Drew Chicone's Ambassador Profile

Drew Chicone
Fly Fishing Ambassador


Watkins Glen, New York


Fort Myers, Florida
Whether it’s camaraderie, creativity, art or simply a device to catch more fish, people are stoked about tying flies for many different reasons. For Drew, it’s all of these reasons and more. Tying flies is an important part of his daily routine and teaching others the art of fly tying is one of his favorite activities. Drew is an author, fly designer, photographer, lecturer and materials expert whose passion for teaching the art of fly tying has inspired numerous how-to articles, books and detailed instructional guides. He has lived and breathed the sport since he was tall enough to sit at the vise, and his fly creations are well-known and in high demand among saltwater anglers and guides across the globe. In addition to his ongoing work as an educator, Drew frequently hosts destination schools and fishing adventures anywhere saltwater species swim.
