Patagonia. The fish, the food, the scenery and the warmth and humor of the people are like nothing you’ve ever experienced. This video-based presentation, shot in stunning 4K resolution, will make you feel like you’re there! Tim will share great stories from his travels which will perhaps explain his zeal for returning annually. Tim’s presentation will also include footage and photos from when Tim’s wife Joan joins him in Patagonia to host “non-anglers” like herself – there’s a lot more to do than just fishing! We hope you’ll join us! 

Tim Flagler is the owner of Tightline Productions, L.L.C., a video production company located in Califon, NJ. Although he produces video programs over a wide range of topics, his specialty is fly fishing. Tim is a well-known fly tying instructor. His YouTube videos are some of the best in the business and his YouTube channel, practicalpatterns.com currently has over 113,000 subscribers and 36 million views. Almost every week he produces a new fly tying or “how to” video which appear not only on his YouTube channel but on Midcurrent and the Orvis News fly fishing blog as well. They’re also featured on Trout Unlimited’s national website and in the Orvis Learning Center. In addition, he has a regular column “Beginner’s Masterclass with Tim Flagler” in Fly Tyer magazine, which selected Tim as their “Fly Tyer of the Year”  in their Winter 2022 issue. Many of Tim’s tying videos take the viewer well beyond just the tying of the fly and show what it looks like underwater, what natural it represents and how it can be fished.

Tim’s a fixture at the Fly Fishing Shows – giving presentations, teaching classes and often as a Featured Tier. He enjoys guiding year round for South Branch Outfitters (formerly Shannon’s Fly & Tackle) in Califon, NJ. and hosts annual trips to Patagonia in the spring and to the Kootenai River in MT in the summer. He’ll also be hosting several trips within the year to Spruce Creek, PA starting in 2024.
