We are beyond excited to have Phil Rowley host our first Annual Stillwater Fly Fishing Seminar, starting on April 20th for our Regular Thursday Night Fly Tying and he will be hosting our Stillwater Seminar on Saturday the 22nd and Sunday the 23rd. Phil has a wealth of knowledge when it comes to fly fishing in general but his focus is definitely on Stillwater Tactics and Fly Tying alike. Phil was a commercial tier for many years and his patterns are distributed by a ton of different vendors across North America, even in our own Stillwater flies at the shop. Phil is an author and a co-writer for a bunch of Stillwater publications that have stood the test of the industry and are a great resource for anyone wanting to learn more about Stillwater fishing.
