Riddle us this whole deep quandary: What does the guy who sang American Pie have in common with a lot of companies' signature tiers? All due respect, but they all feel a lot like one-hit wonders, something that's the absolute antithesis of an Idylwilde signature tier. Whether their patterns better imitate an insect's many life cycles, move more seductively, cast easier, remain durable or visible after multiple thrashings, sink quicker or float higher, our guys are far too prolific to put out just one killer fly and call it good. They create entire catalogs of flies and in many cases, they've created entire tying styles (Quigley Cripple, anyone?). That's the benchmark for those who design our premium patterns. It's gotta be new, different and above all, ultra effective. Lucky for you.

Choose a signature tier from the menu above, or click next to view them in painstakingly alphabetized order.
