I am a
self-taught fly fisherman/fly-dresser who grew up under the bright lights of the big city,
Toronto (Canada) that is. Over the last eight years fly fishing/tying has been more to me
than just a weekend hobby. The sport has become the staple that most my life revolves
around. I have for the past several years been a fly fishing guide, commercial tier for
lodges and private clients, teaching classes, and freelance writing for different fishing
websites. Small stream fly fishing for wild trout is what I enjoy the most. I like being
able to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city for a day to explore the
breathtaking river scenery. The grace of fly fishing is something that I have always
loved. The simple fact that you have a chance of hooking into a trophy trout is just icing
on the cake to enjoying the wilderness.
My educational background consists of a
Masters of Science degree in Medical Laboratory Sciences from Florida International
University, Miami, in 2001 and a Bachelors of Science degree in Biology from Northland
College, Ashland Wisconsin, in 1999. Born in Montreal, Canada, I now call the secluded
streams and vast northwoods of Ashland, Wisconsin home.
If you have any questions or comments
feel free to contact me, well not much more is needed to be said on my behalf other than
hope to see you out on the waters .....
