Jay "Fishy" Fullum ties his "Peel-and-Stick"

Filmed at the International Fly Tiers Symposium, Fly and Fin presents Jay "Fishy" Fullum ties his "Peel-and-Stick"

Many know Jay "Fishy" Fullum from his “Creative Tying” column in "Fly Tyer", but he’s also the "artist in residence" at the magazine.  He shops for most of his materials at craft stores and the big box home improvement centers.  While he will tie with feathers, dubbing and other items we all find in our favorite fly shop, Fishy love to use non-traditional materials for his creations, such as meat trays and sandwich wrappers to kickboards and fake fingernails.  As an example a dry cleaning garment bag become an endless supply of bodies for his “Bitsy Spider.”

He is the author of “Fishy's Favorites for Bass, Trout, and Salt Water” and “Fishy's Flies.” He gives fly-tying classes and seminars and is a featured tier and lecturer at the International Fly Tying Symposium.  His innovative patterns catch everything from bluegills to bonefish.



  1. Nice tie, I like the look of this blog a lot. When you get a chance, tell me what you think of mine.

  2. I love that guy. I spent a ton of time watching him at the FF Show in Somerset. That's a cool little fly. I suspect it would work well for largemouth as well.

  3. I have been following him since I started reading flytyer magazine. very innovative ideas.
