The Blackfly Outfitter team announced that Matti Majorin is joining their Blackfly family. Blackfly said in a release that Matti has been a steadfast and strong supporter of Blackfly from the very beginning. For years he has supported the development of the Blackfly brand with counsel, support and guidance, as well being a tireless ambassador around the globe and to the fly fishing trade.
Since the first day they met nearly twenty five years ago to fish for tarpon around Key West, Matti and Vaughn developed a very special friendship. His love of nature and of all things fly fishing, his talent as a fly tyer and his ability to put the fly where it mattered, made for some unforgettable days on the flats. Since then Vaughn said they have been very lucky to share many days on the flats at the Blackfly Lodge, bringing back more than our share of fishing stories.
With an international background and DNA wired for travel, Matti has been very lucky to wander around the globe visiting many places.
From his beloved and native Finland, to the Kola Peninsula and all the way to Tierra Del Fuego, Patagonia, the Seychelles and the Amazon, Matti has traveled in pursuit of tarpon, bonefish, trout, salmon, northern pike, musky, sailfish, peacock bass, and many other species.
Throughout his travel and because of his passion for fly fishing, Matti has also managed to build great friendships with many in the fly fishing world.
Recently Blackfly ,in a quest to serve their customers better, began a new chapter at Blackfly Outfitters with a greatly expanded store, a new Café and Taproom right next door.
Matti is helping them develop these ventures as a partner, and as our Brand Research Manager, as well as our Travel Ambassador. With his help and with the help of their great partners in the travel industry, Blackfly is about to offer hosted trips, new fly fishing schools, and a greatly expanded web presence.
Together with the team at Untamed Angling, Matti will host a trip to the Marié River in Brazil from Sept 28 – Oct 6.
