I live in Connecticut, I tie commercally and guide out of a buddies fly shop. I have been a trout fisherman for about 46 of my 50 years and have had a fly rod in hand for about 38 of those years. I have fished all of New England, New Brunswick CA, New york, florida and Montana. My passion is small stream wild trout and their polar opposite Great lakes steelhead. I have fished both salt and fresh but have come to prefer the sweet water. I have my dad who just turned 85 to thank for my fly fishing passion and have passed it down to my three daughters. One of my bets days ever fishing was about 7 years ago when my dad, my oldest daughter and I got to fly fish together for the first and sadly the last time. It was an awesome day for me.
