It's Official: The roughfisher just got Awesomer

It's been a long time coming, but I finally sealed the deal and signed on with Idylwilde as a "Signature Tier". What does this mean for you? It means that some of my gnarly patterns will soon be found in a fly shop near you. Of course, I'll still be kicking around some new patterns on here and hawking them for sale in my store. One thing I do know, however, is that I'm going to have to eat my words and make good on a a promise I made to a couple folks at IFTD. Whitey, Samples, looks like I just became a Ross Reels man....

And with the stroke of a pen, my flies just got awesomer.


  1. Congrats JP! You totally deserve it sucka!

  2. Nice work hombre.

  3. SWEET! Its nice to make a bit of scratch doing what you love.

  4. Congrats JP, very well deserved. I'm assuming the OG roughfisher flies I have will be heirlooms.

  5. Hell yeah man. Congrats. Let us know when they're available. I'll pester the shit out of my flyshop that thinks a #16 rubber legged hares ear, or a #2 bugger is a carp fly.
