Peter's Biography

Peter has been fly tying for about 13 years, initially just creating flies needed for fishing. He enjoys tying Rangeley style streamers. He became interested in tying these flies in about 2006. Peter has tied at the International Fly Tying Symposium and a few of his flies appear in John Mordock's "Fly Fishing Two-Story Lakes and Reservoirs." Peter has studied streamer tying under Jack Pangburn and Mike Martinek, and credits FlyTyingForum, ClassicFlyTyingForum and the StreamerList with providing him a rich interactive learning environment for tying streamers and classic Atlantic Salmon flies. His favorite streamer book is Graydon Hilyard's "Carrie Stevens" which set the standard for research protocol and provenance of streamer patterns. When he's not tying, Peter is a signal processing systems engineer, and enjoys fly fishing, kayaking, and hiking. He enjoys fishing these Rangeley streamers to bring up big land-locked salmon from deep pools in the upper Connecticut River. Peter has two grown sons, and lives with his wife Lynne in New Hampshire, where they have been pouring money into a small farmhouse for 30 years.

That is a beautiful fly. The colours are awsome.Great job. I look forward to seeing what else you have tied.

Comment to Peter Simonson...

What a wonderful color combination. I agree Carrie Stevens Book by Graydon Hillard's is one I go to when tying streamers.

Thanks Ricardo!

It's one of my favourite patterns, and Peter tied this wonderfully. Thanks for the support of the project!

… 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.
