The Tuck Cast 

           ... With A  Splash Of Bourbon 

 A podcast with the guys from Tuckaseegee Fly Shop 

The Tuckaseegee Fly Shop Crew host special in studio guest, Braden Miller of Miller Time Flies!  Booby the Bearded Wonder, Coach Dale Diesel Collins, and Big Mess enjoy conversation with Braden about his quick accent thru the ranks of the fly fishing industry.  

Braden was introduced to fly tying at the early age of eight by his grandmother and he has not looked back.  Braden's brand is rapidly rising and the sky is the limit.  Braden is a Norvise Ambassador, TFO Ambassador, District Angling Ambassador, and just last year launched the J. Stockard Fly Fishing Jr Pro Tyer. 

 

Braden was on the cover of the Spring 2020 issue of Fly Fishing & Tying Journal.  His featured article can be read at the Miller Time Flies website that is linked below.  

Braden is living the life that many of us never thought was possible at fifteen.  Listen as Braden talks of adventures for various species of fish and what inspires him at the vise.

Tying video by Braden Miller in the Riversage Journal

5 1/2" Feather Game Changer Tied On The August 23rd Norvise Facebook Live Event.

Braden tied live on the Norvise Facebook page this past Sunday. Norvise put out several polls on Facebook and Instagram and let their followers vote on what they wanted to see Braden tie... a 5 1/2" Feather Game Changer or a Micro Feather Game Changer.  The votes were counted and the larger Feather Game Changer was the winner, but not by much.  Below you will find a general material list you will need to tie your own 5 1/2 Feather Game Changer.  You have the choice of what color materials you want to use to imitate the baitfish of your choosing.
