Richard Katzman resides in the Catskills of the US state New York and ties tube flies for his fishing

If you are interested, you can view my slideshows and my instructional videos on YouTube under Richard Katzman, Catskill Tube Flies and Catskill Hook Flies.

At the time of this writing I have well over a thousand custom flies in every shape, size and specialty for every fish. This includes large flies for fishing in the ocean and great lakes. The rest of my collection is for lakes, streams and rivers. Once you see my flies, I'm sure you will agree that they are very life like and very beautiful. If you subscribe to my YouTube channel, you will be notified each time a new video is posted. I have been making a new type of "fly-lure" that can be used by fly fishermen and Spin Rod fishermen alike.

The first fly-lure that I made, I was able to cast it 65 feet with my spin rod in the back of my house in the snow. I cast this fly-lure 5 times and retrieved it through the snow. The fly-lure looked just as good as the first time I cast it out. This is a truly remarkable new creation. If you have any questions, you can email me at: and I will get back to you as soon as possible.

Good luck and tight lines.

Richard has also published in The Catskill Baitfish July 2014 and in The New Fly Fisher online magazine.
