Peggy Brenner resides in Milford, NH, one hour from some of the best saltwater and freshwater fly fishing in New England. She has been tying for two decades now; my specialty is flies that fish well in New England and on down to the Florida Keys. I started with the basic trout and saltwater flies, progressed to Classic Maine Streamers and now Classic Salmon flies with a one year apprenticeship through the NH Council for the Arts; Traditional Arts Program. Newly retired, she is taking on an apprentice through the same program for a year to pass on the skills. She ties for a select group of customers, as well as giving instruction with a focus on Ladies and children’s classes, presentations, and demonstrations around the country for shops and clubs.
Peggy is a feature fly tyer at the American Museum of Fly Fishing, Manchester Vermont as part of the; “A Graceful Rise” exhibit featuring women of the past, present, and future influential to the world of fly fishing. She teaches a class in streamer tying at the museum each year.
Peggy is current President of International Women’s Fly Fishers, Advisor to United Fly Tyers, and Board member Fly Tying Group of the IFFF. Peggy is also a member of several pro-staff teams including Whiting Farms, Regal and several others. Mostly I enjoy fly fishing and sharing the sport with others.
