Tactical Nymph Fly Shop
Food for thought - 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.

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. Equally effective in the Wasatch range in Utah. Find a tag cloud and hit front range.
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.

The Fly Bin Shortcuts
Euro Sighter with integrated tippet rings.
My favorite nymphing rigs now incorporate a 6" bi-colored sighters. Two-tone neon coloring and markings provide amazing visual feedback and tactile sensitivity in all fishing conditions.
I have been using and testing this sighter for several seasons now. I am confident in my updated methods of construction and materials that you will now be receiving the highest quality product possible. I have shortened the length to a mere 6", an ideal length for almost every fishing situation I have encountered. I now make them more durable with a method of bonding that is both lightweight and flexible. I am very picky about the tippet rings. I have tested many tippet rings available and have now chosen a very select few that I trust will be strong and smooth keeping your finest tippet strong.
I use these for long line french nymphing on larger rivers where distance, accuracy and sensitivity count. Dress the length of the sighter with floatant and they will float well during the upstream portion of the drift.
I have been using these while guiding new fly anglers and have had many beginners start catching within the first 15 minutes on guided trips. More and more anglers and guides are choosing my sighters for thier tactical angling needs.
