About Me

  • About flytire
    Biography
    I am currently 62 years old who enjoys fly fishing/tying as a hobby not as a religion. Born and raised in a small textile mill village in Southeastern Connecticut.

    I started fly fishing and tying back in 1980 while working in Colorado for a major defense contractor. I lived there until I got layed off in 1991 and moved back to Connecticut to work for another major defense contractor.

    Married and divorced once with no kids to spend ungodly amounts of money on!

  • Signature
    Poor quality materials are destined to discourage beginner tiers and cause greater expense when the time comes to replace them.
