Official Biography of Dave Skok

Dave Skok is a Boston-based fly tier, photographer and writer with twenty years of fresh and saltwater fly fishing experience. He is a two-time winner of the Martha's Vineyard Striped Bass & Bluefish Derby and was lucky enough to be the only fly fisherman in the sixty year history of the Derby to win the Grand Prize. He has held the IGFA 6-lb. tippet record for Atlantic Bonito since 1994. Dave's skill with rod, vise, pen and camera has been featured in over a half-dozen books including Bob Veverka's Innovative Saltwater Flies (Stackpole, 1999) and numerous periodicals including Field & Stream, Fish & Fly, Fly Fisherman, Fly Fishing in Saltwaters, Fly Fishing & Tying Journal, Saltwater Fly Fishing, Salt Water Sportsman, Sedge & Mayfly (Italy) and Sportfishing amongst others.

Some of his photography has recently been published in the book "Fly Fishing for Striped Bass" by Rich Murphy. We're currently working on Limited Edition prints of some of the photos featured there...
