater anglers are discovering how effective my jigs are? They are, I have many repeat stillwater customers.

  • I am adding Colorado Front Range friendly patterns and sizes to the shop over the course of the season. These patterns are equally effective in the Wasatch range in Utah.

  • Deschutes River bound anglers will get a fly category devoted just to them. Afterall, that was my home river for the better part of my life. Just hit that big ol Deschutes River in the tag cloud.

  • Whiting dyed CDL tailing packs and CDL hen capes are HERE. These are the best feather I have ever tied with and are gorgeous on tactical patterns.

  • Follow me on instagram to get the latest inventory additions. I list ‘em here before the social media blasts.
