Edward Berkeley

I started tying trout flies after I attended a fishing show in Portland, Oregon, in the 1980s. Gradually I gravitated to the Steelhead and finally to the Atlantic Salmon flies, the latter becoming my passion.
I am indebted to all the experts who instructed me, advised me, supervised me, and helped me improve my skills as well as inspiring me about this esoteric art. Thanks also to all the authors who produced such marvelous books and videos on this subject.

I am seeking perfection which I never achieve, but the journey is the most rewarding part of the effort.

    Dear Mr. Berkeley,
    My wife is a professional oil painting artist. I am trying to convince her to paint authentic, original flies for her portfolio. I would like your permission to allow her to replicate your work in art. Any pieces that are sold would generate a commission to you, and would give credit to your work. If interested, please give me a call at 732-278-4005.
    Best regards,
    Jack Merwede
