Matt is a commercial fly tier for 10+ years from South West Michigan. You can find him ripping streamers chasing giant smallmouth bass on much of the Western Great Lakes waters from Ice out to Ice in. Matt has had his patterns published in several books and Magazines in the last few years. His flies often push the traditional bounds of tying. When smallmouth season ends you can always find Matt giving a class in a Michigan fly shop or at many of the Midwest fly tying shows.
