Cheech Pierce

Hometown: Salt Lake City, UT
Fly Tyer


Cheech is a creative fly tyer and angler living in Salt Lake City, Utah. Cheech ties custom flies to target all species; however, his passion is throwing big meaty streamers for trout, as well as chasing large- and smallmouth bass.

Cheech co-founded the website Fly Fish Food with like-minded fly tyer and creator Curtis Fry. Together they create video fly tutorials, review materials and tools, and generally rant about fly tying and fishing.

When Cheech isn’t tying or fishing he is usually pestering his wife and three kids and inadvertently booby-trapping the house with stray hooks, as well as a thin layer of marabou scraps and tinsel.
