FRANK SMETHURST BIO I was raised in a non fishing family in Atlanta Ga, but somehow began to fish around the age of two thanks to babysitters noticing that I would suddenly behave when on a dock with a fishing line. Not much has changed. I started tying my own flies at age eight, and at the age of twelve, began work at the influential Atlanta tackle shop, the Fish Hawk in Atlanta Georgia. I scrubbed toilets and dusted off reels, but I also tied flies for the more important fresh and saltwater customers of the Fish Hawk. When I was thirteen, a customer caught a 160+lb Tarpon on one of my Cockroaches. I moved to Telluride Colorado in 1988 to pursue my love of fishing through guiding, and have been guiding ever since. I also began a consulting and repping career in this last decade and my dedication to the tyers art and the need to represent the finest companies has brought me to MFC. Along the way, I have hosted TV shows, made films, and won tournaments with primarily my own flies. I have a wife and daughter, Carol and Mallory, and they let daddy fish frequently, and are both learning to row.
