Tight Lines is Northeast Wisconsin’s largest fly shop and offers a wealth of knowledge and equipment to local anglers. The shop also contains one of the largest fly tying selections around
Charlie Piette is the shop manager at Tight Lines. He has been a fixture there for over a decade, starting out as a college sophomore and continuing on as he completed his years of higher education. Ultimately, he earned a master’s degree in environmental science and policy at UW Green Bay.
As a Wisconsin native, Charlie’s fishing experience is best described as “eclectic”. He pursues much of what the state has to offer, with some favorites being spring creek trout, river smallmouth, and lake-run browns. His desire for fishing variety combined with a serious travel bug has also led him to various locales in the Pacific Northwest, Rocky West, and the Bahamas.
Charlie’s desire to help others progress as fly anglers is his driving force. Whether it’s through guided trips, classes, or daily interactions in the shop, he loves ensuring that others are more successful on the water.
In this informal talk, Charlie will tell us about new equipment in the world of fly fishing, starting with rods, reels, and lines but going beyond that to cover other angling essentials. He will also have something to say about equipment and techniques for spey casting and othertechniques two-handed . Some of the equipment discussed will be on display, and Charlie will be standing by to answer questions.
