Steve Silverio, ambassador and product developper at Regal Engineering, will be at the EWF again. You can find him at his tying bench on the first level of the Tenne.
“When I was young, my dad had a subscription to Field & Stream magazine. I remember an article on fly fishing eastern streams by Ted Trueblood, where he detailed sure-fire trout catching secrets of guys like Fox & Marinaro. Borrowing my dad’s rod, reel and battered fly wallet, I headed to my local stream. After an hour or so of flailing away, I had either snapped off or tree’d all the contents of that old wallet and arriving home, announced to my father that I need more flies. Learning how the others had disappeared, my father said, “Boy, if you want to be a fly fisherman, you had better learn to tie flies”.”
