Occupation Professional Fly Fisherman, Fly Casting Instructor, Fly Tyer, Writer.
Location Olympic Peninsula, Washington, United States
Introduction I moved to the Olympic Peninsula from New England in the fall of 2000, after several previous seasons of Alaska guiding. I had lived in New York and New England for most of my life, where I was a lifetime outdoorsman, fly fisherman, boatman and, in later years I became a Guide. But As Yukon poet Robert Service once said: "The North has got him". And so it is with me and Alaska, and the Pacific Northwest. After moving to Port Townsend and the Olympic Peninsula I still guided In Alaska, and then on Kamchatka Russia. I have been exploring; fly fishing for Wild Sea-Run Coastal Cutthroat Trout, Wild Rainforest Winter and Summer Steelhead, Pacific Salmon,river and lake trout and char, and teaching flycasting for fly fishers on the Washington Olympic Peninsula waters ever since. I am active in many conservation efforts and regional fisheries enhancement projects, and I donate time to the organizations who are working to restore, conserve and protect our wild fisheries and aquatic and marine habitats.
