About Us

Welcome to Saint Maries Flies. Thanks for visiting our website. My name is Derek Darst I live in St. Maries, Idaho along the St. Joe river. I was born and raised here and have been fly fishing for about 30 years. I started tying flies in the early 90’s. I specialize in trout flies and deer hair bass bugs. I started Saint Maries flies in 2013. I will be adding lots more fly patterns and fly tying materials to the site in the near future. If there is anything on here you are looking for that’s not on the site ( different patterns or are wanting a different colored bass bugs, etc.) Shoot me an email I will gladly do custom orders.

Tight lines,

Derek Darst
