Our Fly Designers

Todd Turner

I grew up in SW Virginia and have been trout fishing and tying flies for about 30 years. I prefer to tie and fish with nymphs and typically feel more confident when I use my own patterns that are realistic imitations. About eight years ago, I started experimenting with Stretch-Flex to create some unique patterns and techniques for tying realistic nymphs. My Freestone Rock Worm series started evolving from my efforts to imitate the bright green and tan free-living caddis larvae that are abundant in my home creek in North Carolina.
