We’re proud to showcase Phil Rowley as this month’s MFC Featured Fly Designer. While he’s known as a stillwater guru, Phil isn’t a guy who sits still and lets the world pass him by. In his 30+ years in the fly fishing industry, Phil has not only put in a lot of lake hours, he also travels all over North America hitting rivers for steelhead, trout, Atlantic and Pacific salmon, char, pike and whatever else he can fool. He’s written for almost every major fly fishing publication in North America and has authored three books, numerous feature articles and two regular columns. You probably have Phil’s first book, Fly Patterns for Stillwaters, since it’s a best seller. In addition to his writing, Phil has four instructional DVDs. In 2007, Phil was a member of the gold medal winning team at the Canadian Fly Fishing championships. He’s also been on a ton of television shows, and he continues to speak to fly fishing clubs and he presents seminars all across North America.
If you want to hang out with him in person, cruise up to Edmonton, Alberta and book him as a guide. And be sure to check out his website here.
But wait…THERE’S MORE! Phil and his bestie, fellow stillwater magician Brian Chan have opened an online store. This, folks, is where all your dreams come true.
