Striper Fishing with Tim O’Neill
Tim is the founder and owner of O’Neill’s Fly Fishing as well as the owner of the Norvise fly tying system. He began fly fishing at the age of 10. During the following 3+ decades, his passion for the sport carried him through many parts of the industry including; retail sales, commercial fly tying, lecturing, seminar teaching, and guiding. Tim’s fly fishing exploits have been written up in publications like “Out and About Delaware” and “Delaware Today” as well as being interviewed for NPR radio to discuss fly fishing.
A Master Machinist, Tim has been manufacturing parts for the Norvise for well over a decade. His personal and professional relationship with Norm Norlander made Norm’s choice to pick Tim as his successor a sound one. He considers himself an educator first and gets the most pleasure in helping others learn more about this great sport.
