I have started to update several of the older pages I did a few years ago. Pages marked with are either new pages or newly updated with new pictures. I hope you enjoy them.
For the Past 6-7 Years, I have posted these FREE patterns on this page. I stay open and function as a business if you buy stuff. If you want to see more free stuff, more patterns from me you need to actually buy things. This is expensive and time consuming to make and maintain these pages.

You can actually buy the stuff I use to make these flies in the catalog section of this site. You click on the Order Info Page to buy these items. I also have some kits made up for some of the flies listed with all of the materials you need to make the flies.

HELP Keep me Open by Buying Something!
