About Winks Flies & Guiding

Charles "Wink" Weary

Wink is a licensed guide living on the banks of The Flambeau River in Price Co. Wisconsin. He is a fourth generation Fly Fisherman and fly tier from the Upper Midwest. In 1999 Wink decided he had to start chasing musky with a fly while working at a resort in the musky capital of the world Boulder Junction Wi.  He learned the hard way that musky don't come easy, and after three Seasons of not catching a Musky, he had almost lost hope. He had to find a fly that could be fished with confidence. Obsessed after many unsuccessful seasons and fishing all the "go to" flies, Wink decided to take matters into his own hands. He bought materials and locked himself in his tying room. The next spring he Took his new magic formula and caught dozens of Musky that next season. Wink was landing fish so often he had to share his flies and the water he loves with others interested in the insane sport of Musky Fly Fishing. Wink's goal is to make the impossible possible for anglers who have always dreamt of catching a musky on the fly. Wink lives for rowing clients down the storied rivers of Northern Wisconsin, creating lasting memories, and tying his custom line of Musky & Smallmouth flies.

"I honestly Believe it's the most realistic musky fly on the market, I have caught hundreds of Musky on it." Wink

When Wink isn't on the water or tying flies he spends his time with his wife Annie and raising their young sons William Wade and Walter Wolfe. Wink believes in catch and release with no exceptions,exclusively fishes with single barbless hooks, and believes in protecting the mighty musky for the next generation.
