Peter’s Biography

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.” Peter has studied streamer tying under Jack Pangburn and Mike Martinek, and credits FlyTyingForum, ClassicFlyTyingForum and the StreamerList with providing him a rich interactive learning environment for tying streamers and classic Atlantic Salmon flies. His favorite streamer book is Graydon Hilyard’s “Carrie Stevens” which set the standard for research protocol and provenance of streamer patterns. When he’s not tying, Peter is a signal processing systems engineer, and enjoys fly fishing, kayaking, and hiking. He enjoys fishing these Rangeley streamers to bring up big land-locked salmon from deep pools in the upper Connecticut River. Peter has two grown sons, and lives with his wife Lynne in New Hampshire, where they have been pouring money into a small farmhouse for 30 years.

    What a wonderful color combination. I agree Carrie Stevens Book by Graydon Hillard’s is one I go to when tying streamers.
