The tactical revolution began long ago in the European competition fly fishing circuit and as the methods have improved, so has the popularity of fishing with them around the world. Modern tactical fly patterns have also evolved to best suit the various methods now being used on the competition circuit. I am pleased to offer several fly patterns that have been evolving throughout the better part of the last fifteen years that I have been exploring the European tactics. Some flies are new while others battle tested. Through trial, error and continual development -- not to mention thousands of hours actually fishing with them -- the patterns I am offering are the best performers and all are personally tied by me. I am confident that you will catch a lot of fish while using them.
