I've spent 30+ years guiding clients, and fishing myself, searching for triggers that will get my clients that next memorable fish. Only time on the water observing fish behavior will allow you to see what positively or negatively triggers fish to eat. I can say that it's obvious to me that Matt has put in the time, and most importantly, has the talent and ability to put the two together and deliver flies that will make lasting memories!
What can I say more than Matt's fly tying abilities are second to none when it comes to predator patterns. I would highly recommend any of his patterns, but especially his muskie and pike flies. Matt's personal knowledge of these fish is portrayed in each and every one of his creations. Understanding what triggers a muskie to eat, his Yard Sale pattern is a personal favorite, and I don't go muskie fishing without a good selection.
Matt's flies and unique tying style sets him apart from the pack. The craftsmanship is second only to the insane walk the dog action some of his patterns. His experience and knowledge is obvious in the flies he designs and ties. You can tell his patterns have been tested through hours on the water. Matt's flies are a must have for the predator fly box!
