Wiley's Flies is owned and operated by world renown fly tier and author, Vince Wilcox. What began as an online store in 2003 out in Loveland, CO has grown into the best stocked fly shop in the Adirondacks in Ray Brook, NY.
Wiley's Flies has over 25,000 flies to choose from and gear from St. Croix, Temple Fork, W. Jude, Rio, William Joseph, Dan Bailey, Galvan, Lamson, Umpqua, Montana Fly Company, Chota, Renzetti, Peak, Regal, Stone Creek, Spirit River, Hareline and Wapsi. We also have the largest fly tying material, tools and vise selection in the northeast.
Anglers come from around the region for our selection and knowledge. From Saratoga, Montreal, Ontario, Malone, Plattsburgh, Potsdam, Canton, Massena, Lake Placid, Wilmington, Jay, Lake Placid, Saranac Lake, Lake Placid and Tupper Lake. If you are visiting the region and need accomodations, check out our motel page for rates and information on staying with us in our motel, right behind the fly shop.
Vince has written for American Angler, Eastern Flyfishing, Fly Fisherman, Southwest Flyfishing, NY Outdoors and is a contributing writer at Fly Tyer Magazine. In additional to magazines, Vince has published two books "Vince Wilcox's Guide to Tying Nymphs and Dry Flies" and his most recent "Vince Wilcox's Naturally Artificial Signature Flies". He is also a professional macro-photographer and sketch artist specializing in photographing and sketching flies, imagine that. In addition to the writing he signed as a Signature Tier for Idylwilde Flies in 2003 and in 2013 signed with Umpqua Feather Merchants where dozens of his patterns are tied and sold commercially around the world, all while he collects royalties for the rights to the patterns and using his name. (sounds more lucrative then it actaully is) Vince continues to strive toward creating new flies that are effective and durable as well as some of the most creative in the industry. As a production fly tier he has tied hundreds of thousands of flies and when he’s not busy writing, running his motel, outfitter business, on-line store and tying flies, he is guiding in Colorado, Idaho, Wyoming and primarily on his northern Adirondack streams.
Ross Purnell, editor of Fly Fisherman Magazine writes “Vince Wilcox is the most creative and unorthodox tier of his generation. His flies are as fun to tie as they are to fish.”
Geoff Mueller of The Drake Magazine has this to say of his latest book “Vince Wilcox is one of contemporary flytying’s leading innovators. His signature trout patterns break the status quo because they are originals, period, invented and tested by the man behind the vise, and this book. From midges and micro mays on technical Western tailwaters, to fishing J.C. Specials on unnamed rivulets in New York’s vast Adirondack State Park, the flies featured here regularly stick selective fish. Read Wilcox’s articulate descriptions, practice expert step-by-step techniques, and unlock the recipes that tap into fish instinct and angler curiosity better than most. Then go fish the bugs and see for yourself.”
