Our founder, Dennis Craig Black, has been immersed in the world of fly fishing and tying since early childhood. Growing up on the banks of the North Umpqua River gave Craig the freedom to develop his fly casting skills and inspired his lifelong passion for fly fishing. At a very young age he learned the art of tying flies from his father, Dennis J. Black, founder of Umpqua Feather Merchants.
