Son Tao is a Master Sergeant in the US Army. He got his start with fly fishing and tying through Project Healing Waters. Son was given a book about classic Catskill flies. He immediately became fascinated with the history and beauty with each of the classic fly patterns and soon began tying every fly in the book.
Son’s attention to detail is evident in his passion for tying Catskill dry flies, nymphs and various trout patterns. He was the winner of the 5th Annual Project Healing Waters National Fly Tying Competition and is on the pro staff for Regal Vise, Semperfli, J.Stockard, Moonlit and Hazard Fly Fishing.
