Wisconsin Flies and Fishing

wisconsin-river-mapGuest Blogger: Perry Morrison aka Montana Guy Flies

I grew up in Montana with a fly pole in my hand and I now live in Wisconsin. I started tying flies at an early age and have continued to tie flies for myself and friends along with sell my flies at a local bait shop. I am constantly adding to my fly tying supplies by ordering from J. Stockard. I can simply say quality materials at a reasonable price keeps me coming back. The materials have helped me to develop some unique flies for fishing a wide range of fish such as pan fish, walleye, musky, northern pike and of course trout, steelhead and salmon. With the competition heavy during the salmon run several individuals are always watching what I am using and asking due to my success in catching king salmon. The local bait shop has given me an outlet for selling my flies. My biggest sellers are my walleye bucktails with scuds and sow bugs for ice fishing.

We do not have a large, local community of fly fisherman where i live here in Wisconsin so the local big box sporting goods stores do not carry fly tying or fishing equipment. This is why it is so important to have a supplier like J Stockard who has an immense inventory to select from along with fast shipping. My hat is off to you folks there at J. Stockard. I just started tying Musky flies so who knows I might catch my first one on a hand tied fly.

Tight lines all and if any are interested in trying to catch Lake Michigan salmon in the fall fly fishing let me know. I guide but only charge a smile when you catch a fish.

NOTE FROM J. STOCKARD: Thanks for the kind words! Keep tying…

    Perry….if you are still living in the Wisconsin area, especially the upper part above Wausau,can you share some information about the fly fishing really good places to fish and maybe some information on a few of your favorite parts(places) that could easily be assessable by someone that is a non-resident of Wis consin…..I moved away from Wausau WI several years ago and moved back home to the South…. but I am going to be visiting back there next summer in June 2019. Thanks again.
