Gentlemen, thread your bobbins.
We love tying articulated flies and if you ask us, winter is one of the best times of year to whip them up at the vise. We’ve seen more and more photos on social media of amazing articulated flies tied by tyers like you with shanks from the Flymen Articulated Shank family.
The flies we’ve seen are just the tip of the iceberg, so we’re holding a fly tying contest on Instagram to help you show off your patterns to the world and give you the chance to win grand prizes from Renzetti, Taylor Fly Fishing, and Ahrex Hooks as well as weekly Flymen prize packs!
Orvis had to get in on the fun as well. If you take part in voting in the final round to decide the winner you’ll have the chance to win a Helios3 Fly Rod!

Enter your email for the chance to win a Fishpond Sushi Roll Streamer Holder filled with a dozen Double Barrel Bass Bugs!
We’ve teamed up with Fishpond to give away 5 of their Sushi Roll Streamer Holders filled with a dozen Surface Seducer Double Barrel Bass Bug poppers each!
Streamers finally have a place to call home without being crushed, smashed, flattened, and put to bed wet without having a chance to dry.
The Fishpond Sushi Roll is an innovative solution for a conveniently sized carry system to protect and store streamer flies for easy viewing and selection. When not rolled, it lays flat as a working platform, but when rolled a spacial dimension between layers gives streamers the necessary space to breathe.
Add a little rice and it would almost look good enough to eat!

The Faux Bucktail Throwdown.
Since launching our new Fish-Skull Faux Bucktail, we’ve seen more and more photos of amazing flies tied by people like you on social media.
The flies we’ve seen are just the tip of the iceberg, so we’re holding a fly tying contest on Instagram to help you show off your patterns to the world and give you the chance to win grand prizes from Thomas & Thomas Fly Rods, Hareline Dubbin, and Loon Outdoors as well as weekly Flymen prize packs!
It’s easy to enter – tie a fly and snap a picture.
- Tie a fly that integrates Fish-Skull Faux Bucktail in some way (Faux Bucktail does not necessarily need to be the primary material) and take a photo of it.
- Post the photo on Instagram, tag @flymenfishingco, @thomasandthomasflyrods, @harelinedubbin, and @loonoutdoors in your post (make sure you’re following all of us!), and hashtag #FauxBucktailThrowdown2017.
