Back to original article …

Dave Lomasney – I was born and raised a New Englander, were I love to fly fish, hunt, hike and most of all tie classic streamer and wet flies. I started flyfishing and tying about thirty years ago when I bought a Universal Fly Tying Kit from the Kittery Trading Post here in Maine. Little did I know were it would take me. Simple bucktails at first, Mickey Fin, Blacknose Dace, and Wardens Worry. It was with that first Wardens Worry that I caught my first trout with a fly.
