Item Description

On March 18, 2011, Mike Brown, owner of Mossy’s Fly Shop, hosted an “Up All Night Tie-In” at his store in Anchorage, Alaska.  His vision was to open his shop at 9 in the morning and not close his shop until 1,000 flies had been tied. Mike knew the community would come together, have fun, and be able to produce 1,000 flies. What Mike didn’t anticipate was that 1,000 flies would only take the industrious fly tyers 12½  hours to complete! Mike then donated all 1,000 flies to Casting for Recovery – Alaska! 

What you have before you is a fabulous purple fly box, loaded with 100 of the flies from Mossy’s Tie-In.  All the flies are some variety of wet flies, including, but not limited to streamers, flesh flies, and buggers.  All flies are prime examples of great salmon and trout flies for Alaskan waters and chosen and tied by Alaskan fly tyers.
