Peninsula Fly Fishers

February General Meeting: Phil Rowley, Flycraft Angling Adventures

  • February 18, 2021
  • 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
  • Zoom videoconferencing


Phil Rowley has been fly fishing for over 35 years. His love of fly fishing has taken him across North and South America pursuing trout, Atlantic and Pacific salmon, char, pike, walleye, and numerous other species on the fly. Phil is probably best known for his stillwater exploits.

Phil will share his knowledge on fly fishing stillwaters with PFF members for our February meeting.

A former commercial fly tyer, Phil has written for almost every major fly fishing publication in North America. He has authored three books and numerous feature articles and has been the fly tying columnist for B.C. Outdoors Magazine for over ten years. Phil's first book, Fly Patterns for Stillwaters, is a best seller. In 2014, Phil was the proud recipient of a Life Time Achievement Award from Fly Tyer magazine, and

in 2017 the Jean-Guy Cote award for his contribution to Canadian fly tying.

In addition to his writing, Phil has five instructional DVD's. In 2018 he, along with good friend Brian Chan, released the Stillwater Fly Fishing App. The app is a unique hand-held resource containing hundreds of 'how-to' videos dedicated to the challenges of fly-fishing lakes. Phil was also a competitive fly fisher. He was a member of the gold medal-winning team at the 2017 Canadian Fly-Fishing championships.
