This weeks Angler of Distinction, Mary Kuss


Prior to retirement, Mary S. Kuss was Chief Instructor of Orvis-endorsed fly fishing schools and Director of Instructional Programs for The Sporting Gentleman Orvis Store. Over the past thirty four years she has taught numerous group classes and private lessons in fly fishing and fly tying. She has also volunteered many hours teaching for and serving on the boards of several non-profit conservation organizations. Mary is a life-member of Trout Unlimited and has served as a board member for the Ken Lockwood, Valley Forge, and Delco-Manning Chapters of T. U. She is the founder and an active member of the Delaware Valley Women’s Fly Fishing Association, one of the largest clubs of its kind on the East Coast.

Mary did a memorable wet fly tying program with an emphasis on Leisenring patterns in 2005 at my shop.. I still contemplate that presentation.

Any time you can expose yourself to Mary’s quiet competence I suggest you do so.

If you’re a woman interested in our sport you are in luck. South Jersey Coastal Fly Anglers are conducting an event for women fly anglers. Mary will be doing a presentation on May 18.
