The "Junk Fly" Kit is not for the vintage cane rod collectors or the dry fly purists. At least they won't admit it! These are not your traditional flies and may even get you banned from certain fly fishing circles.
This box has one purpose, catch trout when nothing else will. As temperatures go lower and leaves begin to fill the feeding lanes, the standard color flies can get lost in the mix and become harder for trout to distinguish. Our selection of flies for the signature "Junk Fly" Kits are flies that stand out from the normal fly shop junk flies.
Our Trailer Park Scuds, Sparkle Mops, Perdi-Juan Worms, finesse San Juan Worms and eggs all use the best UV Straggle Chenilles and Fluoro threads from Semperfli. The new Hareline Galaxy Mop Chenille in our mop flies adds a realistic look and sparkle that will instantly out perform your standard mop flies.
We select flies with hotspots and higher UV contrast to draw immediate strikes in off-colored water without being too bright for clearer conditions. Each of the tungsten jigs works great as an anchor in combination with the unweighted flies.

Meet the Guanaja Fly Tyers Guild. They are the primary supplier and designers for Guide Flies and the inspiration to pass on the art of fly tying to this incredibleisland community.
It started by recognizing the natural fly tying talent that existed in the community of Guanaja. The guides and family members of the Fly Fish Guanaja staff had learned the basics of fly tying and made creative flies for technical permit and bonefish that were not easily fooled.
Over the the last three years they have worked hard to perfect their craft. What began as an experiment in the beach front cabana, has turned into one of the greatest small business opportunities for the Island of Guanaja.
The team of fly tyers that make the Guanaja Fly Tyers Guild is instructed and led by Dave McKenna. They work daily to make the custom tied flies you can purchase through our website. They are self managed and work with an entrepreneurial approach to their business of fly tying.
Through the challenges of passing hurricanes and the Covid-19 pandemic, they have persevered and worked with pride to make the flies we offer here.
We all thank you sincerely for the support and orders that have helped bring the entire team through the hardest parts of the past year. We are very excited to share our newest flies and designs with you!
