*About Phil Castleman
"I am between 70 and death and am a Lawyer . . .among other
things. I have been tying for too many years to count and
been in the exotic feather business for many years. I have
fished for Atlantic Salmon since 1947 when I was in Colby
College in Waterville, Maine.
I have been raising various birds for Salmon Flies for 30 years
and ship all over the world. And, I have had the pleasure of
fishing most of the great Salmon rivers in Canada, Newfoundland/Labrador
as well as a few in Europe. I have fished for Sailfish, Marlin, Bonefish,
Tarpon, etc in Florida, Mexico, Venezuela. But, Salmon fishing is my
first love with the Bonaventure River on the Gaspe being my favorite.
My two sons are also Salmon Fishermen and we fish Salmon together
at least once a year. I am single as my wife died ten years ago."
