Largemouth - Paluxy River
I picked up a fly rod at the age of 10 and have never been able to put it down. Fly tying started shortly after and I have chased fish all over the US and Mexico. I now own a small fly tying company as well as run guided trips. My favorite area to fish is the Bitteroot River in Missoula, MT and my favorite species to target is Redfish in the Texas Gulf.

Marshall the GOAT!!
Marshall was super helpful and pointed me in the right direction for everything I needed to start fly fishing. He was highly responsive and made great recommendations specific to my area; never trying to upsell me at all. He helped save me hours of researching for the perfect gear. If I ever have questions I’ll definitely go to him. Thanks!

Ed's experience with Marshall
Paying for a loaded reel and not receiving such isn’t good. I do appreciate the steps taken to rectify the situation
