Peter Smith, Innovative Flats Flies

January 10, 2015 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm


Peter is a production fly tyer who ties thousands of flies every year at his business SSFlies. He is the only fly tyer I’ve met that measures the amount of thread he uses not in spools, but in miles per year. He has methods for fly tying that could only come from spending all of his working hours, for years, at the vise. He supplies the flies to some of the most well known flats guides in the Florida Keys and he takes “tweaking a pattern” to a whole new level. The few times I’ve visited his workshop and the many times I’ve walked in on one of his lessons, I’ve come away with a new trick for fly tying. During Peter’s class you will learn innovative and proven techniques for tying all kinds of saltwater flies.  Patterns covered will include flies for tarpon, permit and bones but some of the patterns and all of the techniques will have much wider applications. Check out Peters flies here;
