Jerry Coviello learned to tie flies before he learned to fly fish. He found that learning what he was tying made it easy to understand what the fish were eating. He won his first fly tying contest in 1990 at the World Fishing and Outdoor Show in Suffern NY. In 1991, Jerry founded the Bucks County Chapter of Trout Unlimited and was the president for 4 years. He is the editor and creates videos for the Fly Tying Group’s Facebook page and teaches fly tying at a local fly shop in Bucks County PA. Jerry is a Fly Tying Demonstrator and demonstrates his skills at local fishing clubs, the International Fly Tying Symposium in Somerset NJ and the IFFF Fly Fishing Fair in Livingston MT. Jerry is a life member of the International Federation of Fly Fishers and Trout Unlimited, and a member of the IFFF Fly Tying Group. He is serving on the IFFF Fly Tying Group’s Board of Governors and a Fly Tying Award Evaluator.
