An·chor Fly.


An anchor fly is a beaded nymph that is weighted to get to the feeding zone quickly. Anchor flies are commonly used in Euro Nymphing and similar tight-line angling methods.


What does fly fishing mean to us?

If my life is a book—the letters are actions and the words are the stories created from those actions. My time on the water is the space between the words. In this space, I am free…” —Eric Carter-Spurio


One of the things that we think make us different is the time and energy we put into our studies, beginner fly fishing content, and conservation interviews. For example, our resources for beginners are thorough and in-depth. Moreover, we aim to add to and revise these sections consistently.

More anglers are fishing now than ever before—we all can and should do our best to give back in one way or another.

Sharing knowledge is important to us. We strive to publish and refine educational content, consistently.
