Nancy Taylor

Nancy Taylor

Nancy Taylor is new to the world of feathers, but not to the fishing world in general. She is a Registered Maine Guide and married to a Registered Master Maine Guide. Nancy's husband, Don, is retired from the Maine Dept. of Inland Fisheries & Wildlife and was it's Chief Enigineer., Nancy is a retired highway construction sub-contractor. The married combo of knowledge of 'where are the fish' and how to get to them makes for remarkable fishing excursions.

Nancy began fly tying three years ago and is now recognized by historical fishing communities. She has been guest fly tyer at The Catskills Fly Fishing Center & Museum, Livingston Manor, NY and The Art of the Angler, Ethan Allan Hotel in Danbury CT.. Nancy has also taught at Maine Sportsmen's Shows with Trout Unlimited chapters. She enjoys teaching all ages of 'children', mostly those under 10 years old. This past Summer Nancy was the tying instructor at Maine's "Becoming an Outdoor Women" program, sponsored by MDIF&W. Nancy has for three years tied flies for fundraising purposes for Casting for Recovery . Feathers and tinsel have connected Nancy to strong women surviving from breast cancer.

Nancy has a lifetime of being a Maine resident and wouldn't have it any other way. The only way her life could be more perfect is to be at the tying table with Carrie Stevens of the Rangeley area.
