If you’re looking for an awesome way to trick out your favorite fly rod, check out this artist and what he can do.

Tim Johnson is a professional fly fishing guide and instructor. But when he’s not on the water, he’s turning cork into beautiful creations inspired by the fish he catches.

They’re called Timmy Grips and if you’ve got a particular fish or design you want to immortalize, he can make it happen.

Tim’s work isn’t limited to fishing rods. He’s also a very talented painter, has prints available, and does commission work.

Those of you familiar with Hush gear and their YouTube channel will recognize Tim’s “Firebull” design on their new gear. Tim is also a recreational therapist, using fly fishing to treat autism and veterans with PTSD.
