Pat Cohen Bio
I specialize in deer hair bass bugs, but I tie everything from streamers to nymphs. The artistic freedom that fly tying offers is what drew me to it. All of my flies are meant to be fished with the exception of the display offerings. Every piece of each bug – be it the hair, feathers, or weed guards – has a purpose. The final product is a fish catching fly and a miniature sculpture all in one. To my way of thinking, there is nothing like watching a five pound bucketmouth or an 18 inch smallie erupting from the water to crush one of my bugs as it’s drawn across the surface.
I have a deeply ingrained passion for chasing golden bones; carp on the fly is a challenge that more and more fly anglers are only beginning to appreciate. Carp are by far one of the most difficult fresh water species to hook with a fly, and I’ve created a wide variety of nymph patterns to target these misunderstood and often maligned game fish.
My Travels have also taken me into the world of salt water fly fishing. Most of my patterns are tied on reliable Mustad salt-water hooks for extra durability, and are suitable for stripers, blues, and any other salty game that might chase a baitfish.
