NEW for 2021
The Nuclear Wired Walt’s Worm is another fly off Dave McKenna’s vise for the 2021 season. After seeing the need for a higher vis, faster sinking style Walts Worm, Dave gave this fly a more of what it needed. A denser body, high contrast between the fluorescent green body and purple tungsten bead and a bright green hot spot.
Guide Flies Signature Design Makes the Difference
- Semperfli Fluorescent Green Flat Braid creates a naturally translucent body to hold light and show up in low-light conditions. This triggers fast reactions from trout.
- Radiant Purple Tungsten Slotted beads from Umpqua get the fly into the strike zone instantly and keep it rolling hook point up. Also, every trout loves purple.
- Semperfli Hot Green wire and Chartreuse thread make a naturally green underbody to match the small green caddis that trout feed on all year.
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!
