Connor Murphy: “Fly Fishing the Chosen River: Western Alaska and the Pacific Salmonid Ecosystem”


A Fort Collins native, Connor Murphy has been an avid fly fisherman and trout enthusiast for most of his life. Over the last 15 years Connor has traveled the country as an exhibition fly tier in addition to competing extensively in both fly fishing and fly-casting.  Connor was one of the next generation that attended CTU’s Youth Conservation and Flyfishing Camp many years ago.


Connor has been a familiar face around St. Peters Fly Shop in Ft. Collins for much of the last decade as well, either in shop, teaching classes or guiding locally.  Since his graduation from Colorado State University in 2017 with a degree in Fisheries Biology, Connor has spent his summers as a guide for Dave Duncan and Sons ltd. on the Kanektok River in Alaska. His talk will focus on Alaska fishing.
