Decorative Wooden Flies 

Unique gifts for your favorite fisherman 

All these beautiful reproductions have hand carved basswood bodies textured to produce a soft realistic look. Wings are thin basswood with burned shafts and splits to create a feathery look, hackles and tail are formed with reeds or straw and inserted into the body. Hooks may be part of the body or a decorative hardwood insert such as cherry. They are then painted with  acrylics using brush and airbrush and sealed to protect from fading. Each of these wooden flies is signed and has a card attached as each is an original and  guaranteed to delight the owner .As with most handmade items, these carvings will vary in cost depending upon the complexity of each finished piece. A review of the �Gallery� page will give you an idea of cost as it relates to complexity. Most custom flies range in cost from $200 to $500.
