   This site is dedicated to the Midwestern fly fisher and the fly tiers of the world.

or tying the "perfect" fly, I hope you find something useful and entertaining in these pages.

and will help everyone, even those who don't wish to book a guide, plan a trip to Wisconsin's Driftless Region or prime steelhead/salmon rivers.
   I'm very happy to announce that I have joined theScott Rod Company Pro Staff.
Working with a top end company that understands rod design for everything from our
intimate little creeks through salt water monsters, & everything in between is exciting.
I am also associated with AirFlo Lines, & Waterworks/Lamson Reels.
   This site will be updated as conditions & hatches change during the fishing season. Suggestions & constructive criticism are always welcome.

   2021-2022 licenses & stamps expired on March 31.
   There are warm rainy days in the forecast,
so stocking up on BWOs, #16 tan caddis, & even #18 black caddis is a good bet.
   An hour or two of morning nymphing while the wter warms can be followed by hatch activity,
possibly followed by a spinner fall,so watch for a change in the rise form.
April really has arrivedin the southern driftless.
