Greetings from a fellow tyer! You did a very nice job - uncluttered layout, quality pictures too! I was researching some of the old Maine flat-wing streamer patterns and stumbled upon your website. Flies such as the Maynard's Marvel, Woods Special and Harris Special. I recently tied up a batch of Bemis Smelt. You do beautiful work and your flies are sure to make your customers very happy! Best to you!

I heard about Deryn through my bird hunting guide at Grand Stream Lake. We spent some time fishing for landlocks on the last day of hunting and it was definitely the best day of our Maine trip. I contacted Deryn and he was incredibly helpful and responsive. The flies were beautifully made and have stood up well to many hook ups. Deryn is easy to talk to, incredibly knowledgeable and he is a real honest to goodness craftsman. I plan to be a long time customer.

Thanks for your flies you sent! I appreciate the labeling so I could remember which ones to order. Hope to use them before ice-up. Tried a Clouser this week and got several 20" rainbows. Be glad to use smaller flies. Come out to MT again and go fishing.

Just received my first ever order of streamers from Deryn. Magnificently tied, wonderful presentation, works of art. Certainly in the ranks of a Carrie Stevens and Selene Dumaine. HIs contribution to the history of Maine fly fishing will be legendary. From one Veteran to another, thank you for your service to our great nation. God Bless.

Deryn was a huge help in surprising my husband with a dozen flies for our upcoming trip to Maine! He took the time to find out which flies would be best for where we will be fishing but was also very prompt in responding! Once the order was placed he got them tied and shipped very quickly. Within a day or two I believe. These were also a birthday gift and my husband could not have been more thrilled with the flies he received and how great they look! Deryn was very helpful and friendly! Thanks again!

Deryn, thanks so much for the super fast service. You made it easy. Your tandem streamers are exceptional - and had some great action with both salmon and trout. I really appreciated that you went the extra mile to replicate my Dad's fly - it meant a lot to me -and was very productive. I will be requesting more for our fall trip! Thanks again!

WARNING TO BROOK TROUT OF LABRADOR I know where you live and am now in receipt of the deadliest flies you will ever rise for thanks to the great work of Eddington's most famous fly tier. Well done Deryn, well done.
Bill McDougall said on Jun 10, 2017 10:28 AM
Nice job on the flies for Labrador. Thanks for the XL's, I'll give them a try, and give you a report when I get back.
Edrick C. Flewelling said on May 21, 2017 4:14 AM
Just received your flies this afternoon, Deryn. If these beautifully tied streamers fish as well as they look, then I am in for some action on the Kennebec next week. And thank for for getting these out to me before my trip. I'll keep you posted.
Rick Fox said on May 20, 2017 2:47 AM
Got my order from you. Was excited and made my day! Will continue to order flies in the future ! Very iImpressed! Hope the fish are 1/2 as impressed as I am !
Chris said on Apr 27, 2017 8:17 PM
Hey Deryn, Everything arrived today in good condition. Importantly, your flies were beautiful and definitely exceeded my expectations... which tend to be high when it comes to flies. I certainly know where I'm turning the next time I stock my boxes! Thanks also for the extras... I especially liked the Oatman streamers! Will have to pick up some more (e.g., "Oatman Brook Trout") on the next order. Tight Lines, -Chris in Concord, NH
Brad Sykes said on Apr 22, 2017 1:34 AM
I ordered a combo of streamer flies and nymphs from Deryn. The price was right, turn-around time was fast, and quality was excellent. Very happy with my order and can't wait to put them to use on my favorite rivers! Thanks again
Akira said on Jul 6, 2016 8:05 PM
I ordered a number of flies during Deryn's busy season. He did not disappoint and was very prompt and professional! I will definitely keep him in mind for my future fly needs... Thanks Deryn!
Robert Kinsman said on May 11, 2016 7:20 AM
Deryn, Wow, just opened my order of flies you sent me for my trip to Mossehead River could not be more pleased. Thank you so much for the help with the selections. Can't wait for my next order to be finished.
Kurt Hall said on May 8, 2016 1:44 AM
Top quality flies, Deryn. Tx for the advice on tying the Floating Smelt and the piece of foam.
Bill McDougall said on Jan 1, 2016 5:25 AM
The quality of the flies I just received from Deryn is impressive. I can not wait to show them to some big brook trout. The ordering process, using his web-site, couldn't be smoother. Good job all around!
Jim Abbott said on Jun 24, 2015 10:20 AM
WOW! The quality of these flies is fantastic. Deryn you are a real find, not only is your quality great but to find these unusual patterns from Maine is a real treat. I will go no where else for my flies.
Alan Chamberland said on Jun 14, 2015 7:02 AM
I just ordered flies from Deryn and am very impressed with them ! I was skeptical at first but when I recieved them was impressed by the workmanship looking forward to fishing on Long Lake in St Agatha . Thanks again Deryn
Ralph Turpin said on Sep 3, 2014 7:11 AM
Just recieved my streamer order, they are beautiful. Looking forward to giving them a good try. Will be placing another order. Thank you Deryn
Richard said on May 22, 2014 9:27 PM
Deryn, I received my order of Edson Tiger - Light streamers yesterday. This was a hard pattern for me to find. The flies look great and thank you for getting them to me fast! I plan to use them this weekend to go after some sea-run brook trout...
Greg Bryan said on May 18, 2014 10:37 AM
Just got my second order and can't wait to start flingin' them. I don't know of another place where I could get a lot of these locally developed patterns. Thanks Deryn for the flies and all the advice. You are a very talent ed tier. I will be spending a lot of time on this site in the future. Have a great season, Greg
John Duncan said on Feb 12, 2014 5:12 AM
I continue to use Deryn as a source for those flies that need special attention. These are the one's that are specific to that stream you fish and become acquainted with. They are the flies that, once identified, are sure to improve your chances the next time you visit this stream.
Charles Gulick said on Jan 7, 2014 7:56 AM
Received my order looks like I will be catching a lot of landlocks. The flies looks like they have a love for tying Thanks for all the information I hope someday I can tie as well as you See you on the stream someday. Thanks Deryn.
Ross and Cristal Farnsworth said on Dec 26, 2013 3:26 AM
I open the flies my wife ordered for me Christmas morning. Beautiful, just what I wanted. They are perfect. Can't wait for trout season in northern Maine. last years was cut short my a family emergency. but next year, Fish river, I am ready for you. Merry Christmas, and thank you, Ross
Charles Gulick said on Dec 6, 2013 10:06 PM
Just getting started tying fly's I could use some help and advice from a pro thank you Charlie.
John Duncan said on Aug 7, 2013 1:22 AM
When I received the first order of flies I was delighted not only by their craftsmanship but as well their unmistakable fish catching quality. The second order proved to be more of the same. I think Deryn gives serious thought,on many levels, to everything he ties.
Herb Tufts said on Jul 4, 2013 2:00 AM
I've been using various sites online to purchase my flies for fishing when I came across Deryn's site. Outstanding quality and beauty in each and every fly. I particularly like the fact that they are targeted for where I fish. I also liked talking directly to Deryn with his wealth of knowledge. Probably will make Squaretail Flies my go to site from now on. Thanks Deryn
George Hodgson said on May 29, 2013 9:25 PM
Deryn was there for me providing me with some excellent floating smelt streamers on very short notice for a northern Maine fishing trip! His quality is unsurpassed! He was a pleasure to deal with and demonstrated a great "working" knowledge of the the salmonid fishery we were heading to...
tom from me said on May 18, 2013 9:54 PM
that black @white fly you are tying looks promising bring somne 14--16b i will pay or your dads rich !!!!
tom from maine said on May 18, 2013 9:50 PM
comming up here and you only tiold your dad i hope you stop at the store so we can talk fishing
John Duncan said on May 13, 2013 8:07 AM
Upon seeing Deryn's flies for the first time I immediately moved to, paraphrasing a comment made by Walter Dette, these flies are "right" and now all I have to do is fish them correctly.
Howard Weinberg said on May 7, 2013 8:34 AM
Deryn was great to work with. I was looking for a particular fly for landlocks (Footer Special) and found a number of new flies to try next time I'm up at Grand Lake Stream and also on a trip to Labrador for big brookies. He also tied up a few special flies from an old master tier to use on a bamboo rod that once belonged to that tier.
Steve, Lindie Blake said on Mar 19, 2013 2:50 AM
Wow what a great bunch of new flies ! The extra touch in your tying shows We are ready to try them.....Thanks so much...Happy fishin

