Co-owner of Mossy Creek Fly Fishing, former American Fly Fishing Trade Association Chairman, Mass TU Board member, and Fly Fisher’s of Virginia Technical Advisor. Colby and his brother Brian opened up the shop together in 2003. He started guiding and instructing in VA in 1999 and has fished almost every day since 2003. When he isn’t fishing, he’s at the vise tying flies. He started tying flies for local VA fly shops at age 13 and was featured at many fly fishing trade shows through his teen years. Although based in the Shenandoah Valley, Colby always has ‘salt’ on his mind. When he isn’t hosting a trip in the Bahamas or Belize chasing bones, permit, tarpon, and cudas, he is out with his buddies chasing stripers, big drum, cobia, or billfish off the VA coast!
Colby will be telling us about the great fishing opportunities available to us in Virginia.

FlyFishers, Because of all the prohibitions associated with the ongoing pandemic it has been decided that the FFV would try something different to alleviate the rampant “Cabin Fever” that we are all experiencing. An Online “Zoom” meeting has been setup for Thursday, January 28, 2021 at 7:30pm. If you have used Zoom before you are all set. If not just go to the Zoom website and get registered. If you experience any difficulty just let us know and one of our resident Zoom experts will walk you through the process. Our presenter for this meeting will be the internationally known flyfisherman Jeff Currier—www.JeffCurrier.comJeff has been fly fishing the world for over forty years. Jeff’s adventures to more than sixty countries on six continents and more than 400 fly caught species and counting; make him one of the foremost authorities in fly fishing. Wherever he goes, Jeff brings a sense of humor, enthusiasm, approachability and plenty of experience. Jeff has been in the fly fishing industry for over thirty years. He began behind the counter at a fly shop in Jackson, Wyoming then went on to manage the shop for twenty years. He has taught the basics of fly fishing and guided anglers all over the Yellowstone area and throughout the world in both fresh and saltwater. He is presently on the Professional Advisory Staff for R.L Winston Rod Co., Bauer Reels, Simms Fishing Products, Scientific Anglers, Fly Fishers International, Costa, Yeti, Kate’s Real Food, and Yellow Dog Flyfishing Adventures. Jeff has met thousands of anglers from novice to advanced. His greatest joy is to help folks catch fish by supplying simple advice. On his site you can view and order Jeff’s books, “Currier’s Quick and Easy Guide to Saltwater Fly Fishing” & “Currier’s Quick and Easy Guide to Warmwater Fly Fishing”. You can also order the DVD’s Evolution, Carpland, Connect, Waypoints, Soulfish 2, Kendjam, and Atlanticus where Jeff appeared fly fishing for the entertaining segments in Canada, Tanzania, India, Mongolia, Egypt, Brazil, Costa Rica, and Gabon.
