Our Approach

Using flies tied to the entomology of the river, with the least amount of polluting materials helps to leave the river the way it was when we stepped in to fly fish.
We are local business owners and have a stake in keeping the river ecologically sound.

Our Story

We discovered the Lower Mountain Fork River in 2007 after fly fishing from Banff Canada to the Appalachians. After years of numerous visits, and a term and 1/2 on the board of the Lower Mountain Fork River Foundation we decided in 2015 to make the area our home. Locally, as land/business owners we have a personal stake in keeping the trout waters better off each and everyday.


Together we are exploring the outdoors and nature.

I was raised in the Catskills Mountains fishing the east coast best streams streams such as the Beaverkill east and west branch of the Delaware rivers. Started fly fishing at age 11 and tying flies since I was 14. Since then I have fished almost all of North America and plan to complete that task before I die. I started tying Catskill pattern dry flies at the beginning and then nymphs since I knew I could catch more trout with nymphs. Since then I have developed many patterns and continue to do so. Many of which are on my web site Tied2fly.com. Presently I am guiding on the Lower Mountain Fork River with Beavers Bend Fly Fishing Guide Service ™ and Chris Schatte.
