About me
Jack
Pangburn frequently fishes the Beaverkill,
Willowemoc, Delaware West
Branch and the Croton Watershed streams.  He is a contributing member of
Trout Unlimited, Catskill Fly Tiers Guild, Federation of Fly Fishers, and the
United Fly Tiers.  Now as a retired art
education instructor of the
secondary and college levels he lives with his
wife in Westbury, New
York.  Their four children have given them seven
grandchildren.


 



Jack's fishing
buddy once overheard someone call him "Grizljak" because of his strong
use of grizzly hackle.  His fishing buddy started calling him by that
nickname and it has stuck ever since.



 



Jack is a fly
tying instructor who has custom tied flies for years.  His flies
are
tops in every department, award winners in national and international
competitions, beautiful to look at, perfectly proportioned and catch
fish.  



 



Farrow Allen,
writer/editor and tier says: "Aside from being a thoughtful fly tier and
dedicated angler, Jack Pangburn is a highly skilled artist."  His
art
has been recently displayed in
Mid West Fly Tier, American Angler,
Orvis News,
United Fly Tiers Roundtable, and the Macallandar
2001.  



 



Jim
Schollmeyer has photographed most of Jack's fly patterns that have



been
printed in these fly related publications:
Fly Tying, Flyfisher, Fly



Fish
America, Fly Fishing & Tying Journal
and the new Federation of



Fly
Fishers Fly Pattern Encyclopedia.  Photographer/writer Thomas Ames,



Jr.
has included fly patterns designed and tied by Jack in his new book
Hatch
Guide for New England Streams.




 




Jack
has written and illustrated an excellent book titled "Deer Hair Fly
Tying Guidebook
"

that is filled with his illustrated drawings.  It has a lot of good
information and includes easy to follow instructions for tying a large variety
of fly patterns.  You owe it to yourself to check it out.



 



 



Jack is willing
to answer any e-mail questions or requests regarding his custom tied
flies, color pencil illustrations, and his book.
