The Redfish Bug March 20 2017

Fly fishing for redfish is a challenging yet rewarding experience. Tides, weather, clouds, water clarity, air pressure, moon cycle, wind direction, sometimes it seems as if all these factors play into if you will catch a redfish on the fly or not. A majority of the time it seems as if these conditions are all conspiring against you. So you got your boat, possibly a guide, your 8wt rod and reel...

A Sneaky Trick to add Noise to your Flies December 06 2016

There are a few ways to add noise to a fly to imitate a rattle that you would hear in a crank bait. But most of them are clunky cumbersome and just down right inconvenient. The first method and probably the one most think of is adding an actual fly rattle while you are tying. These little glass or plastic cylinders are anything but slim and anything but convenient. You...

Improving your fly patterns January 27 2016

Well about a year ago I created my version of a Blue Crab Fly Pattern and I was quite happy with it. Only issue was the fact that they were a pain to tie. Between laminating pheasant rump feathers together to create the carapace of the crab and multiple steps of UV Molding the crab claws my hatred for this fly increased. My original goal for this fly was to...

The 2015 WNC Fly Expo December 09 2015

Okay so I think our heads have stopped spinning. The 2015 WNC Fly Expo is over, and what a weekend! Any exhibitor can tell you the planning and anxiety going into a show is always way more than ever needed. But the show went off without a hitch, and we were able to meet many great new faces and of course get our flies into the hands of some eager...

The Clouser minnow and its forgotten powers. December 01 2015

             Fly fishing and fly tying has greatly advanced in that past few years. New fly tying materials have opened the door for fly tiers to take their imaginations to the next level. Fly tiers have taken on a Dr. Frankenstein role when creating these new flies, rubber fins sutured onto the skeleton of multiple hook shanks followed by a mix of body fibers and UV flash all capped by a...

Columbia SC not your usual fly fishing destination March 14 2015

Fly Fishing Columbia SC   When thinking about going fly fishing in South Carolina usually two places come to mind, first heading to the upstate to get on some great trout action in the hills, second heading down to the low country to get on some tailing reds out in the flats. But I am here to tell you that you would be a fool to skip over the midlands....

Fly Fishing the Green River NC February 16 2015

      We are very happy to announce that we have brought on a new guide service to our Preferred Guide Program. Trout Hunters Guide Service based out of North Carolina is a very unique guide service to the area as they not only use single hand fly rods but they also utilize spey rods on trout waters not normally fished with such measures.        So Jess and I had to...

Redfish Fly Patterns January 14 2015

So you want to go after some redfish huh? Well I will skip over all the bullshit poetic mamajama about tails glistening in the reeds, the silent sound of your loops when chucking a fly within inches of a red fishes face, and get down to the nitty gritty of pulling a redfish on board. In general I will be discussing tactics for fly fishing for redfish along the South...

Largemouth Bass on the fly July 06 2014

What's up fishing friends well were back from the trip up to New York to visit family and friends and of course fish! Thought I would share a few pics and tactics I used to target bass in still water like the ponds I fished. First off if you're tying you don't have to be super precise, no need for spots and eyes on your frog poppers. Bass tend to...

Fly Fishing in Columbia, SC June 25 2014

    It has been a while since I have posted. However since the last time I have been able to explore Columbia, South Carolina much more. Coming from a Western New York, where the creeks seem to be endless compared to the unknown of a new city, I was nervous the fishing was not going to be as promising. That was not the case, since moving I have been able...

The Redneck Trout April 18 2014

Spring is here and summer is soon to follow, for those in the Western New York area the spring steelhead season was less than desirable with snowfall and rain in April, there were very limited days to get out. Soon if not already the tribs will be filling up with suckers and bass signaling the end of another steelie season. But if the tug is your drug don't fret there is another option....

The journey March 11 2014

I wanted to begin by thanking everyone who has supported us and to everyone who has visited the site and has spread the word about Steelie Bros Fly Co. Almost a year ago now I started this idea of Steelie Bros Fly Co. I figured that if something like fly fishing and fly tying has inspired such a deep love and obsession in me that I needed to share that....
