*About Stu Farnham
Before moving to Oregon in 1992, Stu Farnham lived in
New England. Growing up in Connecticut, he fished Long Island
Sound for Bluefish, Striped Bass, Flounder and, Tautog. As
an adult, he fished for Smallmouth Bass and Pickerel in the
lakes in Maine. He started fly fishing when he moved to
Oregon, took up fly tying two years later and has never looked
back. Whenever his job in software engineering management allows,
he can be found chasing Trout and Steelhead on the rivers and
streams of the Pacific Northwest.
