About Capt. Matt Miles
Matt grew up in Lynchburg, Virginia and started fly fishing in 1993. In 1996, after graduating from high school, he moved to Colorado to live out his dream of becoming a fly fishing guide. While in Colorado he met Pat Dorsey, an expert fly fishing guide for the Blue Quill Angler, author, and photographer. Matt started guiding with Pat at the Blue Quill Angler in Evergreen, Colorado in 1997 where he guided over 700 trips. In 2003 Matt decided to move back to Lynchburg to guide his home waters. Matt’s passion is guiding, teaching, and being on the water. He also ties his own flies and is a fly designer for Umpqua Feather Merchants.

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.

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.
