I can distinctly remember the first time I saw Mike George's deer hair flies on display in the front counter at K and K. I was immediately fascinated by the complexity of these bugs, and this was even before I had any understanding of the amount of thought that went into them. For those of you who haven't heard of Mike, or know him personally already, he's a nut. The stuff this guy can do with deer hair is seriously dumbfounding. I took my first fly tying class from Mike years ago, and aside from being an awesome guy overall, he is an equally awesome teacher.
Mike has won awards from Mustad for 10 years in a row now. He is also a regular at the North Arkansas SowBug roundup in Mountain Home.
Stop by K and K Saturday to see Mike demonstrate how he ties the perfect Humpy, an awesome dry for waters all over the world!
Also, check out his website for a taste of what he does!
