who we are

What we do

Since founding Pirate Fly Fishing in 2015, our goal has been to bring useful and good looking products to the anglers that are always on the move and ready to fish at any time.

We value good product design, so starting with our Pirate's Fly Patch, we aim to create gear that is there for you wherever you need it. Our gear is here to fuel your passion for fly fishing and give you another reason to never pass up a chance to get on the water.

When you purchase from Pirate Fly Fishing, you purchase a product that has been created with an acute attention to detail and tested in the field every chance we get. Our fly patches are hand assembled by us, using trusted adhesives and materials to ensure that what we deliver to you is worthwhile.
