Fly Fisher/Fly Tier/Guide
Capt David Edens has been fly fishing and tying flies for over 45 years. When he began tying, he would “pluck” the family dog and cat for fur for streamers and rob his Mom’s sewing box for thread. His first fly caught fish was a wild rainbow trout, caught on a variant of a Mickey Finn he had tied with fur from the family pets. He caught it from a stream to which he had ridden his bike.
