The Outcasts

Fly fishing is a great sport and for some of us, it has become an all consuming passion. We come from all backgrounds. A castaway group of counter culture eclectic fly fishermen who still
believe in the importance of  camaraderie and fishery management without the need of personal capital gains.

Captain Ray Stachelek

Bob "The Bus Driver" Greco

There is no one I would rather spend the day fly fishing with than Bob Greco. Bob has been fly fishing for over 25 years.....he worked at Fin and Feather in North Kingstown for years. He is a consummate fly tier and dry fly fisherman. He was the founder of United Fly Tiers/Rhode Island. After a short venture to Arizona, he returned to Rhode Island and now enjoys fishing the local waters as well as camping trips to the Farmington River. I like to call him the "Bus Driver".....because when you fish with him, he'll always take you to school.

Steve Cook

Steve is an accomplished angler, as well as fly casting and tying instructor. When not manning the sales floor at The Saltwater Edge, he runs some very popular offseason fly tying classes, fixes reels, and gives casting lessons. Steve's a true jack-of-all-trades and he once even dated Dolly Parton.
