*About John Graves

John started tying in 1993 and fly fishing two years before. "I fly fished the Rogue River until 1997 and then moved to Vancouver, Washington to work and explore new water and to improve my tying. The last four years (1999 to 2002) I have been tying at the NW Fly Tyers Expo in Eugene, Oregon and this experience has been very rewarding to me personally. I have started tying Spey flies so, hopefully, you will see some of them here in the not too distant future."
