Author Biography

Ray Hyman (BA, MA, Ed.M) fell in love with fishing when he was five, and his uncle gave him his first bamboo pole and reel. Ray began fly fishing and fly tying many years ago and took his own notes and kept journals to improve his fly fishing knowledge and skills. After cleaning up his home office, he found his fly fishing notes in the journal he had made over the years. He thought that sharing that information with other people new to the sport could help them enjoy and experience fly fishing as much as he had over the years.

Using his knowledge and experience as a teacher, college professor, and fly fisher, Ray has organized his fishing notes over the years into this book for beginners. With his love for watercolor painting, Ray also recreated his own sketches to enhance the text for visual learners. Ray, and his wife Laura, had been married 39 years and are the proud parents of four grown children. Ray and Laura love to hike America’s National and State Parks and enjoy moments of solitude in the wilderness together.
