Nate is a freak of nature. For over 60 years, the only thing tied to his tippet was a dry fly. No matter the venue, (lakes, tail waters, spring creeks, or freestones) a dry fly has always been his offering. That history has produced a phenomenal flight path to the most exciting fly fishing of your lifetime. Because he can teach you how. He has authored two cutting-edge books (Addicted to the Rise and Winer on a Dry Fly) that are rich in essential knowledge. His live and Zoom presentations are master classes with specific blueprints for successful dry fly fishing. Furthermore, Nate has a long history in fly tying that has created some of the most successful dry fly patterns in existence. It’s DFI and Nate Brumley’s ultimate goal to help you become a better “DRY FLY GUY.”
Geoff is an Idaho native who has lived his whole life in Idaho (minus 3 years for college). He lives in Boise with his wife Liz and two sons—the next generation of dry fly guys. Geoff spent his life hunting and fishing, but the only sport that truly captured his attention was dry fly fishing. Raised by the “Dry Fly Guru,” he only tied on what he was given, and that was always a dry fly. Thirty-five years later, he’s never sunk a nymph or hucked a streamer; he didn’t set out in life this way, it was “the way of life.” The art of tying flies and fooling big fish with those flies has set his life on a trajectory that will last a lifetime. He hopes to pass down his passion and addiction for dry fly fishing to the two little dry fly guys coming up the ranks. His hands are full because both boys have an addiction for fly fishing that is equal or greater than their dad’s!

Peach’s position? Anything! She is a retired high school teacher (Business Law, Personal Finance, Accounting, Web Design, Computers, and more!), and the matriarch of DFI. She is the one to get these guys into shape; that’s probably not noticeable in the photo as her large biceps are hidden by her huge fish. When Dr. Peach speaks, they all jump (or run for the door to go fishing!)
