Some of my earliest memories are of fishing with my Dad. I would sit on the bank and look thru his fly box. I thought the flies were some of the most beautiful things I had ever seen.
I started tying flies in the winter of 2011. My Husband gave me a beginner kit, as I had been asking to learn. I spent every spare minute tying on a t.v. tray in our living room. I think I drove our kids nuts.
Around the same time, I learned spey casting and I am now a partner at Spey Casting North East, where I enjoy teaching two handed casting. This seemed natural, as I wanted to chase steelhead and salmon. Tying these flies is as much of a challenge as the fish themselves. But I love learning and helping others to improve their skills.
The highlight of my tying career was being invited to tie at Atlantic Salmon Fly International 2018 in Miramichi, Canada. I met so many great people that have influenced my tying and love of the sport.
I hope to give back to this wonderful community, that has given me so much.
