It is with a sad heart tonight I am informing you of the passing of Norm Norlander. Norm invented the Norvise Fly Tying System and Automatic Bobbin some 20+ years ago. During the time promoting the product he touched the lives of hundreds, probably thousands of fly tiers. Norm was as kind of a man as I ever knew always willing to talk and help someone with a problem or challenge. Norm passed quietly in his sleep Sunday night May 13th 2018 in his home in Kelso, Washington after a short battle with Cancer. The fly fishing and tying world will never be the same again. We have lost our friend, mentor, and all around great guy. Thank you norm for everything you have given to this industry, we will never forget you!
