Joe Raymond is originally from Troy, New York where he grew up fishing on the Hudson River with bait.
He discovered and started to fly fish in 1991 after reading about it and got “hooked”. At the time his boss got so tired of him talking fly fishing he actually gave him a day off to go and buy his first fly fishing equipment. He then went to the library and checked out a lot of books and immersed himself.
Apart from living all over the world he has fished all over the world: Hawaii, New Zealand, Mongolia, Europe to name a few.
Joe joined NMT in 2019 and now leads NMT’s Fly-Tyers Roundtable Meeting held on the first and third Tuesday of each month 7:00 PM at the North 4th St. Art Center 4904 4th St, Albuquerque just north of Griegos Rd.
