Stan Taylor was born and raised in Rockland County, New York but will tell you he grew up in Sullivan County where his family spent their summers and he spent his time fishing for bass, trout, panfish and anything else that would chase his bait. When he was a teenager, he received a fly tying kit as a Christmas present one year and taught himself how to tie flies. Over the years, he spent time off and on tying flies and honing his craft when his time wasn’t being spent fishing, hunting and the whole day job thing. Over the last couple of years, Stan has started tying custom jobs for his two home shops- The Anglers Den in Pawling, NY and Bedford Sportsman in Cross River, NY and takes custom orders from his Facebook page. Currently, he is working on obtaining his guide license. He ties a variety of flies but specializes in flies for bass, trout and panfish.
