Fly Tying

What Little I know About Fly Fishing 

​Flies & Leaders


For those who would rather tie than buy this is an ever growing collection of blog pages covering the materials, tying steps, history and fishing tips for all my Signature Fly Patterns along with a few classics. This will be an ongoing project and who knows I may even come fully into the 21st Century and do a video or two, that remains to be seen. 


This is an ongoing collection of blog post devoted to getting novice and experienced fly anglers pointed in the right direction based on over 50 years of angling experience.
   J Wood Fly Fishing offers a carefully selected collection of flies and specialized hand-tied leaders.
