Micheal Burgess, of @getrealflytying, currently resides in St. Louis Missouri.
When Micheal was first introduced to fly tying 20 years ago, he had a busy life running his business full-time and raising three kids with his wife, Laura, so he wasn’t able to pursue his passion for tying right away. However, he always found time for fishing trips whenever possible.
His journey into truly pursuing his (somewhat) newfound passion started three years ago, when one of Michael’s friends asked him if he could tie up a fly pattern to match the hatch of an emerging Caddis, which hatches late April to early May every year on a local river. That request really got his creative juices flowing and since his kids are grown now, he spends most evenings on his @renzzeti Master Vise tying bugs.
“I am ecstatic that Renomed asked me to be a part of their pro-team. I have been using Renomed scissors for the last 2 years - which I, personally, think are the best scissors in the industry - therefore, accepting their offer to join their pro-team was a very easy decision to make. I am honored that I have the opportunity to support and promote their product.” — Michael
