Join Steve Silverio at the Irish Fly Fair
Steve Silverio has been tying flies since the age of fourteen on a “homemade rotary vise” and has ventured into pretty much all forms of the fly-tying art. In recent times his primary focus has been on innovative saltwater & large predator flies, however his first love has always been dressing salmon hair wings. Steve has developed a number of patterns for many species from striped bass to Red Fish and Salmon, to Sailfish. He is constantly experimenting with new materials and designs in search of that elusive perfect pattern!
Combining classic dressing with modern materials and techniques - deceptively simple, his flies always look good and are deadly in the water. His favourite river is the Bonaventure and his favorite fly- the "Lulu", a Gaspesie style bomber, taught to him by the Porier brothers, Mario and Jean-Marc.
Currently, Steve is a member of the Regal Vise development team and has cooperated in the design of the new top-of-the-line Revolution rotary model and the new Regal Toolbar. He is also North American Sales and Pro-program Coordinator for AHREX, the hooks crafted from Viking steel.
Steve's work has been published in all forms of print and electronic media. Please join Steve at the Regal Vise Information Booth where various Regal Pro Staff tyers will be demonstrating their skills. Call by and chat to Steve whilst he shows off the various capabilities of the Regal Vise range.
