From Jerry:

I am a fly tyer from La Pine, Oregon. I retired to Central Oregon in �2004� to follow my passion for the sport of fly fishing and fly tying which took hold of me in the early 80�s. I was blessed with a great mentor and teacher in the late Andre� Puyan�s who with great patience and humor cleaned up my tying by teaching me the classic techniques of the fly tyers craft. Andre� believed that with great technique there is not a fly that you couldn�t tye. It is the way and how I teach today in my own classes.
I demonstrate at the most of the tyer conclaves and The Fly Fishing Shows in the Western US. I teach and do demos at the local Orvis store, as well as coordinate a winter fly tying series for the Central Oregon Fishers for which I am a member. In �2009�, I received the Stan Walters Memorial Fly Tyer of Year award from, the Oregon Council of the Federation of Fly Fishers. I am humbled to be in the same class as the past winners of this great award, and I will continue to teach and pass on the fly tying craft for that is the only way it can live on.
