Jim Malo – Jim began tying flies back in the 1950’s during the long winter seasons. Whenever there was a big snow storm, Jim would tie until the wee hours of the morning as it was certain to have no school that day. Dry flies were the order of the day and those bass were going to be on guard as the bugs often attracted eight pounders in Lake Chargoggagoggmanchauggagoggchaubunagungamaugg; commonly known as (Webster Lake).
Jim is presently on the Pro Staff of Daiichi Hooks and Regal Vise.
