Tyler Deal - Granite Falls, NC
My name is Tyler Deal, I have been fishing all my life but did not get into fly fishing until I was 15 years old. I got into competition fly fishing about a year ago, when I was introduced to euro nymphing and haven’t looked back. I enjoy the competition side of fly fishing due to the information you can receive from other anglers in competitions. I currently attend Western Carolina University where I am a member of the fly fishing club. I was introduced to Team Stonefly by team member Brandon Harrison. After fishing and talking with Brandon I was asked to join the team.
