Allen's Biography

I grew up fishing and honing my skills on the famous Brodhead Creek. My first experience with a fly rod was at the age of 13, and I learned by watching and fishing with Don Baylor, Ernie Schwiebert and many other fine fly fisherman through out the years. Tying began in earnest around the same time for me as I preferred to catch fish on my own flies.

I tye many different types of flies and enjoy the challenge each presents...Some that I tye are Catskill style flies , classic streamers,wet flies,spey flies and classic atlantic salmon flies both hair wings and married wings.

My horizons grew as I got older and have been regularly fishing on numerous streams in CT,NY,PA and NJ. from limestoners such as the Saucon , Little Lehigh , Letort ,Penns Creek , Fishing Creek to notable freestone streams such as the Beaverkill, Willowemoc, Brodhead Creek, Big Bushkill and many others. To the great tail waters of the East and West Branch of the Delaware and the Farmington River. I regularly fish the Great Lakes region for big steelhead, lake run browns and salmon.

I am a member of the Broheads Chapter TU , Catskill Fly Tiers Guild and a member of the fly tying pro team for Flymen Fishing Co. . I enjoy teaching the art of fly tying to others and have done so through classes held at various fly shops and Trout Unlimited meetings. As well as tying at the most of the major East Coast Fly fishing shows.

The GFF money box

… I have a small favor to ask.

Long story short

Support the Global FlyFisher through several different channels, including PayPal.

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
