Our Fly Designers

Ed Story

The late Ed Story, founder of Feather-Craft Fly Fishing in St. Louis, MO, is the creator of the popular Crackleback Fly and dozens of other world famous fresh and saltwater fly patterns. Ed was a friend to many and had a dynamic personality and boundless energy for spreading the joy of fly fishing. His energy was also felt by thousands of his customers/friends that he advised and mentored over the F-C phone lines for over three decades. He loved teaching and talking about fly fishing almost as much as he loved doing it.
