Checked my phone last night and saw some likes on Instagram from a name I didn’t recognize. Wolfgang Man / Beast. Weird. Intrigued I start looking through their photos. Dogs. Fly fishing. Skateboarding. Sweet designs. Hell yes, I dig this. I dig this a lot. I hit up their website. Scanning through I see Natas…Read details
Last night was the second Tie One On at People’s and it was a good time! Big thanks to the folks who showed up. I had a blast talking fishing and flies with some of my favorite people. Can’t wait til next week. If you’re in Lafayette on Monday and wanna tie flies, drink a…Read details
We hit 30 degrees this week. Hot damn it’s a heat wave! I woke up and had a few things to do. Tie flies, write something about smallmouth, and my wife told me to wash the sheets. The sheets weren’t dirty, they’ve only been on the bed a week. I sat down at my tying…Read details

If you don’t tie or don’t even fish, show up anyways, someone will teach you! In the next few months we’ll be hosting an Iron…Read details
You like surprises? I like surprises. Zane Porter from Fly Fishing Ruins Lives knocked it out the park with a painting he just did. I tied a small for big smallies. Same pattern I used all summer for the donks, but I swapped out bucktail in place of the craft fur. I posted it on…Read details
