Pat Cohen

Pat Cohen

My name is Pat Cohen. I live in upstate New York where there is an abundance of warm water streams, lakes and farm ponds to fish though anything with gills is fair game. I was always a terrible fisherman with traditional gear. I began flyf ishing in 2008 and since then I have caught more fish then I can count. I have been tying flies since January of 2009. Fly fishing and tying have become an essential part of my life.

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. To me, there is nothing like watching a 5 pound Large Mouth Bass, or an 18 inch Small Mouth come jumping through the water to crush a top water bug thrown next to a fallen tree.

Bass Bugs to me compare to Dry Flies for Trout. Every bit of hair, feather, weed guard and shape of the bug have a purpose. The final product is a fish catching fly and a tiny sculpture all in one. As a working Artist, I try to add an artistic flair to all of my fly creations. I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoy creating them.

I am a member of the Pro Team for Peak vises and regularily demonstrate fly tying at various events on the east coast.If you would like to know about me and what I am up to please follow my blog, Warm Water Journal
