Jack Gartside 1942 - 2009

We were saddened to learn that after a long tough fight, Jack Gartside lost his battle with lung cancer.

Jack Gartside was counted one the most innovative and prolifically inventive fly tyers of the modern era. He got his first fly tying lesson in 1956 . Ever since he's been tying and fishing, accumulating an extraordinary range of fishing experience in fresh and salt water. He was one of the first fly tyers profiled in Sports Illustrated magazine (Oct. 12, 1982). Jack's best-known original patterns include the Gurgler, Sparrow, Soft Hackle Streamer, and the Gartside Pheasant Hopper. His designs have been featured in Eric Leiser's Book of Fly Patterns, Judith Dunham's The Art of the Trout Fly, Lefty Kreh's Salt Water Fly Patterns, Dick Stewart's Salt Water Flies, and Dick Brown's Flyfishing for Bonefish.
