Darc Knobel got bit by the fly-fishing bug in a big way . He started tying flies in the 70s and commuting from Oregon to Washington on a weekly basis to fish the lakes and spring creeks. Darc now owns a fly shop in Ephrata Washington called The Desert Fly Angler. He has fished his fly patterns thru out the west, Alaska and British Columbia for trout, steelhead and salmon as well as the warm salt waters of Christmas Island the Bahamas, Mexico's Yucatan and Belize for tarpon, bonefish, permit, snook and anything else that would eat flies. He was the first fly-fishing guide for Carp in Washington and was instrumental in putting Carp on the map as a great game fish.
