Dave Pearson grew up fishing for native brook trout in the small mountain streams of central Pennsylvania, and for bass and bluegill in the Susquehanna River. He bought his first fly rod with Green Stamps at the age of nine, and tied his first flies with pillow feathers on snelled Eagle Claw hooks, using a jury-rigged vise made out of a pair of vise-grips. He still loves small-stream fishing, from the coldwater streams of Ontario to the limestone creeks of Pennsylvania and the granite pools of New Hampshire. He is an expert at casting in tight spaces! Dave also loves long-distance cycling, and combines cycle-touring with fishing whenever he can. Dave has learned a lot about fly-tying and fishing since that first fly rod. Customers come to trust his sense for what tends to work, on local waters and for their fishing trips to destinations from Western Canada to Central America.
