“How Lively Legz Came About”
It all began in the spring of 2013. Benny, Andy, and I were out fishing on the Little Juniata River, located in Central Pennsylvania. We took a break from fishing and decided to do some rock flipping to get a better idea of what type of nymphs were located in the steam. What we noticed were the various sizes, as well as the colors of the nymphs. There was an array of colors from black, brown, olive, golden, and even yellow. The one characteristic that stood out the most, as we observed the nymphs, was the leg structure on each nymph. Every nymph had a very noticeable, yet defined, leg structure protruding from its body. We began to think of ways to better replicate this unique characteristic. If we could do that, rather than tying with feathers, we may be able to improve the number of hook ups. After a year of trial and error and a lot of hard work, we came up with a product that really increased the amount of fish in the net.
One of the best things about this journey has been the relationships we have built with so many great people with the same interest. We are constantly getting feedback from customers, many of which keep statistics, on the product regarding the satisfaction and enjoyment they get from using our Legz. We also have a Facebook page where people can share their pictures, stories, or even shoot us updates about the product. Another thing we enjoy is going out fishing and making videos of the product in action. Please feel free to check us out via YouTube at Lively Legz Fly Fishing.
We are very pleased to announce that we will be working in cooperation with Holly Flies. We have really formed a nice relationship with the owner, Justin Pittman, who certainly has the same goal as we do; seeing people enjoying the wonderful world of fly fishing. Until next time…Tie One On!
