Fred's primary focus is on the art and history of fly tying, which is a niche and romantic culmination of woodsmen, artists and literature that lies at the heart of early American history.
The flies from the 1800’s and early 1900’s tell a story of their originators. The men and women in pursuit of wild trout and salmon; their names are in the annals of history with their flies and their stories.
