Born and raised in SWVA, Adam lives in Winston-Salem, NC with his wife Erin and their children Jonah and Olivia. After his father-in-law gave him a fly tying kit, Adam began tying, which quickly became a passion. In February of 2015, he launched Blue Ridge Custom Flies. Adam really enjoys tying trout flies, particularly nymphs, and looks for ways to implement realism into his work. Adam was recently added to the Dr. Slick pro team and has also collaborated with fly fishing Guru Ken Tanaka of Wish4Fish to create the W4F Hip Hopper. He joined the DDO team in 2016 as a signature tyer. He falls in the creeks a lot, so we have fun teasing him on his coordination skills every chance we get. Look for some of his best sellers on our site, and feel free to email us at DDO for custom requests.
