Esox custom flies

As you can see the old boy is no mug in front of a fly tying stand either. Every one of the pike from yesterdays post were caught on these flies especially the long tailed streamers. He says he’s always creating new flies and has 3 or 4 new ones that he’ll be testing this summer in Canada……One he says is really unique. I’ve heard murmurings through the grape vines that a new book on Pike flies is being penned as you read by well known Dutch Pike author & Fly-fisherman, and am sure you will see one or two of Rowland’s creations featured on its pages in the future.

He does sell his flies under “Esox custom Flies”, unfortunately he doesn’t have a website well not that I’ve been able to find, but I’m sure you can email him with an enquiry or an order once he gets back from New Zealand in a few weeks fly-fishing for trout.
