Fall weather brings some of the best fly fishing of the year. With changing weather, we adapt our fall fly boxes to meet the conditions.
As temperatures go lower and leaves begin to fall, our standard natural flies can mix in and become harder for trout to distinguish. Our Fall Fly Kits for the Musconetcong and local NJ, PA and NY rivers are based on flies that stand out from the debris and leaf litter and can also get the trout's attention in overcast and cloudy days.
We find that a mix of heavy jig style flies and unweighted, natural flies like sucker spawn and our finesse San Juan-Worms are great combinations for attracting trout that are looking to put on weight for the upcoming winter and spawns.
When the trout are more aggressive, a flashy Guide Bugger is hard to beat on the downstream swing.

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!
