- About me
My name is Don Kelly. I'm
15 years old (2003) and have been fishing since I was 3. I live in Downingtown, PA.
My home waters include the Brandywine Creek, Marsh Creek and Marsh Creek Lake.
I also do a lot of fishing up north in Fishing Creek, Penn's Creek, with an
addition of Elk, Spring, and Spruce Creeks on occasion. Right now, I'm still in
school but I have a job at a local bait store and also sell some custom rods
here and there.

rod builder, fly tier, and most importantly a fisherman. My favorite flies
include midges and nymphs. I find so much pleasure in tying these guys. Also,
the midges in the 26-32 range are really fun to fish. My best fish on a
size 32 was
a 23 inch brown up in fishing creek.
Note by Ed Gallop: I have seen Don's work up close
and he shows an exceptional talent and patience in the art of fly tying.
He is a natural if there ever was one.
