Glenn’s Biography

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.

Now it is over four decades later and fly tying has given me a lifetime of memories I have been fortunate enough to demonstrate at the Dutch Fly Fair in Holland, the Chatsworth Angling fair in England as well as numerous FFF national conclaves. It is the history of fly tying that has always interested me. I enjoy tying and reproducing the flies of yesterday. I can’t help but wonder what the originator was thinking as he designed his patterns. For the streamer 365 project I chose to reproduce as closely as possible the flies of Ora Smith that were featured in “Trolling Flies for Trout and Salmon” by Dick Stewart and Bob Leeman. I love to tie steelhead and salmon flies. When I became involved in this project I couldn’t help but think how fortunate I was to be included with so many of the finest streamer tiers working in the world today. I am again fortunate to call so many of them friends but what I would have given to have a streamer 365 reference when I started! I hope you enjoy tying all of the streamers to be featured.

Oh, and when I am not fly tying then I am usually sitting comfortably in my favorite easy chair reading a good book of fishing stories.

    Glenn, can I get you to produce a Winnipesaukee Queen and a Canopache for me? I’m looking to box frame them for a gift for my father in law who owns the Canopache Lodge in Wolfeboro, NH
