Accomplishments Recognized.....Humbled and Thanks

I have been tying streamers for about ten years. The first were complete awful wrecks I must say. But fortunately there were a few very talented streamer tyers out there who were gracious enough to comment very constructively and help guide me to become much better. While you look upon a streamer that has come from your making and can find beauty and accomplishment in its design, but to have wonderful comments placed upon it by your fellow fly tyers is the ultimate tribute.

I have been fortunate enough to have a streamer of mine published along side the works of several fine streamer tyers who hail from all over the world.

In the latest issue of "FLY FUSION" magazine is the article. It was placed by Darren MacEachern.


"Adirondack".....a streamer I created a so named for this beautiful region of New York state.

I also have a feature on my streamers to be published on, Global Fly Fisher, on September 20th....http://globalflyfisher.com/ Thanks to Bob Petti for the presentation. I hope you'll check this feature out.

  8. Nice Job! There is just one problem....There is certainly more than one of your streamers that deserves recognition. BTW...I still think you need to come out with a coffee table book of your streamers.
