Welcome to Lefty Angler & Flies Online Store

Finally I caught up with a modern way = online store & transaction!! 

Store is created by ECWID. It's an App that lets the small business build and run their online store without too much fee or complications. Your CC is transacted by Square. I've been using Square for my guide trip payments all these years and my clients or I have not had any issues. Over all it's very secure, period. 

But then, I still welcome good old trusty checks so please contact me any time!!

And please don't hesitate to ask questions regarding items, shipping, and anything!!

Note for international customers: I don't know and can't be responsible for the custom/import fee, if applicable, of your countries. When I fill the custom sheet, I have to report the transacted value honestly. That's because in case something happens and I have to claim insurance = I have to refund fully or partially to the customers. I'm doing this as my professions, i.e., making living and reporting as my income/business cost, not a side hassle under the table to make quick money. You know what I mean.

Product Details

December 18, 2023

Due to popular demands by retailers, I made a very small amount of copies. After their orders, there is ONLY 1 copy left at my hand.


Copies are available from the following businesses/locations.

At Spring Creek Specialists, Hatch Finders, or Yellowstone Angler, I highly recommend to stop by and purchase many other items at each or all the stores. However, if you are not visiting the area, they may arrange you shipping services. Please contact at each business.


Wait is over!!

Since the first print ran out in November 2021, I've been working very hard to get things together for the second print with complete revisions and total improvements.

Main contents are still the flies and insects with totally enhanced photos, plus some new fly patterns.

Also new are more reading materials, including some of my guiding and technical aspects. Hence the "Plus Some Minor Tactics".

Now a former small booklet has grown to a full fledged book! Doubled pages but the price is 1.5 times more!!

As 2020 marks the 10th guide season, I would proudly and confidently like to present this self-published book of mine.

As some of you know, I've been on Livingston's spring creeks and been guiding clients with my best. I've been conducting insect collections and taking lots of pictures. Those have been for my fishing reports on my blog and for online articles. Then I've been uploading tying instruction videos on YouTube. This is the first ever compilation of all three: insect-fly-materials. And within this relatively small volume, it covers all the insects and food sources along with matching flies.
In early summer 2019, before my guide season really kicked off, I realized I had accumulated so many information and pictures. I made a photo book along with my writings then I gave copies to some people whom I work with on spring creeks. Their responses were very positive and encouraging that this little book would help spring creek anglers understand what kind of insects exist in creeks, identify them, and select proper flies.
Along with reviews, comments, and collections for the prototype from my contacts, I discovered more and even better photos from my computer. I had been editing here and there. Then I came up with a printing operation who could make my project reality.
It's a soft-bound 8" x 8" book. 40 pages including front and back covers. Pictures are printed out at the best available color and quality on the best available paper. I promise it's really thick and strong paper, not flimsy one that can be easily torn.
I'd really like to mention that these pictures were never meant for a book project. All the writings and descriptions were based on my stream observations and from fishing & guiding journal entries. It's an accumulation of my professional works, indeed the summary of my guide career at this point.
This book will help all level of anglers who come to fish Livingston's spring creeks any months of the year. Even when savvied anglers who visit creeks for particular hatch periods, it's highly possible they can come across other hatches or peculiar situations. Although this is not a How-To book, it contains some useful information other than insects and matching flies. Besides, fly patterns in this book can be modified for other similar waters in other areas.
This is why I can proudly and confidently present this book.
