“I cant thank you enough for offering your fly tying class! I had no idea that I would enjoy learning to tie flies as much as I did, and assuring everyone that you are there to answer any questions made me very comfortable” -Lisa…
I’m proud to announce that I will be part of a new Kids On The Fly chapter being held in Northwest, NJ!
The art of fly tying, as with anything in life that we enjoy; is a never-ending learning experience which continues to grow right along with us as we get older. We find ourselves up all night spending countless hours behind the vise tying up patterns we hope will bring fish to our nets, fishing every minute we can, attending shows, watching seminars, asking questions and deciphering the answers, reading books and sifting through the history of what came before us; all while trying to retain what we have taken in so we can apply it to our own personal use on the water.
We have all seen first hand the positive influence that fly fishing has had on our own lives, anyone who has worked with/participated in PHWFF/Casting for Recovery or the many volunteer organizations which promote healing through tying and fishing; knows how much of an impact it really has. It creates and opens up a whole new world. Someone who once felt like they were alone, now has an entirely new community to converse with. Working with my Project Healing Waters chapter has repeatedly proven this time and time again with new participants. We also meet countless people in our travels, some of which turn into friendships with that stay with us throughout our lives. We even find that over time we have created these extended families that we look forward to seeing at events, that we laugh with and share stories.

I have been invited to join the “Meet the Bloggers” panel along with Tim Cammisa, Tim Flagler, Josh Miller, John Shaner, Son Tao and Walt Young.
The show goes on for two days and the ballroom will be filled with fly tyers and seminars, so bring a notebook, a pen and all of your questions as there is much to learn!
Tomorrow, Saturday, November 4th at 1 PM I will be giving a fly tying demonstration during the Arts of the Angler show, which is being held at the Ethan allen hotel in Danbury Connecticut.
I will be demonstrating different fly patterns using the Flymen Fishing Company Wiggle Shanks. These Shanks give more movement to your nymphs and emergers that can help entice some of those picky trout.
If you’re in the area please stop over and enjoy the show! There Will be two days full of fly tying demonstrations and presentations from many people. So as I always recommend; grab a notebook, a pen and bring all of your questions; as there is a wealth of knowledge out there that many of us enjoy sharing with you!
