Founded in 1996, Cabin River Flies was originally a small, craft-tying business.

Today, our goal is to bring the same craft-tied, by-the-fisher, for-the-fisher approach to flies that was integral to our original operation, all those years ago.  But, we do this in a now digitized world, and thus the methods used must evolve, just like fly fishing has over the millenia humans have been doing it.  

At Cabin River Flies of today, we're committed to  providing resources, tools, unique flies and fly tying products, and curated gear selections to the modern fly fisher through a high-quality digital-first experience.

Caleb as a kid - no, this isn't normal fishing gear.  This was a day gone bad bow-hunting with no food, but made better thanks to a fly, 6 feet of leader, and a stick.  One minnow later and nobody died of hunger.
