Real NameJohn Evans
LocationDummerston, Vermont
Biography & ThoughtsStarted fly fishing in the late 1940's as a boy, and tying flies by the time I was about 12. Tough going. Lousy equipment, that was affordable. Maybe 3 books on fly tying around, and none too good. Joan Salvato, later Joan Wulff, was a champion caster who lived in a nearby town. However, I was too young to drive to the Patterson casting club.
After many decades of fishing fever, which became almost an obsession, I went cold turkey in 1982. Returned to the sport and tying three years ago, and am amazed at how much had changed. Rivers that I had pretty much to myself are often crowded. Living in Vermont, I can find some solitude in a hours drive, but am seldom impressed with sluggish, hatchery fish.
