Introducing Steve Yewchuck, J. Stockard Pro Tyer

We would like to officially welcome Steve Yewchuck to our team of Pro Tyers!

Steve, who lives in Beacon NY, has been fly fishing for 30+ years and fly tying since he was 13. He started fishing for brookies at a very young age, which lead into chasing other species throughout his life. Designing and tying his own flies to catch these fish has been a real love.

After going to college for art and photography, Steve didn’t find work in his chosen field so he began guiding and selling flies and he’s been successfully involved in the fly fishing industry ever since. He helps promote and is an ambassador for Hatch Reels, Korkers Footwear, Livingston Rods, Rising Fish, Flymen Fishing Company and is a fly designer for Montana Fly Company. more…
