Safet Nikocevic: Self taught, hand fly tier, Safet was introduced to the wonders of fly fishing and fly tying at very young age.

Born and raised in Montenegro (former Yugoslavia) near the finest rivers with no fishing store anywhere to be found and where hooks were real treasure. He spends his free time tying by hand and using simple materials such as grandmothers treads sheep’s wool or a chicken’s feather. He immigrated to New York City in 1993 and here he brought his fist vise Dyne-King Aristocrat #627 in a fishing store that he never saw before, Urban Angler NY, and started commercially tying for them. Safet spends free time on the finest river, East Branch in Upstate New York. Safet’s flies are very durable and productive and he is involved with fly tying demonstrations at fly fishing shows and various fly shops all over New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Connecticut. Safet continues his fly tying pursuits through participation in some of the industry’s biggest shows, such as the International Fly Tying Symposium. Safet is a very proud full time employee of the piano company Steinway and Sons where he makes flies during his lunch breaks and everybody that knows him calls him a fly maker. He is also very active and very respectful Karate Instructor in Astoria’s Dojo. Using only the highest quality materials in a very creative ways, Safet flies are excellent very durable and effective.
