Guest Speaker & Tying Demonstrations

Need A Guest Speaker?

I am a Fly Designer, Photographer, Author, Instructor and Materials Expert who has spent more than 25 years behind the vice. My unique thoughts on Saltwater Pattern Development will have you rethinking materials, techniques and the way you tie flies.

I enjoy instructing in person and on camera and have made several instructional videos. I am known for my willingness to help fly tiers young and old improve their skills at the vise. I am known as an entertaining and knowledgeable guest speaker, with an animated sense of humor and a high-energy personality that draws in the audience.
