Loretta Parent – Growing up in Hamilton, Ontario, my sole fishing experience was the occasional trip to Port Dover, Ontario with my dad, a spin rod and package of worms.
It was not until 2007 that I was introduced to fly fishing by a friend Mike MacIlroy and I was instantly hooked. I just had to learn everything I could about it. When Mike told me he tied his own flies I was intrigued, and so during the winter of 07/08 Mike lent me a vice of his and I acquired a few materials and proceeded to soak up and knowledge from whoever would listen to me and learned the basics of fly tying.
