He will be conducting two programs this coming Saturday, March 23rd. At 10:30am “The Trout Fishing of New Mexico and Argentina” (in store), and at 2:30pm “Instinctive Fly Fishing and Casting” Demo (at the casting pond.

He will also be tying his infamous “Poundmeister” fly in the store after his casting demo.

Taylor’s home water is the Rio Grande near Taos, New Mexico, where he works with his son, Nick, in their Taos Fly Shop and runs the guiding side of the business.
