About the Catskill Fly Tyers Guild

In 1993 Floyd Franke and Matthew Vinciguerra formed the Catskill Fly Tyers Guild. These individuals recognized the need for an organization that would:

- Preserve, protect and enhance the Catskill fly tying heritage.

- Work cooperatively to promote the work of present Catskill fly tyers.

- Provide a forum for the sharing of information.

- Promote the development of future generations of Catskill fly tyers.

Members of the Catskill Fly Tyers Guild firmly believe that the development of fly fishing in the Catskill Mountains of New York is synonymous with the development of fly fishing in the United states. This rich heritage is seen as the foundation of the Guild's present efforts.
