1966, my dad was only 5. I started maybe 3 or 4 years ago. First fly I tied that caught a fish was a Zebra midge. Catching fish on my own ties is very rewarding. But I get more enjoyment watching my friends catch fish on flys I have tied.

1974 - learned from my dad on the old Thompson whiz wheel model A. Mickey Finn was my first pattern. I still have the vise (retired) and the fly(!).

I started tying my own flies back in 1973. A friend got me started fly fishing and when I went back to him for some more flies he said I was going to have to tie my own or buy them.....

It's been five or six years since I started tying. Fished hard in other ways for a half a decade. Winter would find me with a bucket of minnies at Brunners.

Started tying at the BPS in Harrisburg. Bobby Clouser and the crew run a fantastic (free) mid-winter tying clinic. This isn't an ad, but they've been quietly adding to our ranks every year.
