*About Ron Eagle Elk
"As for my Bio, just a name and that I live in Yelm,
WA is fine with me." That was all I could get out of
Ron the first time I asked him for a little info
bout him. I just couldn't put such a humble bit if
info for a guy who has had a distinguished career
serving us here in the States and who is an accomplished
Tyer and Flyfisher.
With a little help from the "management" Ron submitted
the following. "Ron Eagle Elk, originally from Pine
Ridge Reservation in South Dakota, now I reside in
Yelm, Washington. I have been fly fishing for 30 years
and tying for about 20 on and off. I usually fish the
Deschutes, Nisqually, Skookumchuck and Cowlitz rivers,
all in Washington State.
After serving for 23 1/2 years as an Army Paratrooper
and Ranger, I am now living a simpler, quieter life
fishing and tying as much as possible."
