If anyone knows poppers, it’s Martin Bawden of Flymen Fishing Company. Flymen is based in the mountains of Brevard, North Carolina, which is surrounded by great fly fishing water. Bawden selflessly takes one for the team by “field testing” his company’s poppers – as well as the rest of their high-quality, durable flies – all over the country. Follow Bawden on his field tests via Instagram and Facebook.
Bawden founded the company in 2008 with the goal of making fly tying accessible to all fly fishermen by simplifying the materials and offering step-by-step tutorials. Innovative products like the Surface Seducer Double Barrel Bass Bug and Fish-Skull Living Eyes will take your fly tying to the next level. Watch Bawden put the Bass Bug to the test here.
See for yourself why Flymen Fishing Company has been awarded nine Best of Show awards at the International Fly Tackle Dealer Show. Bring your popper, fly, and fly tying material questions to Bawden and his knowledgeable staff at the 2019 Texas Fly & Brew Festival.
