Samuel Looper

Sam has been tying flies for 9 years, focusing on TN trout initially, and then moving on to large predator fish.  He specializes in large streamers for smallmouth bass, striped bass, and muskelunge.  He ties by blending the styles of Bob Popovics and Blane Chocklett, creating truly unique and creative patterns. “I’ve learned through the years, that nothing can replace time spent on the water.  There is no book one can read or video that one can watch that will replace the experience.  This is true in every aspect of life.  Put the time in, and you will get results.  Sometimes good, sometimes bad, but those results fuel the need to pursue more.”   Sam Looper Holding His Catch
