I am a 15 year old fly tyer from the Hudson Valley in New York. I began tying flies when I was 10 at my local fly shop. I used to go there with my Dad on Sundays to tie. I earned a spot at a tying table at the International Fly Tying Symposium when I was 13, and have been tying there ever since. I also tie at other local fly tying shows. I assist my Dad with fly fishing classes at my local community college through our Trout Unlimited Chapter by teaching the fly tying course. Most of my patterns are for the Salmon River in Pulaski New York where my family has a camp. On the Salmon River I fish for salmon and steelhead and many other freshwater fish. Nearer home, I enjoy tying caddis patterns and fishing for small trout.
