Stu Tripney

In 2007, Stu Trimpney became New Zealand's first FFF master casting instructor. He and his wife, Mel, own New Zealand's only fly shop. Stu has fly fished throughout the world, from fresh to warm to salt waters. He produced a ground-breaking DVD, A Foam Odyssey. His Bionic foam patterns are a refeshing addition to the Rainy's catalog.
