Trout & Feather – Tim Cammisa
There are so many people online putting out fly tying tutorials today, and that makes the information more available than it ever has been. However, this abundance makes it easy for the sources to blend together. Even in this ‘market,’ Tim Cammisa has a personality, and an air of sincerity that differentiates him from the rest. Tim runs his YouTube Channel and website, Trout and Feather, which both host excellent videos and tutorials perfect for you, whether you’re a beginner, or whether you’ve been fly fishing for 55 years. Tutorials range from guide flies, and 2-minute ties, to “Material Intruduction” videos like the one I’ve embedded below. I’ve talked before about how we need to be more inclusive in this sport, and Tim’s pulling his weight and then some. Here, Tim breaks down the essentials from the non-essentials (but fun to have), with a real emphasize on value.
Tim also speaks and does Fly Tying demonstrations for any groups that are happy to have him. I recently saw Cammisa speak at my local TU chapter, and really enjoyed his talk. As I’m writing this, Tim is working his craft at the International Fly Tying Symposium in Somerset, NJ. Personally, I love Tim’s work, congratulate him on his success, and wish him the best of luck going forward.
