Dennis Potter is still doing what he discovered he loved in 1977. He ties flies for fly fishing. He says he still remembers tying his first one.
“To take that fly that I tied – I can show you within six inches on a log where I caught my first trout on the Au Sable River almost 40 years ago,” Potter said.
Dennis Potter was hooked.
He took a fly-tying class, but he says his real education came from being fortunate enough to know a lot of good fly tyers.
He studied their patterns and techniques. He also studied the insects fish prey upon.
