am a very healthy 64 years old. I started tying flys at the age of 14 long before I had ever held a fly rod. I love to make things. I did start fly fishing in my teens and have fished in Canada, Alaska, Africa, Montana, Colorado, New Mexico, Belize, Mexico and Turks and Caicos. My first love is the Rockies.
I own a succesful business, so I am not a professional tier, but my flys are professional grade and I have sold them and donated many to FFF auctions where they have sold well. My favorite hook is your size 18 ''natural bend.''
I do not get to fish as much as I would like - Dallas is not exactly the mecca of fly fishing but I am certainly willing to test, advise and let you use photos.
Last but not least; I am an FFF Certified Fly Casting Instructor.
