My name is Roger Plourde and i live in Plainville, CT. I have been tying salmon flies since 1998. I like to tie the classics because of their beauty. I was born in CT. into a French-Canadian family and my wife of 35 years, Pierrette is from Quebec. Because of this history I spend quite a bit of time fishing in News Brunswick, Canada and Maine.

I also enjoy my home waters fishing the Farmington River. When I am not fishing my friends can usually find me in my woodworking shop making cabinets or custom framing or making gadgets that are related to fishing or hunting. I also collect antique flyfishing tackle and dabble in selling salmon tying materials.
