Charlie’s Biography

I started tying fly’s after receiving a fly tying kit for Christmas in 1960, while stationed in Thule, Greenland. I’m self taught an have been tying for over 50 years. During the 50 years of tying I have tried to specialize in tying tandem and single hook streamers. Also I have developed a passion for tying Atlantic style salmon hair-wings. This has been a wonderful relaxing hobby for me. I have designed several streamer patterns, and many hair-wing patterns. Several of my fly’s have been published in major fly tying books, and in Fly Tyer magazine. I am starting to slow down when I turned 80, but I will continue as long as I can.

    Charlie, you and I are in the same boat. I also started tying back in the 60’s. My mother-in-law lived in Dennysville Maine. My first fly was the green cosseboom. Fly tying has been very relaxing over then years. I spend about an hour at the desk. I love tying trout flies streamers and nymphs mostly. I am from West Michigan…
