Barry Phillips – Born in 1953 and have been tying flies since I was 14. Started out spin fishing and became interested in fly fishing and tying through a childhood friend. I was given a Herters Manual and taught myself. I met a man named Reg Denny who ran a flytying shop in Edmonton and sat in on one of the courses he was teaching at the time. He asked me after three classes if I would be interested in assisting him and there began 25 years of teaching and a lifelong friendship.
