CLASSIC GREAT LAKES FLY PATTERNS

    In 2019, Ray began to see a need to have one place where people could go to learn the history and tying methods of the most well known flies of the Great Lakes region. With the help of a friend, he began creating a video series highlighting these classic flies. These videos can be found by subscribing to his YouTube channel HERE. You can also go directly to the individual fly patterns below.

 

    The response has been so overwhelmingly positive that he will also be publishing a high quality reference manual with detailed history and tying instructions for all of the flies. New flies and information will be added periodically in a three ring binder format. Stay tuned!
