Judson has been tying and fly fishing since he was 8 years old. The first fish that he caught on his own fly was a sucker on a Renegade. 37 years later, the excitement and joy are still present. In 2012, he stumbled upon Sylvester Nemes’ The Soft Hackle Fly, and fell in love with the elegance and simplicity of soft hackles and has been tying them ever since. They have been included in demos since 2014.
