The Great Escape Trail – Ohio Fly Fishing

History & Mission

The Great Escape Trail is a collective of fishermen, foragers, herbalists & nature lovers seeking to rediscover our human connection to the wilderness from urban environments. The Great Escape Trail is a symbolic path of living a self-sufficient, free, purpose-driven and honorable life with family, within our community.

Ohio Flyfishing & Flytying

Well tied fishing flies are essential for fly fishing. Some flies are tied to catch fish, while others are designed to catch fishermen. I tie flies that catch fish. My flies won’t fall to bits after you land half-a-dozen fish. The flies I tie are both productive and durable.

The Great Escape Trail fly-fishing flies are hand-tied using only the finest materials and Tiemco or Daiichi hooks. Our fly patterns are tested  in the rivers and streams of Ohio by a handful of experienced fishermen. We specialize in fly patterns that imitate aquatic insects and baitfish indigenous to Ohio & Western Pennsylvania. In addition, we also tie the more commonly fished flies which are popular with fly fishermen on trout & bass streams across the U.S.

You see it’s curious. Ted did figure it out – time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it’s possible, how it’s done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an ‘unknown entry event’? Why don’t they know?.
