Scotty and Drew Talk Fly Design, Production, Saltwater Fly Fishing, and More!
Drew Chicone is an author, award-winning outdoor writer and fly designer, photographer, lecturer, and materials expert, whose passion for teaching the art of fly tying has inspired numerous how-to articles, books, and detailed instructional guides. He has lived and breathed the sport since he was tall enough to sit at the vise, and his fly creations are well known and in high demand among saltwater anglers and guides across the globe.
Drew has been an FFF Certified Casting Instructor and commercial fly tyer for more than a decade. His patterns are sold in quality fly shops and have appeared in over 70 US and international publications. He is the winner of the 2016 and 2017 International Fly Tackle Dealer Best in Show Saltwater Fly Pattern Award, as well as the 2014 IFTD Iron Fly.
At the beginning of 2018, Drew partnered with Wild River Press books to publish three new titles; “Top Saltwater Flies - Bonefish,” “Top Saltwater Flies - Tarpon,” and “Top Saltwater Flies - Permit.” It’s the most extensive tying-instruction series on the subject ever published.
In addition to his ongoing work as an educator, Drew ties premium saltwater flies for sale through his company: Salty Fly Tying. He is the Director at Maven Rods USA, the co-founder of Strip Strike University, and frequently hosts destination schools and fishing adventures anywhere saltwater species swim.
