Flies tied by Jean-Paul Lipton
Jean-Paul Lipton resides in Detroit Lakes, Minnesota, where he performs fisheries management work for the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. When he is not busy working on stream habitat restoration projects for the DNR, he enjoys spending time on the Otter Tail River where he pursues carp and other roughfish species on the fly.
Lipton applies his knowledge of stream biology, ecology, and geomorphology in his development and application of unconventional fly fishing techniques to pursue carp and other underutilized fish species. Lipton has spent countless hours studying and monitoring their feeding habits and diets, painstakingly developing fly patterns and the techniques necessary to convince a sub terminally mouthed fish to take an artificial fly.
Lipton’s blog, http://www.roughfisher.com, features his latest carp and roughfish fly patterns and news. #artisanflies #flyfarming
