Hello, all! I'm Jessi, and go by KnittingAngler on this site. I'm a newbie fly fisher/fly tyer, but am married to a wonderful Guy who has been a fly fisher/fly tyer for roughly 20 years! I've had the opportunity to go on fly fishing weekends to Broken Bow, OK twice now thanks to Patriot Anglers, and have already started tying my own flies. Being married to an angler I quickly learned that there's no need to buy when I can make for WAAAAAAAAAYYYYYY cheaper!!! I am a knitter, and am starting to make items that are both functional and eye pleasing (and pretty, if for a woman) for those colder days on the water: Fingerless gloves, hats, and cowls/balaclavas. Everything is knit out of a superwash wool, so they will hold up to the rigors of the water without overly fussy care and maintenance compared to other hand knits. Plus, being handmade allows for customization according to color, size, design, etc. Feel free to contact me about any gear questions!
