About Us

The San Juan River is one of the most highly rated trout fisheries in the U.S. -  Rainbow & Brown trout that average 16" to 18" (20" to 24" Rainbows are not uncommon) make this a favorite destination of fly fisherman. After discovering this scenic “catch and release only” fishery, compliments of a trip provided by my best friend, I decided to retire to Aztec from Southern California and pursue my passion for fly fishing full time. I was fortunate to fish the San Juan River for 8 years with close to 400 outings to the river. I've since relocated to North Carolina to be near my kids and grandkids

SanJuanRiverFlies.com resulted from my hobby and passion - enticing a trout that has seen countless flies to take one of my hand tied offerings. Upon hearing about my fly fishing success in retirement, my friends and family encouraged me to offer these flies to the public. To that end, I am sure you will find my hand tied quality flies a real bargain when all you really want is what really works.

FYI: I am constantly experimenting with different patterns and sizes under different situations, so check back from time to time to see my new offerings. Also, feel free to email me with comments or special requests for different sizes or colors in any of the patterns.
