What could be better than floating down the river on a beautiful summer day in the middle of a thick dry fly hatch? We think that's what life is all about. That's why we want you to enjoy the experience and let us pick the flies.
A tandem dry-dropper rig is a summer staple on just about every trout guide's fly rods. The big fuzzy dry fly stimulates a feeding reaction while the dropper nymph dangles in front of their nose. It's almost an unfair combination!
Our summer selection is put together with decades of fly fishing experience guiding and outfitting anglers across North America. Our assortment of hand-picked Guide Flies includes some of our newest patterns for 2021!
The Summer 2021 Dry-Dropper Kit includes your choice of 24, 48 or 120 flies and an optional water-proof FliCon Silicon Fly Box

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!
