Today is the first anniversary of our J. Stockard blog, Thoughts On The Fly. We’ve had a wonderful first year with lots of inspirational writing about fly tying, fly fishing and life in general. If you haven’t checked out our regular contributors, please do!

mike cline introductoryMike Cline is a man of many talents and AVID fly fisher living in Bozeman, MT. His inspirational yet down-to-earth pieces range from how to sell excess fly tying materials (junk) on eBay to reports of his many day trips to Yellowstone and beyond. If you’re a geography and topography geek like we are, you’ll really enjoy one of our favorite posts, Nature at Work – New Waters. Read all of Mike’s posts here.


eunanhendron_cropEunan Hendron is a classic fly tyer who started tying flies around the age of 12 to fish still water winter competitions in Northern Ireland with his dad. His creations are all true works of art and he has a wonderful way of making his unique skill and talent seem accessible to any of us. Check out his post, Tying In Hand. You may not give up your vise anytime soon but you’ll be amazed what Eunan can do without one. Find all his posts here.


Michael_Vorhis 2Mike Vorhis lives, writes, fly fishes and follows his adventurist spirit in California and beyond. From in-depth product reviews to practical fly fishing advice, Mike provides plenty of fly fishing insight and is always a great read.
