Earl Hamilton, British by birth, lives most of the time in the Philippines where he is the owner and operator of DNA Fly Fishing Co. He is an avid saltwater fly fisherman. He started Ocean Pacific Leisure, the parent company of DNA and commercial saltwater fly tying operation, back in 2001. Earl felt the need to create a material that would better be suited to make medium sized saltwater flies with more mobility and movement in the water while maintaining its baitfish shape. He is most famous for his Bush Pig Fly series that is used all over the world for various saltwater species.
