name is Jim Crislip living in the great northwest Saint Helens Oregon. I have been fly fishing for over 50 years and tying over 40. Since I retired as a high school teacher and coach I spend my time tying and fishing. I also a member of several groups connected with the International Federation of Fly Fishers. I am on the Board of Governors of the Tying Group, The Oregon Council Board of Directors, The Museum Committee, and the Northwest Fly Tyers and Fly Fishers Expo Committee in Albany Oregon. I travel to several fly fishing shows a year demonstrating tying and also teaching workshop on the art of tying. I belong to five different clubs from Visalia California to Longview Washington, and the United kingdom.
