“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…
❄️When the snow is falling and the rivers are high there’s no better way to shake off that cabin fever than by tying a few new patterns to stock those boxes. ❄️
I will be teaching two patterns this Sunday, March 4 at Ramsey outdoor in Succasunna New Jersey and the class is free! Just bring your vise and tools and come on down!
Class starts at 10am!
The Succasunna location is:
281 Route 10 East
Succasunna, NJ 07876
If you’re heading to The Fly Fishing Show at the new location in Edison NJ this week, stop on over to the Regal Vise – Regal Fly Tying Vise booth on Friday! I’ll be tying up a variety of Bass Agitators from 9-11am. Saturday I’ll be over at the Hardy Fly Fishing / Hodgman booth so come by an see us this weekend!
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.

For many fishermen, suckers aren’t something that you purposely go out and target. Especially not on a river that’s famous for big, wild, brown trout. But not too long ago on the Delaware river, that’s exactly what happened.
“Without a thought in my head aside from wondering what kind of moron wears flip flops when I know damn well there are plenty of spiders running full speed over these rocks. ::Puke:: As I glanced upwards and out of the corner of my eye, about to make a comment, I caught a glimpse of the dark shadows moving in the pool at the bottom of the riffle.
“What the hell are those..”
And just like that, I forgot we were there for trout..”
