My Story

Stonefly Nets - Custom wood landing nets

While I’m relatively new to fly fishing, I’m not to woodworking. I started fly fishing in the fall of 2014 and from that day on I was hooked. It was only recently that I decided to put my love for fly fishing and woodworking together and start Stonefly Nets.

I spent 13 years in the custom woodwork industry while living in Charleston, SC. More recently I have been making and selling men’s neckties and bow ties. Some of you may know me better from Carolina Cotton Ties.

Fly fishing is one of those activities that goes beyond catching fish.  For me it is a memory created by a 3wt. bamboo rod that my great grandmother gave to my father and he to me. It is my hope and goal that when you buy one of my nets that it will help make those lasting family memories.

In both of my bow tie and woodworking careers I have always enjoyed working with people to help them get their creative ideas turned into reality.
