New Business


Recommended Posts

Good Morning Great Lakes Fishermen,

I've been a member for a few years, and was told it would be OK to announce my new business venture in this section. I'm retiring in late June after 40 years with a great employer and am converting my avocation, great lakes fishing, to my vocation with the opening of Mike's Eyeflies. The website can be seen here www.eyeflies.com and I can be reached here [email protected]. I started tieing flies as a kid back in PA after my Dad started taking me to Fishermen's Paradise near Belfonte in central PA..... no robin, blue or redbird, pheasant, rabbit or squirrel was safe after that:lol: Anyway, check the website to see my products and store, and I'll use this post from a Great Lakes Charter Captain, Daybreak in Marquette, tell you about what I am making. Good fishing!

Mike

" I wanted to post this site for people to check out. www.eyeflies.com

The company is brand new and locally owned and operated. The website is brand new and will constantly being updated with new products and info. I have used a lot of different trolling flies out there, but I definatly have a new favorite! Very high quality materiels and craftmanship and a great choice of different colors and combos. The hooksets are also very nice, with either single 5/0 hooks or double 4/0 hooks. Also availble are Glow Beads. These arnt the sh*tty beads that glow for 5 minutes either. These beads glow like a Moonshine spoon, and last for well over an hour or more! They have all the features I like about other brands, and a few extra!

A nice feature of these flys is the inside diameter of the head is slightly larger than other brands. This enables you to switch fly bodies with ease without switching leaders everytime. Just slide the fly body off the leader and slide on a different one. There are also UV color options, as well and the addition of the silicon strands in the skirts really makes them shimmer in the water!

If you are looking at replacing a few old flies or just want to add a few new ones to your box, check these out! You wont be dissapointed! Locally made and they catch fish!! "

:D Thanks Daybreak

Congrats on the new venture Mike. Must be a good line if Capt. John is standing behind them. He usually isn't very vocal about products and with his knowledge he could have many tackle manufacturers on board with him but chooses not to. His is definitely an opinion i value!

Thanks for the kind remarks guys. The proof of the product will come with fishing:)

I'm still having problems with the website and am looking to move to a new host company server. Sometimes it works well, and then others it is extrememly slow or won't open at all:mad:

Some one tell me where to order big glow beads!

My source was Purple Taco, but that dried up last year.

Trout Beads has a variety of sizes, including a large 14mm. I buy from him now and they are better than most out there, but they don't glow quite as long as the beads that Purple Taco used to carry.

Hope this helps.

Mike
