Hi, I am Chase and I am 12. I run and own Eagle Creek Custom Flies. Eagle Creek Custom Flies is a kid run and kid owned business. I tie quality flies in the USA. We are here for you when you need to gear up for another trip or you need a custom fly. What is a custom fly? It is a fly pattern or color you can't find. We have a custom fly motto, "You want it, we will tie it." eaglecreekcustom.com

Thank for your support and have fun fishing.
Chase

There was another youngster here on the TFF years ago that did the same thing. I believe Malik (May-Lick) was his name and Flies by Night was the name of his business. I could be wrong on the guys name. I think he ended up making enough to pay for college, or at least a good portion of it. I forget who his dad is but he is here on the TFF as well.

If you get a chance to find the Flies by Night guy, it would be worth your time in a phone call to pick his brain about providing this kind of service and doing it on the TFF. He may have some thoughts as to "what he wished he would have done" that may help you. Years ago Flies by Night had a lot of business on the whites, striper, hybrids pages (hint hint). You might find someone there who knows how to find him.

Good luck thumb

Agree with Holzer


I used to buy from Malik but tie my own now. There is a demand for flies in the whites stripers hybrid section. [Linked Image]
