Featured Fly Designer: Brian Bergeson

Musky mongers listen up–it’s not all about you. Taimen fishermen love Bergeson’s Double Demon, too! ;)

One of MFC fly designer Brian Bergeson’s customers, Mike Lee, sent him this photo of a nasty taimen that ate a Double Demon like it was possessed by the devil. This is Mike Lee, below being all like…yeah.

Here’s a bit more about Mr. Bergeson: Brian calls Duluth, Minnesota home. As a Minnesota native, he cut his teeth honing his art of fishing for local Brook Trout, Walleye and lake Superior Salomon and Steelhead. Joining the 1999 USA Youth Fly Fishing team elevated his interest in fly fishing and furthered his skill set. Bria battled alcohol abuse in his 20s and lost interest in fishing. Missing friendships and North Shore Steelhead, Brian became sober a few years later. Around the same time, he met a long lost friend in the middle of the Brule River wilderness who reignited his passion for fly fishing. Since then he has been on e of the fly fishing pioneers of Esox Fly Fishing in the Midwest, and continues to chase fish all over the country with a fly rod Brian operates Rip Lips Custom Musky Flies and is a signature tier for MFC. Is is also a Field pro/staff member of TFO fly rids., Scientific Anglers and Fishbum Outfitters.

Way to make some killer patters, Brian. We’re so glad to have you in the family.

Double Demon. Just a little musky bacon. Oh, and taimen like bacon.
