My name is Jeff Gensheimer and I’m from eastern Pennsylvania. I started fly fishing before I could drive a car, I used to walk down to the Bushkill Creek and toss around wooly buggers and scratched the surface of nymphing.
I consider myself a well rounded angler that isn’t shy about throwing streamers or dries but when you grow up in an area riddled with limestone spring creeks you better learn how to throw small nymphs!
I enjoy chasing trout through the winter but really switch gears to migratory shad on the Delaware, but you can certainly find me back on the rivers and creeks for a good dry fly hatch before the waters get to warm before I switch to Smallmouth bass on the rivers. You can also find me in the mountain blue lines chasing little natives with the dry fly sticks
I really enjoy tying my nymphs with Electric wool because it’s easy to build a smooth tapered body with little bulk. The range of colors is huge, my favorite is the old moss.

I started fishing in the mountains of South Carolina in the 70's. A friend got me hooked on flyfishing in the early 90's. Sometime later I became interested in tying and bought a beginners tying kit that would fit into a shoe box. Like everyone I started with the basics, buggers & pheasant tails. Roughly 5 years ago social Media lit a fire to my tying and I quickly discovered what other tiers were doing with new materials and photography. I've come to love and respect this hobby that really is an art form. My materials stock now rivals some fly shops.
