I can’t remember the first fish I ever caught, but it wasn’t with a fly, and it wasn’t on a river, I’m sure of that. I can still remember my first fly caught river fish, and I remember thinking that was the coolest experience ever. Since then an addiction has developed. I now spend more days than I care to admit on the rivers of the western US. The majority of my fishing occurs right here in the state of Utah, where the publicity of my favorite rivers is small, and the trout are large and plentiful.
As my knowledge and addiction have grown, fly tying easily became an additional appendage to my hobby. With that in mind Derek and myself started Fly Tying 123 as a way to share that which we have found to be useful and enjoyable. Whether its tying to refill one of my fly boxes, or tying specific patterns for an upcoming trip, there are always more flies to tie. I hope you enjoy our site, and find it useful in helping out with your tying and fly fishing adventures.
