Phil Rowley – Strike Indicator Techniques for Stillwaters
At the age of 6 Phil Rowley was introduced to coarse fishing in England and has been hooked ever since. For the past 20 years Phil Rowley has been fly-fishing stillwaters almost exclusively.

A former commercial fly tyer Phil has written for almost every major fly fishing publication in North America. His contributions also include books and numerous feature articles on fly-fishing stillwaters and stillwater fly patterns. Phil’s book Fly Patterns For Stillwaters has become a best seller. Recently Phil in conjunction with True North Entertainment released a DVD, Tying Fly Patterns for Stillwaters.
This DVD features patterns from Phil’s book along with some new creations.

In addition to Phil’s shows and seminars he has had the good fortune to appear on such T.V. shows as Sport Fishing B.C., The New Fly Fisher and Fishing with Shelly and Courtney.
