June 7th, 2017: Ridge & Valley TU Presentation

I would like to thank the Ridge & Valley TU Chapter for inviting me to tie a few patterns for some of their members on June 7th, 2017. I demonstrated the Renegade dry fly and the Isonychia Wiggle
Emerger.
Both step-by-step tutorials can be found by clicking the links to the fly names above. It was a great time and I hope that you were able to take something away from the demonstration, that you will be able to apply to your own tying.

It’s awesome when you have a whole room engaged and everyone discussing different aspects of patterns; as we all can learn different things from each other. There is a wealth of knowledge out there and to be able to share what I know with others, is what always makes this so much more enjoyable.

Arts of the Angler: Nov 5th and 6th, 2016

Even though I have been fishing since I was 3, I have only been tying flies for about 4 years, and no matter how long I do this, the urge to expand my knowledge will only get greater. So for me to share a table with another Tyer is always awesome in more ways than one. There’s much in the way of material discussions, techniques and history, along with a lot of laughing and thread breaking 😂😂
