We love fly fishing as much as you do!

We love fly fishing as much as you do! Growing up on the wild Alpine streams, we spent hours and days fishing - a time that left a lasting impression on us and helped shape our attitude to life. When we exchanged our normal fishing rod for our first fly rod and caught our first trout, we were infected by fly fishing fever. Since then, fly fishing has been our "way of life".

Driven by this passion, we founded our shop 15 years ago with the aim of living the dream of fly fishing every day and spreading it further. Founded as a one-man business in 2008, our fly fishing shop has established itself as one of the leading businesses in Europe.
Get to know us!

Our online fly fishing shop specializes in high quality artificial flies. The extensive range of more than 3,000 flies for trout and grayling, for pike, chub, perch and saltwater predators like Bonefish and Tarpon or classic salmon flies will inspire you! You'll find the right fly for the right moment in your waters: classic dryflies and wet flies, the finest CDC flies, heavy gold head nymphs and irresistible streamer, as well as new generations of fly patterns like popper flies, perdigon nymphs, czech nymphs, heavy jigs and tungsten nymphs, terrestrial flies, pike streamer, realistic J:SonSweden flies and many more!
