Ellis Hatch Jr. (November 28, 1931 - May 17, 2018)
NH Master Traditional Artist and 2003 Governor Arts Awards Folk Heritage Award Recipient Ellis Hatch, Jr., has passed away. As a world-renowned fly tyer, he dedicated his life to perpetuating the art of fly tying in the State of New Hampshire and beyond. His undying spirit and enthusiasm for the history and lore of fly fishing made him an icon for those who sought to improve their skill. He will be sorely missed in both the fly tying and traditional arts communities.
