We are proud to announce Mark Dysinger as a member of our Ambassador Team here at the American Museum of Fly Fishing!

Captain Mark Dysinger has fished the New England salt most of his life. Although he is skilled in many angling methods, he is most accomplished with the fly rod. As the owner of Flyosophy Charters, he specializes in the northeast slam of striped bass, bluefish, and false albacore. Although he guides in Long Island Sound and its surrounding waters, he is also passionate about freshwater fishing and is a recognized authority on fly fishing for northern pike.

Mark has fished extensively across North America, and his works have appeared in numerous print and online publications, including three books. He has been a featured innovative fly tyer for Eastern Flyfishing Magazine, and his Bunny split fly (aka Musky Bunny Twin Tail) is included in the “deadly dozen” musky patterns in Rob Tomes’ Musky on the Fly. He is an experienced teacher both on and off the water, and takes great joy in seeing others succeed. His enthusiasm and attention to detail make him a popular instructor, and his topical presentations are both informative and entertaining. Mark’s patience and enthusiasm have positively affected many fellow anglers. Mark resides on the Connecticut coast with his wife Anne and daughter Lucy.
