Marc Williamson,
educator and
on Fly Fishing Oregon's Fall River

Marc Williamson is an Oregon resident who has been an educator—first in the public schools and then at Warner Pacific College in Portland—for most of his life. In 1983 Marc began teaching fly tying and fly fishing for Stewart’s Custom Tackle in Oregon. Since then he has served on the Pro Staff of Daiichi Hooks, Nor Vice, and Whiting Farms (growers of genetic fly tying hackle).
Marc gave presentations about "Fly Fishing Central Oregon’s Lakes and Rivers" and "The Art and Scienc of Still Waters" and he taught how to tie trout emerger patterns at the Fly Fishing Fair in Ellensburg earlier this month. He also gives private instruction in fly tying and fly fishing.
Ten years ago Marc co-founded and became the director of Northwest Christian Fly Fishing Inc. which has put on an annual Christian Fly Fishing Roundup at Camp Morrow on Pine Hollow Reservoir just west of the Deschutes River canyon.
If you are planning on attending the August NFA Central Oregon Outing, then the information in Marc’s presentation will come in really handy. What Marc has to say may even convince some of you to sign up for the outing.


The Northwest Fly Anglers (NFA) is a family oriented fly fishing club that is devoted to the sport of fly fishing through monthly programs, educational activities, conservation activities, and fishing outings.

The NFA was founded in 1972 and is based on the premise that fly fishing not only encourages the conservation of natural resources but also provides a means for individuals to come together to learn about and enjoy beautiful settings and fishing experiences in the Northwest.

Anyone who is interested in fly fishing is encouraged to come to our monthly meetings to, meet members, and learn about the NFA. Club membership is open to all ages and skill levels. We welcome individuals, couples, and families interested in the sport of fly fishing.


The NFA publishes a newsletter
each month.

David P. Williams

David has just written a great book: Fly Fishing for Western Smallmouth.  It is not only comprehensive on the subject covering places, flies, gear, and techniques but is an enjoyable read.

Here is a sample:  "Coldwater fishers have been led by coldwater writers to believe that coldwater fish swim at the apex of the freshwater fish world. Trout (and by association, those who pursue them) have been characterized as more refined, more intelligent, and clearly more sophisticated than any other freshwater species.  If trout writers are to be believed, all trout live in the purest of waters, sip the tiniest of insects off the surface (the trout version of taking afternoon tea complete with crustless cucumber sandwiches) and then retire until the evening repast."
