The one box of flies you need to cover the Atlantic fall and spring runs of striped bass, bluefish and false albacore!
Striped bass and albies have become widely targeted as trophies on the fly. They often become technical and require matching the hatch. It can range a wide variety of baits including tiny glass minnows, spearing, rain fish, sand eels, crabs to larger herring or bunker.
Striped bass and bluefish are also targeted in every coastal environment along the the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic and make a great sport fish at every size. Some anglers are even hitting the sand flats to sight fish for striped bass. This is where a small olive crab comes in handy!
Dave McKenna and the Guide Flies team have selected these flies to cover all the bases for inshore striped bass, bluefish and albies.

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!
