About John Wood
Growing up in rural North Texas John learned to appreciate fishing at an early age. From the first time he snuck off to the lake without permission until today, fishing has been the one thing that holds his attention completely. His dad first referred to him as Fishhead in 1969 because that was all John ever thought about. Fly fishing came a few years later in life and all but replaced other fishing. A passion for fly fishing and traveling the USA has allowed John to fly fish in 16 states from Florida to Washington taking numerous species from bluegill to walleye on the fly.You can visit J Wood Fly Fishing where, in addition to his flies you can find handmade landing nets and hand tied fly leaders. You can also find a selection of his traditional and original salmon ties at salmonfly.net, a salmon and steelhead fly tying guide and showcase.
