jim teeny
Show Notes: https://wetflyswing.com/jimteeny/ Some of the first sinking fly lines were developed by my guest, Jim Teeny back in the 1970's.   In Episode 005 of the Fly Fishing Show I had the pleasure of interviewing Jim Teeny who is one of the most influential people in fly fishing over the last 60 years partly due to Jim's contribution of sinking lines for fly fisherman around the world back in the 1970's. We talk about sinking lines, the Teeny Nymph and a bunch of other tips and great stories about how Jim has caught so many fish species over the years on the fly he originated - the teeny nymph fly.
