Frequently asked questions
Which hooks do you use?
I use Gamakatsu B10S for any pattern that requires a 2/0 or smaller, and Ahrex PR320 for anthing larger than a 2/0. If you'd like to request a different brand or style of hook, let me know!
How long will my order take?
Each and every fly is tied to order, meaning it is tied specifically for you! That being said, the current lead time is 2 weeks, so they should arrive to your door in about 3 weeks!
How long have you been tying?
I started fly-fishing when I was about 13 and tying when I was around 16. However, I only tied a handful of simple patterns (crawfish imitiations, foam frogs, etc.) until about a year ago when I discovered all of the incredible tyers on Instagram. After getting some much needed inspiration, I began tying every day.
What species are your flies designed for?
My flies are primarily tied to imitate baitfish, which means any fish that eats other fish is at risk of a lip piercing by Filthy Flies. I primarily fish for bass and pike, but I've tied flies for salmon, bull trout, bonefish, Murray cod, and the list goes on. The sky is the limit.
