Owner, Fly tying Artist

The simple about me low down ... I was brought up 1st born girl with 3 sisters and 2 brothers. I was a Daddys girl right from the start. Wherever he went I wanted to go . Whatever he was doing I wanted to learn about. He taught me so much and instilled in me a great passion for the outdoors. He was also passionate about family, honor, integrity, hard work & self worth. All traits I hope to carry through life & pass on to my 4 Sons. Some of my fondest memories with Dad were family camping & fishing trips in the wilderness of Maine & NH. and spending time at our family camps. My Dad loved to fish and I loved to tag along❤️. So the fly tying love I have ...how did it even start ?? I went from a hairdresser to fly tying ....🎣 I think it goes way back ...My Dad was a hunter & a well know butcher and had his own shop . I loved helping my Dad in his butcher shop from a young age . Something most girls would shy away from, but I got to hang out with him . Every so often he would bring the bucktails and hides to local tiers and I would tag along. I was young & fascinated by the the flies created from the goods he brought in . Spinning fly carousels in the shops and listening to my Dad talk fishin stories with the owners. Many, many years went by .... and one day my Dad was showing me some mangled old flies in his box that were his " favorites" he remarked. He asked if I remembered them from way back getting them from a tier. He said he couldn't find the patterns anymore and wished he could. So it began........... I got a vise and materials from a friend that just so happened to be getting out of tying . And I started to tie, self taught with a basic book. Some scraggly attempts at 1st ! Yet my Dad always told me they were beautiful when I'd show him. The patterns I attempted to replicate for him were made with love .❤ He always told me I had talent and an artistic eye and to stick with it . He always believed in me..... After he passed I created more and more . Filling the void of missing him , I took to my vise for comfort...and still do. He was such a great Sportsman, fisherman and most of all an amazing Dad.....he is truly missed with all my heart..... he gave me what I needed to raise 4 amazing Sons of my own .... I see him in each of them in their own ways ❤ Not only filling a void with my tying, but with all the fisherman & women I have met & I speak too. Listening to their fishing stories and thanking me for my beautiful flies I create....fills my ❤️ & soulSoul. Im truly loving what I do. Call it a passion, a journey, a legacy and I'm just going to keep on tying .......... I want to leave behind something for generations ahead to enjoy ....
