About Us

Noses up is brought to you by two brothers who have a passion for chasing wild trout with dry flies.


We started this site to record our adventures. It's our way of holding on to the amazing memories the streams have given us, as well as sharing them with others. We hope you enjoy, and please don't hesitate to reach out sometime. We love hearing from our readers! 



Travis Figg

Travis is a husband, father of 3 little ones, writer, and fly fisherman. He grew up with a spinning rod in hand, throwing soft plastic worms to bass and crappie. One summer morning, he found an old bamboo fly rod while cleaning out the garage with his dad. He fell in love with rising trout and hasn’t looked back since. He spends his fishing days chasing wild trout with dry flies in the small, secluded Midwestern spring creeks he calls his home waters. He and his brother have paired their love of fly fishing and writing to create this site.
