Jim Bennett – I live in Glasgow Scotland where I was born and grew up.I started fishing in my local canal for perch and roach when I was about 12, forty years ago. I started fly tying at about 14 after I watched a program on TV. I first tied without a vice as I could not afford one. My flies were quite crude to say the least and I can remember the first trout I caught on a small black dry fly. I could not believe it had actually taken my fly. That fish was only about 8 inches, but remains the best fish I have ever caught.

Scott Bernard Scott Bernard – I grew up in Presque Isle Maine and started fishing very young with my father. Back then we had a camp on Cross Lake which is connected by thoroughfare to Square Lake in Northern Aroostook County. Square Lake is a well known for its Brook Trout & Landlocked Salmon. My father wasn’t a fly fisherman trolling only lures on flat lines. We also only fished from ice out until the water warmed up usually the weekend after Memorial Day.

Mike Boyer Mike Boyer – I started tying flies for Trout in the early 1960’s. My folks bought me a little boxed fly tying kit from the local sporting goods store that included a Thompson vise, some hackles and various body and winging materials. A couple of my father’s friends taught me how to cast a fly, and the obsession with flies and fly fishing began.

Peggy Brenner Peggy Brenner – I’ve been tying for a decade and a half now; my specialty is flies that fish well in New England and the Florida Keys. I started with the basics, progressed to Classic Maine Streamers and now Salmon flies with a 1 year apprenticeship through the NH Council for the Arts; Traditional Arts Program.

Bill Chandler Bill Chandler – I have been tying flies for the Angler and the collector since 1978. I discovered fly fishing and fly tying by watching a Canadian angling show one Saturday morning. Since then I have spent a considerable time of my life learning both the old and new techniques of tying flies.

Richard-Connors Richard Connors – Richard lives in southeast Massachusetts and his interest in fly fishing started around the age of 12 after reading Ernie Schwiebert’s “Remembrances of Rivers Past”. A couple years later he started tying flies, a lifelong quest that started over 30 years ago. His interest in streamers really took off after watching Mike Martinek tie at Orvis Boston back in 1999.

Steve Cullen Steve Cullen – I began tying flies to support my fishing but quickly fly tying took on a life of its own. Now I spend much more time tying than I do fishing. Trout flies (particularly dries), then streamers, wet flies, and classic salmon flies was pretty much the order of my acquaintance and mastering of fly tying techniques.

Daniel Despres 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.

Robert Galante Streamer Tyer Robert Galante – I’m a 55 year old fly tier who has been behind the vise since I was 12. I enjoy tying flies of all styles and most recently have been experimenting with wet flies. Both wet flies made popular by Ray Bergman/Don Bastian and the style of wet flies that are commonly fished in the UK. I do love Streamers for their beauty and there ability to catch fish.

Alan Grombacher Alan (Alberta Al) Grombacher – Alan started tying flies shortly after his 8th birthday, in fact the day after his Dad came home with his first pair of bifocals. Alan’s Dad set-up his tying vise after dinner that night, and taught Alan to tye. His first flies were brown hackle peacock wet flies and black/grizzly woolyworms. The first woolyworm that he tyed is still in his fly fishing gear. Alan quickly became the fly tyer for his Dad, Dad’s friends, and his buddies, and has been tying now for over 43 years.

czech republic - Petr Haisman Petr Haisman – Petr has been fishing since the early age of six with his father. His father instilled the skills to catch fish and started a passion for fishing. At age 14, Petr began tying nymphs and dry flies in pursuit of the native Czech Republic grayling. He was raised along side the Jizera River, and his approach of casting tiny dry flies to rising grayling was handsomely rewarded.

Jon Harrang Jon Harrang – Jon lives on a mini-ranch/fixer-upper in central Oregon’s high desert with his wife and three daughters. He has been tying flies since he was in grade school, with a special emphasis on dressing both steelhead and Atlantic salmon patterns. He is relatively new to the streamer game but very interested in improving his skills and continuing to learn more about this style of fly.

