At DNL Custom Fly Rods and Flies, the journey began with a passion for fly fishing and a desire to create something truly special for fly anglers everywhere. I am an avid fly fisherman with a deep appreciation for the artistry and craftsmanship of custom fly rods and flies. The company was born out of a commitment to quality, innovation, and the pursuit of perfection on the water.

I founded DNL with a vision to revolutionize the world of fly fishing by offering custom fly rods that surpassed the limitations of mass-produced alternatives. I drew upon my expertise in fly fishing, rod building, and design to create fly rods that not only look stunning but also perform flawlessly.

I started tying flies early in my life as a hobby. As people have seen my flies in detail and how well they worked, I was asked if I would sell them. It has now grown to tying lots of various patterns, colors, sizes, and types of flies. All the flies are hand-tied by me with quality materials. If you don't see a fly pattern, size, or color of a fly you are wanting, please get in touch with me. I tie custom fly orders as well as flies I have listed for sale. Since I tie all the flies myself, there might be a time when I don't have the fly you want in stock. If this happens, I will get them tied and sent to you in a timely manner.

What started as a passion project quickly evolved into a thriving business, as word spread of the exceptional quality and performance of my custom fly rods and flies. Anglers from all walks of life were drawn to my commitment to craftsmanship, attention to detail, and personalized service, making DNL Custom Fly Rods and Flies a trusted name in the fly fishing community.

Today, my mission remains the same: Craft custom fly rods and flies that inspire confidence, ignite passion, and create memories on the water. Each fly rod and fly that leaves my workshop is a testament to my dedication to excellence and my love for the sport of fly fishing. From the selection of the finest materials to the finishing touches, every step in the rod building and fly tying process is executed with care and precision, resulting in fly rods and flies that exceed expectations and stand the test of time.

Thank you for visiting my website and the privilege of serving you.
