T.F.M. Spotting - Rusty Rat Visework

When Michael Decoteau isn't fly fishing, painting, woodworking, drawing, photographing, well then he can be found behind the vise working on fly orders.

Recently Michael knocked out a few dozen Rusty Rat flies while wearing his T.F.M. t-shirt at the vise for a submission for the T.F.M. Spotting Photo Contest.  

These look good.  Real damn good.  Almost to good to fish.

Michael is also one of my favorite Instragram follows and these images are a neat insight to his fly tying process.

Created with Admarket's flickrSLiDR.

Check out more of Michael's vise work in this T.F.M. post featuring his classic Maine streamer patterns.


It sounds like Michael may be working on a website but for now follow him on Instagram under the name "tightloops".

Some really sweet irons on here. Thanks for posting, I've never seen his flies before. good to know there is another brother of the Long Iron in the world.