Eunan Hendron – I’ve been tying flies since I was about 10 or 11, a direct progression from fishing stillwater team competitions with my father as a young boy. I began tying classic flies (wet, streamer and atlantic salmon) towards the end of 2011, having never tied them before. A pretty steep learning curve, not for the feint of heart, but many thanks are due to the members of various forums who gave me tips and constructive criticism to aid my progression.

Robbie Hiltz Robbie Hiltz – Born in 1975 in a lovely little Annapolis Valley town of Berwick, N.S. I grew up fishing behind my grandparents’ house on the North mountain angling for lovely little brook trout. The brook and stream were small as I but back then everything seemed so big. Fast forward 20 years and I was still fishing but the worm and alder was replaced with rapalas and spinning reels and the quarry was now anything that a person could catch.

Ryan Houston Ryan Houston – I am a Veterinary surgeon working in Co. Fermanagh in Northern Ireland but if I didn’t have to work I would spend all day fishing and tying flies. I grew up fishing the river lagan and we had an active competetion scene that forced me to become innovative in my fishing and fly tying. I won the ITFFA national rivers championship and represented Ireland at age 20 then 2 years later I repeated that success.

Tuomas-Iso-Ahola_head Tuomas Iso-Ahola – I was born in Kalmari (Saarijärvi, Finland) 1983. My fishing history began when I was four years old. My father took me with him to fish with a hook and worm. In 2005 I started to fly fish and was instantly ”hooked”. Fly fishing is my lifestyle and my favorite places to fish are the rivers.

Kevin Kirkelie Kevin Kirkelie – In having a Grandfather who was a avid fisherman, I was hooked at a early age. So…from my dad’s handy craftsmanship, he made me a homemade vise to start tying with, so that set the stage for what turned out to be my greatest artistic passion ever.

Cory Koenig – I was born in Kelowna, British Columbia and raised there until the age of 5, absorbing the most awesome art of fly tying from my father and grandfather. I soon found that my passion was tying flies that fooled any fish… in any waters. Using creations to imitate a certian fly, bug or invertibrae to distract Mission Creek bound sockeye and trout species in every S.E.K.I.D. pond above the massive Okanagan Lake, brought me pleasure and calmed me in a way that nothing does to this day.

Val Kropiwnicki Val Kropiwnicki – I have been making art, mostly functional steel, for over 25 years now but it has been in the last 3 years that I finally figured out how to combined my 2 passions – fly fishing and metal sculpture. With my artistic tying I try to create forms that hark to the history of the craft yet strive toward it’s future.

steve labrecque Steve Labrecque – Steve is 55 years old and has been tying streamers for over 35 years. He has one son and four grandchildren to pass on his fishing passion to. He has specialized in tandem streamers for many of those years but enjoys tying on long shank hooks as well. Steve was raised near the water and he grew up in the Sebago Lake area. Both his father and grandfather had fishing camps on the lake, and fishing and streamers run deep in his blood.

deryn_lacombe_head Deryn LaCombe – Deryn has been seated behind a vise tying streamer flies for over 35 years. After accidentally shooting himself in the foot in 1978 while target shooting on a fishing trip, and oblivious to the impact it would have on defining his life and who he would become, he became the proud recipient of a fly tying kit from an aunt and uncle as a get-well gift.

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.

Kelly Lovelady Kelly Lovelady – I was born and raised in Northeast Texas. I have had a love of fishing my whole life. I remember being a very small child, and fishing with a cane pole. My dad taught me how to fish. I guess fishing in my family is in our genes. I graduated to a Zebco rod and reel when I was about 11 years old. I didn’t own my own fishing equipment until the early 1980’s. I was on a hiking, and fishing trip, in upstate NY. That is where I saw my first fly angler.

