An inside look: Fulling Mill designer ‘Cheech’ and what’s in his fly box?

Published: 10th October 2018 | Author: Fulling Mill

We’ve gathered a handful of FM designers to delve into their fishy brains in better hopes of finding out a little bit more about them, how they fish, what they’re fishing and what they’re up to!

Greetings, Cheech how are you these days? Hopefully, you’re finding some time to get away to your local or not so local fishery to get some good days in on the water. Would you mind taking the time to answer a couple of questions below?  This is to get our consumers better acquainted with our designers and give them a better understanding of who you are and what you enjoy doing most… fishing!

FM – So, CHEEEEEEEEEEEECH give us a little background? Who you are and where do you reside?

FM: Good stuff.  Between the kids and the shop, I’m sure you’re kept busy!

FM – How do you spend your time when not fishing?

FM: It certainly shows in your videos posted on YouTube… the tying that is, not the biking and shooting of firearms… At least I don’t think so!

FM – When fishing, what are your favorite species to chase?

FM: Browns are tough to beat, I’ll have to agree. Nothing like pulling up a big ole’ slab of butter.

FM – Do you prefer fishing in lakes/ponds or rivers/streams?

FM: Sounds a bit dangerous but I’m sure you’re up for the challenge!

FM – Drift boat or wading, which do you prefer?

FM: I suppose where you live, fishing the bigger rivers is probably the best avenue to take in order to get a chance at some big fish.

FM – What’s your favorite food item to pack for lunch/snack?

FM: Can’t argue with the cured meats and cheeses! I know you to be a fiend for the Mt. Dew as well.

FM – If given the choice, what fly would you fish for a whole day? Nymph, streamer, dry, emerger, wet (or salt if applicable) and why?

FM: I was going to guess the Complex Twist Bugger in brown! I will say though; the Articulated Trout Slider is a killer sight fishing fly in any color combo.

FM – What is your tried and true method of choice when fishing?

FM: Very well said. Lake fishing for trout can be and is so much fun.

FM – What would be your most memorable catch?

FM: Hah! I bet that was a nice unexpected surprise. There really is nothing like dead drifting streamers on a tight lining rig… I bet that fish was pretty.

FM – What destinations (if any) are on your bucket list and have you already been there?

FM: Couldn’t find fault in any of those choices. We hope you accomplish those!

Thanks for taking the time to sit down and have a chat with us Cheech.
