When Paul was a teenager his Grandfather passed away, Paul felt like he’d lost his best friend and “fishing guide”. It would be years before Paul would fish again.

Decades later, he found his enthusiasm returning and he began a passion with fly fishing. Paul figured out he could tie his own flies and much like the lures his Grandfather use to make and subsequently fish with, Paul got great satisfaction from tying his own flies. He ties commercially, is on the Regal Vise Pro Staff and has a website devoted to fly tying called FrankenFly.

Paul ties a variety of flies, including streamers, but his passion is directed toward Classic Michigan dry flies!
