During the life of the Little Lehigh Fly Shop I had the pleasure of fishing and tying with most of flyfishing greats, but I learned most from people without national reputatiions. You should be aware of these folks and take advantage of opportunities to learn from them.
THOMAS E. BALTZ of Mount Holly Springs, PA is one of these people.
The first time I spoke at Cumberland Valley Trout Unlimited, Tom took me to the Yellow Breeches. His expertise was obvious.
After fishing he treated me to dinner at the Allenberrys resturaunt. The eatery was decorated with BEAUTIFUL fly displays, the flies tied by Tom.
