WHO WE ARE, WHAT WE DO MEET BRENT DAWSON OF WARPATH FLYSWhen packing for adventure angling travel there are many moving parts to take into consideration. It’s important to have the right gear when traveling to fish, more specifically, flies.
You’d be doing yourself a disservice to show up unprepared. Meet Brent Dawson, a go-to tier for the Yellow Dog field team. The Yellow Dog team is traveling in the field somewhere almost weekly. The destinations vary and so do the fisheries. Even in a foreign place you really need to be on top of your game.
The last thing you want to worry about when casting to the target specie is the fly. Yes, confidence catches fish but rejections easily break confidence and after a few of them the right gear can make or break a day, or a trip of a lifetime. When you’re traveling you only have so many days to fish, so every single cast does in fact count.
Specifically speaking flies here, while we certainly use many superb patterns from the big companies on our angling travels, there are a few custom tiers who the Yellow Dog team calls on when traveling to exotic locations or targeting aggressive fish. One of those innovators we don’t leave home without calling is Brent Dawson, owner of Warpath Flys. Brent has been tying for the serious adventure angler for many years.
From Golden Dorado, to Barracuda, to Tiger fish Brent has you covered. Don’t overlook the popular game fish as well he has patterns for those too: bonefish, tarpon, snook, and trout. There’s a method to the madness in every distinctive conception.
If you’re planning on targeting a unique specie or large hard-hitting fish we encourage you to give Brent a call. His flies are impeccable and his customer service is impressive! We love his patterns so much that we put him in our catalog. Take a minute and get to know the man behind the insanity in the newest 2015 Yellow Dog Fly Fishing Catalog.
