Growing up near the Juniata River, a premier Smallmouth fishery, Nate quickly became addicted to the art of Smallmouth fishing. Spending almost all of his free time on the river has turned Nate into a Smallmouth fanatic and his love of fishing grew from his bronzeback obsession.
Over the past few years, Nate has focused his sights on many different forms of fishing. Although Smallmouth are still his first love, Nate also enjoys targeting Trout, Largemouth Bass, and various Esox species (Walleye, Muskie, Pickerel, etc...). You will always find Nate welding both conventional tackle as well as fly fishing gear.
Nate can almost always be found in his NuCanoe on the Juniata or Susquehanna River, but he also fishes most Central Pa Lakes and Streams - including Penns Creek, Tea Creek, Honey Creek, Walker Lake, Faylor Lake or Lake Raystown.
Outside of fishing, Nate is a geek... A serious geek... Extremely geeky... He has been doing Social Media Consulting and Web/Graphic Design for many of the industries biggest names including: Pete Maina, The Next Bite, Rage Tail Lures, Dave Lefebre and many more. Feel free to contact him if you have any interest in his portfolio or services.

Brandon Matthews has been fly fishing for 16 years and has been tying flies for 14 year. He cut his teeth fishing small wild trout streams in Central Pennsylvania learning and refining his fly fishing techniques on some of the toughest fish in the area. He can be found casting a fly on several of the local fisheries whether it Penns Creek, Spring Creek, Honey Creek and Kish Creek or several of the area’s small local stream like Tea Creek, Strodes Run and Lickin Creek to just name a few. His forte is nymph fishing but he enjoys casting Dries and emergers to rising fish, swing Wets down and across or fishing North Country Spiders upstream.
For the past several years he’s been a production fly tier, tying hundreds of flies each year for several shops on the east coast and for several local fly fishermen. Brandon enjoys the difficulties in learning new tying techniques and the challenge of creating new patterns for specific streams and specific applications.
Brandon’s an active member of Team Freestone, a competitive fly fishing team, and competes at local competitions. He also competes at USA Regional competitions, qualifying last year for the USA National Fly Fishing Championships, with his goal to make the USA Fly Fishing Team in the near future.
Brandon enjoys teaching anything fly fishing or fly tying. He is committed to supplying everyone, through “The Fly Fishing Corner”, with the best equipment reviews, best technique instruction and the best flies for the local area. He’s strives to supply everyone with the information they need to be successful on the stream.
