#19 Fly Tying is Great Therapy. Adirondack Fly Company and Master Fly Tyer Dom Greico
Today we bring to the mic an old friend of mine Dominick Greico of @adirondackflycompany.  Find them on Instagram here.   Dom is a terrific fly tier and his story is compelling.  When he was much younger he had a brain tumor and part of his recovery left him with some tremors in his hand.  Fly Tying was just the answer to learn his dexterity.  Little did he know that years later after the kids grew up a bit and he had some free time again, he would re-visit fly tying and become what I believe is a world renowned fly tyer.   His flies are amazing and his story is even more wonderful.  Listen to this podcast and check out his flies and his social media presence on Instagram and Facebook.  Dom is an old friend of mine and it was great to connect with him.  Thanks bud for taking the time to be on the show.   Music by Jason Maloney.  Find out more about JP Ross here.
