I found out that his name is Nicholas Riggs and he is 28 years old and had been tying since he was 13 years old. He said he had been tying at the Albany show for the past 2 years. I don't know how but I had just missed seeing him there. He mainly ties northwest flies but said his favorite is Atlantic Salmon Flies. Nicholas has a degree in "media arts and animation". His e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org. You can find him on Instagram as "papercreekart", and his new website www.paper-creek.com. Nick is a multi-talented young man who also shot the cover photo that will be appearing on the fall issue of Frank Amato's Fly Fishing & Tying Journal. We will no doubt see more of Nick in the future.
