Rich Strolis

Trout fisherman to the core, he loves to chase Pike and other warm water predators too, but he’ll be quick to tell you that as long as it swims and will eat sizable flies, it’s pretty much fair game in his book.  It was no coincidence that his first fly caught trout was fooled on a muddler minnow, and 25 years later his passion for streamer fishing continues to evolve.

Although he can hold his own in many facets of fly fishing for trout, streamers are his passion, and he likes them big.  His passion for streamer fishing goes beyond the water, expanding to his vise where he constantly tinkers with materials both new and old to create fresh patterns that push the limits in hopes of being solid producers both near and far.
