John Demuth
Kingsport, TN

John began fishing near the South Holston and Watauga Rivers in East Tennessee at a very young age.  He and his wife Katie got their start fly fishing and tying flies together.  John quickly became drawn to the world of both fresh and saltwater fly tying and is always looking to learn something new from other fly tying legends and friends.  John looks forward to participating in fly fishing and fly tying shows and demonstrations across the country each year.  He enjoys passing on the knowledge that was so freely given to him from other fly tyers.  Teaching others and seeing the look on their face when they land their first fish on a fly they tied is what he is passionate about.  John also looks forward to sharing his fly tying and fly fishing experiences and skills with others on Instagram with his wife Katie through their live show, “Whip Finish Wednesday.”

John is a veteran of the United States Marine Corps.  John and Katie have four children who keep them busy when they are taking a break from fly fishing, tying flies, and traveling.  You can see their work on their Instagram page –
