6th Man

Smallmouth, Trout, Redfish, Largemouth, Seatrout its all fair. Developed in 2006, the 6th Man has proven itself as a go to fly for Trout and Smallmouth. A Kreelex and Clawdad merged as one, this fly packs a punch, a kick, a body slam and kill shot. Simply deadly.

Chuck Kraft's Excalibur

For 3 decades Chuck Kraft has been fishing cork topwater bugs The Excalibur pictured above is the most productive color, style and size of any other. "If it's not broke, don't fix it." You fish it. We don't make any style of Chuck Kraft bug unless if has been productive and effective.


Publicly released in January of 2014, the Crittermite has lived up to it's fame of being called "The Best Helgrammite Fly" ever by professionals in the industry. Don't get fooled by the "knock off" tails. Our favorite size is #4 in Black or Wood. 

Topwater Kreelex

Developed in 2010, the Topwater Kreelex has been Eastern Trophies best Topwater pattern to date. Once you fish one, you won't want to fish anything else. A Topwater Crankbait style fly that is truly amazing.

6th Man

William developed the 6th Man in 2006 as a result of the need for a crayfish pattern to be seen in murky water while guiding the North Branch of the Potomac River. When you merge a Kreelex and Clawdad you get an amazing fly pattern. Proven for over a decade on Trout and Smallmouth Bass, anglers are now using it as a cross over pattern to catch Redfish. Many of Eastern Trophies largest trout and smallmouth have come to hand using the 6th Man.

CK Boga Bugs

If you like bug fishing for smallmouth bass, Chuck Kraft's Boga Bugs will make you fall in love with bug fishing. Made from cork, these flies are a little easier to cast and can really get the job done with late Summer low water levels. Use the Crittermite or Damsel tails to finish off the back.
