Welcome to Face Time Fly Fishing

I’m your host Eric Stroup

Many of you know me as a full time guide, writer and fly tier. I am all of the above. In fact, we may have had the pleasure of spending a day or two on the water together which is something I enjoy at my core more than anything else.

The world moves so fast and rarely do we have time to escape to the stream. Life, family and career consume our time, however we ALL deserve a break from time to time because there is nothing like a day on the stream to focus the mind and set things right.

The Squatter

Peter Durisik tied this pattern for me last summer and it performed unbelievably well all the way into December. This is a version of the Pocket Picker I featured in the 30 Days series. This fly should take up residence in your fly box and NEVER leave! Hope you enjoy!…
