Wet Flies 101 at Yale University

Much to Thurston Howell III’s dismay, I presented “Wet Flies 101” to the Yale Fly Fishing Club this past Monday. A little lecture, a little tying, a little Q&A, and a lot of fun. Many thanks to the students who attended, and to advisor Sean Callinan for the photos and invite!

The answer is: yes.

My parting advice to the group: “If you have a choice between fishing and working, always choose fishing.”



“Sounds like a marvelous time, even if it was with a bunch of Yale men…”
