Meet this month’s Featured Fly Designer, Jason Goodale. Jason is the master behind MFC’s coveted warm water patterns, like Goodale’s Popper, Goodale’s Frog-Leg Diver and Goodale’s Slider. This bass and pike candy can’t be passed up.
Jason has been tying flies for nearly 30 years, starting when he was in 5th grade. While he started out fishing for trout in Colorado, the last 15 years have had him focused on warm water species. The photo below is where all the magic happens:
When he’s not tying flies, Jason stays busy as a Captain for the Loveland Fire Rescue Authority. He’s been in the fire service for 18 years and is a second-generation firefighter in Loveland.
Jason and his wife Sarah have twin 10 year old boys who love hockey, so the family spends a lot of time traveling around Northern Colorado hauling boys and gear from rink to rink.
