Greg DeMars is a retired mechanical engineer who began his fly fishing adventures in the Colorado Rockies in the early 1990s and expanded his range from there, fishing all over the world. From the Devils River in his native Texas to New Zealand’s South Island and the foothills of the Indian Himalayas, Greg has pursued his passion for fly fishing with the analytical mind of an engineer and the creativity of a blues guitarist and songwriter, gaining valuable insight about fish behavior and fly fishing tactics along the way. An award-winning amateur photographer, Greg ties his own flies and enjoys woodworking, cooking dinner for friends, and the occasional wee dram of fine Islay whisky. Greg married his college sweetheart, and they live in the Dallas area.
