*About Mark J Romero
Born Feb. 16th 1950 in Albany, Cal. Lived in California
until I was 31 when I moved to New York City. Worked
my entire adult life until I was 51 in the music
industry as a recording/sound engineer and road/stage
manager in the Jazz world. Spent many years on the road
with the best Jazz bands in the world, traveling all
over the world. After working in the number one Jazz
club in San Francisco from 1976 to 1981 I went to New
York City and the rest is history. I met my wife in
1982 and we started fly fishing in 1989, (on her birthday),
after a few years spin fishing for bass and bluegill. We
both tie now, but she sticks to trout flies. I started
tying in 1993, wow, it's been a decade. My wife and I
are both members of the Catskill Fly Tyers Guild and as
the "keeper" I have the clubs collection in my gallery,
JazzMark Gallery. I have been tying at shows for about
5 years now, and I find that very rewarding and fun. For
me tying flies is a beautiful and fun form of therapy and
relaxation. I don't even care if the flies "work." It's
simply a way of getting away from all other things and
letting the hours flow by. You can find out much more
