There is nothing more exciting than seeing a beautiful fish break the surface for a meal; hearing the fly line slack as a fish is hooked; enjoying the beauty of God’s creation – right here in Ohio, and sharing it all with friends and family. With the FLATLANDERFlyfishing.com website, our goal is to bring to our visitors the excitement of Ohio and Midwestern fly fishing adventures, along with photos and videos that we capture on our journeys.
