Charlie-

Steve tied wonderful flies and I too see it as a loss that he has quit tying. He told me it was a combination of the bamboo rod making, having grandchildren, the high level management position he now holds with the tribe because of the time it demands, and all the fly fishing clubs and others around the country constantly requesting him to tie and donate flies for fundraisers that caused both he and his wife Karen to quit tying. He also rarely fishes for steelhead anymore because his time is so tied up.
