I caught the bug for tying bugs (flies) about 16 years ago and I have not stopped. I tie almost every night out of sheer paranoia of not having the right fly at the right time on the right water. I have learned a ton and have improved my skills from watching and learning from other members of SJRVFF. You cannot find a better club with so many accomplished fly tyers than SJRVFF. I have a few “original” variations of flies that I am proud to call my own. From my tying bench and with the help of Terry Wittorp, the KVCTU / SJRVFF Tie-a-thon has taken off; donating over 33,000 hand-tied flies to various causes.