David Mac David Mac – I have been tying flies since 1964 and it has brought me, countless hours of enjoyment. As a young guest at the United Fly Tyers meetings in Boston, MA I was introduced to Streamers by many of the Great Tyers. In the 1970′s I spent a decade providing streamers to many of the best Maine Fly Shops and Camps.

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 Choggagoggmanchoggagoggchabunagunagogg; commonly known as (Webster Lake).
Jim is presently on the Pro Staff of Daiichi Hooks and Regal Vise.

Charlie Mann Streamers Charlie Mann – 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.

CAndrew Marshall Streamers Andrew Marshall – Andrew has been tying for some 35 or so years, much of that time in-hand without the aid of a vise. The first fly he tied was done in hand, with a bait hook, probably a #6 or #8, using gray mallard for tail. It was then palmered, with a second one up front as hackle. The tying thread was smuggled out from his mother’s sewing stuff. The fly was stolen from him almost before the cement had dried, and so he figured, if it was that good, he must be on to something and made more.

Mike MartinekMike Martinek Jr. – In the 1960’s a young Mike Martinek began attending the newly formed United Fly Tyers meetings in his home state of Massachusetts. Enamoured with streamer flies, a frequent subject at these meetings, he began tying the patterns of early streamer masters like Herb Welch, Bill Edson and Carrie Stevens. At one particular meeting, fly historian Austin Hogan took note and offered to take Mike under his wing, showing him the characteristic differences between particular styles of streamers like those of Mrs. Stevens.

Davie McPhail Davie McPhail – I live in the south west of Scotland where I grew up, the best known rivers in the area are the Stinchar, the Nith, Girvan and the river Doon where I was a ghillie. I didn’t really start fly fishing until I was twenty just after I got married my fly tying started at much the same time. When I was learning to cast I lost many a fly up a tree and broke the hook of the fly on stones on my back cast.

Dwayne MillerDwayne Miller – I was born and presently reside on Prince Edward Island, Canada. I’ve been chasing trout around PEI since the age of 5 and found out about flyrods at 12. I continued to fish both for a few more years but in 1988 that all changed as my good friend and mentor, Scott Mitchell turned me onto chasing Atlantic salmon with the flyrod. This was a life changing moment, and I’ve been on a mad whirl’wind ride chasing these magnificent fish ever since.

Marcelo Morales – I began fly fishing in the early seventies. Jorge Donovan and Bebe Anchorena were my mentors, they were fantastic casters and know the rivers intimately. Both were very good friends of Joe Brooks and it was from him that they learnt the way of the big streamers and monster browns. Just to make my life easier, I build bamboo rods and fish them a lot along my country. My mother paints watercolors, and my father painted with oils when he was young so I think fly fishing in my case is another form of art and I try to feel like an artist creating something unique every time I tie a fly, build a rod or fish.

scott_murdockScott Murdock- I started tying flies in the 80’s and it wasn’t long before I made a visit to The American Museum of Fly Fishing in Manchester VT to visit a family rod that was displayed there. I noticed the Atlantic Salmon Fly plates that were then on display. Realizing that I actually had an idea of how these things were constructed (yet knowing that I had a lot to learn) I drank the proverbial “Kool-aid” and embarked on the process of learning to tie display patterns.

Don Ordes Don Ordes – Mr. Fantasy Fly. I don’t know how to describe myself as a fly tier, so I don’t know anyone else could, at least and be accurate. I enjoy all kinds of tying and then some which aren’t even kinds one can explain. I am serious at times, but most times not. I enjoy flies for fishing, but not the ones anyone else fishes.

Loretta Parent Loretta Parent -I have been tying flys for 3 years now and have enjoyed learning everything I can about the art of fly tying. I am very passionate about this pastime and love to pass on and share what I know to anyone that is interested. I started a fly fishing club for women last year called “Fly Girls of New Brunswick” and hope to start a fly tying club as well. My favourite place to fish is anywhere on the Miramichi drainage system.

