    Santas workshop is in full swing!

    Over the years I've made some fly wallets for friends for fun and I keep getting people asking for this or that.

    Cost of materials plus a little for time and talent. There are five standard sizes with 7x4.5" (closed) being the most popular. 8.5x5" 6x5" and 5x4" But it's totally custom so I can do whatever you want. I've done a number from photos of memorable fish. Anything from family crests to river otters, you choose an image or pick from some that I have.

    Materials and Construction: Full grain cowhide and bull hide. High Quality Shearling. Hand punched, hand laced, bonded with Tandy Leather Weld. Horn buttons hand cut, sanded, and polished in my shop.

    Artwork: I’ve been playing with a burning tool for years and it keeps getting funner and I think better. You be the judge. Click on some of the samples below.

    Pricing: Anywhere from $65-$160 depending upon size and details of desired image. Each wallet takes between 3.5-6 hours to create from scratch and cost of Materials is $25 on average. You can do the math. To give you an idea the wallets below were between $135-$160. I can put your initials or name on them as well. I sign, number and date each piece.

    Cash, check, Money order, Credit Card (through paypal) or Trade. If you've got extra gear I bet we can work something out. Or part cash part trade etc... I primarily take paypal for convenience reasons.


    Best,

    I have the 3rd one he ever sold and I just used it today and love it everytime I look at it! One of the best pieces of gear I own; and it looks slick and mine is one-of-a-kind. MacRowdy is the MacDaddy, baby.

    Get 'em now, boys, while the price for such fine craftsmanship is ridiculously low. When MAC hits the big time, smoking fat cigars on the porch of his 8000 square foot log house while overseeing the production of these wallets, you'll wish you'd bought one "way back when".

    Rowdy made the one with the bear for me. I always take mine out after fishing and put it on the shelf where I can see it every time I walk by.
    A great piece of art, and a great tool on the water.

    Mac, it was amazing! The craftsmanship was incredible. I gave it to my boyfriend for his birthday and he said it was the best present he'd ever gotten. Thank you!

    Yuhina, here is one of my personal wallets. After thousands of miles scores of rivers in 9 states it still looks... well judge for yourself. The image is of our No Sports Allowed logo.
