What can we say about Jerry French…pioneer, innovator, inventor, creative…all adverbs to describe Jerry. You can add up the years of experience like dog years…they are exponential. Through trial and error, collaboration and many years on the water, Jerry French is a purveyor of all things fly fishing. From flies, to rods, and reels, Jerry’s impact on the fly fishing world is dramatic to say the least. Many technical aspects of fly fishing is a direct result of Jerry’s experience, innovation and creativity.
Recently, Jerry was interviewed by Dave Stewart of Wet Fly Swing, talking about the intruder fly, Skagit lines and short spey rods. Talk about getting into the water column…It’s a great listen. Check it out here- Jerry French and the Intruder Revolution.
Jerry has forgotten more about fishing than a lot of us know. He currently shares his ideas, designs, and exhibit flies, rods, reels and tying materials at jerryfrenchflyfishing.com.
