Linda Hotchkiss - USA

I am lucky enough to live the north-eastern United States surrounded by historic fly fishing rivers like the Beaverkill, Willowemoc, Housatonic and Farmington. My first fish on a fly was a 17-inch brown trout – unfortunately, not all of the others have been as big. When I began tying flies in earnest, I started with the basic trout flies and have moved on to streamers, saltwater and salmon files. 
I have always been fascinated by the look of woven body flies. I enjoy exploring the possibilities of the woven tying technique, teaching it to new fly tyers, and meeting fellow ‘weavers’ around the world.

Always on the go, fly fishing and tying have provided me with opportunities to fish in Iceland, Norway, Scotland, and Australia. When I am not fishing, I participate in many fly fishing shows and demonstrations throughout the year including: International Fly Tying Symposium (USA), Fly Fishing Show (USA), Northwest Fly Tyer and Fly Fishing Expo (USA), British Fly Fishing International (UK), Fly Fest (UK), Irish International Fly Fair (NI), Irish Fly Fair (Ireland), SIM (Italy), Dutch Fly Fair, Sportfiskemässen (Sweden), and more.
