Jeff's Biography


I have been tying flies since 1974. At that time I was living in Argentia Newfoundland. Due to the number of Scheduled Atlantic Salmon Rivers in the area all our fishing had to be fly fishing. I was lucky enough to receive a fly tying kit that year and have never looked back. In the ensuing years I have lived and fly-fished in many parts of Canada and the USA. My favourite tying styles include streamers (both feather-wing and buck-tails), Atlantic salmon hair-wings and soft hackle wet flies in Sylvester Nemes style. I also like to tinker with older patterns using newer materials just to see how they work out. I enjoy researching the history of flies and the materials used to create them. Hunting, fishing and exploring conservation issues are also important activities to me.

After a 27 year career in the Canadian Forces, I am now pursuing a career in outdoor communications. Currently I write a monthly fly tying column for the Alberta Outdoorsmen magazine.

… 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.