Bob Petti Bob Petti – Bob Petti is a fly fisherman and fly tyer from the Catskill Mountain region of New York. Like so many other fly tyers, he started his journey innocently. “All I wanted was the ability to tie the Royal Wulff, Elk Hair Caddis, Adams, and Gold Ribbed Hare’s Ear. I didn’t have much money and it wasn’t easy to buy flies at the time. Heck I couldn’t even afford a decent pair of waders back then, so I thought a small investment in tying flies would pay off in the long run.” A couple decades later his one-shoe-box hobby has grown to a full blown identity.

Glenn Peckel Glenn Peckel – I started fly tying shortly after going with a friend whose father had arranged for us to spend a day with a co-worker of his who fly-fished. It was early May and Hendrickson’s were hatching on his local stream. He showed us the book “Selective Trout “ and then he tied a gold ribbed hare’s ear wet fly. Watching him fish that fly and seeing the trout that he landed was as magical a moment as I have ever seen.

Barry Phillips Barry Phillips – Born in 1953 and have been tying flies since I was 14. Started out spin fishing and became interested in fly fishing and tying through a childhood friend. I was given a Herters Manual and taught myself. I met a man named Reg Denny who ran a flytying shop in Edmonton and sat in on one of the courses he was teaching at the time. He asked me after three classes if I would be interested in assisting him and there began 25 years of teaching and a lifelong friendship.

jesse_samson_headJesse Samson – Jesse was born in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia on Canada’s eastern coast. He began his journey of fly fishing at a very young age when he found and repaired his father’s old Shakespeare fly rod. From there, it was a natural progression into fly tying, making use of vise grips as an ad-hoc tying vise, scavenged scraps of fur, hair and feathers, and pilfered threads from his mother’s sewing basket. His early years seen his fishing the rivers and lakes of Isle Madame, but he now haunts the waters in and around Pictou County where he resides with my wife Angela and son William.

Cameron Sangster Cameron Sangster – I was 9 years old and my grandfather was an avid Atlantic salmon and brook trout fly fisherman. He would take yearly trips to the Gaspe region of Quebec to fish the Matapedia and other rivers. I was introduced to fly fishing by him and my father at a private fishing club they belonged to. One time before one of his salmon trips my grandfather placed some used salmon flies on the table. He asked me to tie them as close as possible to the original. From then on, after taking a few lessons, I have been tying off and on for 35 yrs.

Peter Simonson Peter Simonson – Peter has been fly tying for about 13 years, initially just creating flies needed for fishing. He enjoys tying Rangeley style streamers. He became interested in tying these flies in about 2006. Peter has tied at the International Fly Tying Symposium and a few of his flies appear in John Mordock’s “Fly Fishing Two-Story Lakes and Reservoirs.”

Jeff Smith on Streamers 365Jeff Smith – I have been tying flies since 1974. At that time I was living in Argentia Newfoundland. Due to the number of Scheduled Atlantic Salmon Rivers in the area all our fishing had to be fly fishing. I was lucky enough to receive a fly tying kit that year and have never looked back. In the ensuing years I have lived and fly-fished in many parts of Canada and the USA. My favourite tying styles include streamers (both feather-wing and buck-tails), Atlantic salmon hair-wings and soft hackle wet flies in Sylvester Nemes style.

Jamie "Mutt" Web Jamie (Mutt) Webb – Born in Brockville ON, the son of an RCMP officer. Because of Dad’s work, we moved every 6-7 years. Digby NS, Amherst NS, Cardigan PEI & Truro NS were all whistlestops on my fishing journey. A short stint in Sackville NB as well. Living in these places has afforded me the privilege of fishing some of the best waters in Atlantic Canada, and meeting some of the finest people anywhere. I started fishing on my 5th birthday, receiving a spincast rod as a gift. Fishing off the Digby wharf brought in all kinds of different fish.
