Practical Flies for Discerning Anglers

Three Great Reasons to purchase flies from

Shadcreek Flies:​​

1. Quality flies tied by a NH craftsman who appreciates Fly Fishing traditions, history, and having fun on the water.

2. Custom orders are welcome. Do you have a special, or one of a kind, fly from your father or grandfather that is no longer available?  I can replicate that pattern for you.

3. I can provide assistance in selecting the flies to meet your fishing needs, whether that is for your local streams or for those fishing adventures to far away places.

The rivers and streams of northern New England are very special to me.  I particularly enjoy the waters whose very names spark the imagination and combine the history and traditions of New England fly fishing with the challenges facing today's anglers - Upper Connecticut, Rapid, Magalloway, Moose, Roach, East Outlet (headwaters of the Kennebec) and the West Branch of the Penobscot.

Shadcreek Flies is one way in which I can share what I have learned about flies, fly tying and fly fishing.  Every fly that I offer is personally tied by me.  In addition to offering individual patterns to anglers who know just what they want, I also offer selections of flies that have proven to be very successful.  Let me know where you are fishing and I can help select the flies that will meet your fishing needs.
