I'd like to focus on fly tying, though I am happy to answer questions about fly tackle and techniques. Any questions regarding fly tying tools, materials and techniques are welcome, and I always make a point to link to further reference materials (websites, books and videos) in my AllExperts answers. I am especially interested in teaching beginners how to get started in fly tying...it can be frustrating until you get the hang of it!
I have been a fly fisherman and fly tier for 28 years. I started both flyfishing and tying when I was 12 years old, and never stopped. I specialize in trout in both rivers and stillwaters, but have branched out into pike, bass and saltwater species. The contents of my fly boxes number in the thousands, all tied by me.
