Tyer's Table with John Newbury

John Newbury is passionate about creating the perfect trout fly, a passion he has had his whole life. He studied fisheries biology and river ecology in school and worked as a fisheries field biologist, where he gained deep knowledge about what makes a functional trout habitat. John's obsession ultimately led him to Colorado, where he lived on the banks of a Gold Medal trout stream, allowing him to test his numerous ideas. Fishing almost daily, John was able to develop and refine various fly patterns to his satisfaction. As a result of the years he spent at work at the tying bench, many of his patterns are now found via the Fulling Mill catalog and shop bins. 

When John is not obsessing over the perfect trout fly, he can be found in the kitchen whipping up healthy recipes or noodling in his music room or painting studio. John now divides his time between the Pacific Northwest and the Colorado Rockies and is currently in Oregon getting re-acquainting with our maritime climate and high desert trout streams.

We are excited to welcome John back to the Tyer's Table on Saturday, June 8th, from 10:30 to 1:00. Don't miss this one!
