North River Flies

Some of my fly tying supplies
 Today is a quick post for anyone out there who may be interested.  I have decided to sell some of the flies that I tie.  I love to tie and do it almost every night.  It has become a creative outlet and something relaxing for me to do while watching TV with my wife.  Other than a couple of fly swaps and giving flies away to friends and family, I have begun to accumulate flies that I may not get the chance to use.  New flies still require supplies to make them and cost money. Therefore. I have decided to sell some of them to offset the money used to purchase materials and maybe even make a few dollars to be used towards the purchase of a couple of Tenkara rods.  I ask that if you or anyone else that you know might be interested that you please take a peek at my new site North River Flies.  I have posts on the site that explain what I will be offering and how you can purchase them.  Thanks.


  1. Is that Uni Thread?
    If so how do you like it?

  2. Brk Trt, on the right in the picture is Uni-Thread. I like it lot. It's inexpensive and durable. Most of all I like some of the colors offered. I prefer to use Pearsall's silks but they do not produce all of the colors I like to use. However when it comes to black, I always use the Uni-Thread. It would become a little on the expensive side to use the silk at the rate I use it.

  3. Good luck with your new venture. (And I really do mean that.)

    And I agree with you on the Pearsall's. I wish they still made blue.

  4. Very nice. I'm sure you'll do well with your new venture, especially in tenkara circles.

  5. Chris and Troutrageous, Thanks very much. If I manage to sell a few flies I'll be happy. If not, oh well! I'll keep tying all the same. I'm kinda of addicted to it.