Lance Allaire said on Dec 8, 2012 9:39 PM
Recieved my "Smeltacular" and "Oatman" today. These flies are as well tied as anything out there. Some very cool patterns, too. Thanks

Chris Del Plato said on Jun 27, 2012 9:00 PM
I've known Deryn for many years and have seen many of his flies firsthand. Be confident that in buying flies from Deryn, you will get a product of the highest quality materials and construction. Not only will you get a fly that will stand up to fish after fish, you'll also benefit from his knowledge of the background of the patterns he ties, the proportions the originator intended and how they are to be fished.
tom healy said on Jun 21, 2012 11:37 PM

Dan Dingfelder said on Jun 13, 2012 8:02 PM
I am just amazed at how well Deryn ties! He made me some great stuff and I can't wait to put 'em to the test! Such good service is so hard to find and he absolutely sets the standard.
Sean Fowler said on May 9, 2012 8:00 AM
I found Deryn's web site while looking for old time Maine brook trout flies. I have a couple of favorites and was pleased to find that Deryn ties them both. I have not found many people who even know of these flies, forget someone who can tie them. Deryn was great to work with. He knew just what I was looking for and was very accomodating with some small changes I wanted. Deryn knows how to tie some first class, beautiful flies. Thanks again Deryn
Joshua Forster said on Apr 24, 2012 2:18 AM
Deryn, I received my Rapid River order today. What can I say, Outstanding quality and service; and all at a very reasonable price. It was a pleasure doing business with you. Rest assured, I'll spread the word down here amongst Mid-Atlantic anglers heading to Maine to touch base with you for all their fly tying needs.
Bryan laCombe said on Apr 23, 2012 8:10 AM
Nice! When are we going fishing again. I will be going every weekend in May.
Clay. LaCombe said on Apr 19, 2012 4:40 AM

Nice job Deryn!
Ben Jalbert said on Apr 12, 2012 6:38 AM
Superb flies, outstanding service. You can tell when someone takes pride in their work because it shows, and these flies show it. Thanks Deryn.
Gary Ryan said on Apr 8, 2012 7:59 AM
Use Caution!!! This guy knows how to tie up some beautiful first class flies.Once you order some you will be back for many more. I am putting together another order now. Deryn, thanks for the great flies and the fast shipping.
