Notes: The Silver Doctor is an iconic streamer and fly that has taken many forms over the decades. The Silver Doctor dates back to the 1800’s and the traditions of the British angling culture. Dan has been experimenting with style over the past few years and has developed a distinct style with some of his streamers and incorporated the elements of the Silver Doctor into the fold.
Daniel Despres – I am an avid fly fisher, fly tyer and outdoorsman and have been for many years. As a youngster, I grew up in a supportive and loving family that was not much into either fishing or outdoor activities. Nevertheless, through self propelled interest and friends sharing the same hobby as I, fishing slowly but surely grew into a full time obsession. Throughout the years, I have fished many rivers and lakes in the province of Quebec.
