Christian Marrero - The Miami Fly Guy!
Most happy to introduce our latest Guru, and Contributing Team Member here on Flats Nation Christian Marrero who is maybe better known in the Instagram World as the "The Miami Fly Guy" who is just one heck of a Bug Slinger and an even better Fly Tyer!
Brother Chris has been most helpful to myself here fielding questions, hearing out some crazy ideas, and jumped "Like a Bone on one of his flies!" when we asked him to become assimilated (Resistance is Futile) and a member of the Flats Nation Team, and share his knowledge and artistry on the vise with us 😊
And (which shocked me) is planning his wedding to his lovely fiance' Jessica so we need to squeeze as much content and production from Chris before he really becomes assimilated and can't even take a call much less, go fishing!
God Bless them both! And quite sure his fishing days and calls from me are still safe and suspect... His product output will need to increase even more! This so, everybody send in your orders soon, to help offset the costs of not only the wedding! But also, all the new gear he is going to pick up for his New Bride 😊
So, the concept and plans we are working on with Chris which I feel will be just awesome and bring great value to our quickly growing community here on Flats Nation thus far:
Chris is starting his own article series where he is going to highlight his work, how to create them, and (when possible) how to best present them for the intend targets! Brother Chris has already started on his first article in the series, and it looks awesome! Him and I really need to go pull some R&D with some soon!
For those who just do not have the gear or the time (guilty as charged) to create your own or needed variants of them. We are working building out an online ordering and catalog system so you can just order X amount in the colors of your choice and need to match the appearance of your local forage species. Naturally, the color of the bottom in your preferred or planned fishing destinations, may have color scheme implications. So, when placing orders with Chris which is now on his Instagram page found by clicking Here, Do let him know where you are planning to use them, and the bottom you will be covering if known?
And then lastly (for now) Chris and I will spool up some Podcasts to really cover this topic in-depth. We are already working on how to best group those shows so they are targeted for your needs / species you are looking to pick a fight with! 😊
So, again, Chris Welcome Aboard Brother! We are tickled to death that you wanted to share your knowledge and talent with all of us here on Flats Nation!
Tight Lines and God Bless!
