Fly Tyer, Daily Angler, Fisheries & aquatic Scientist

I have been tying flys and fly fishing since I was ten. It is an obsession I cannot deny. In the sixth grade my teachers had a hard time getting me to pay attention in class and pull my head out of a fly fishing book. I must have read them all by the time I was in high school. Sure, the girls got jealous of the time I spent fishing instead of courting them; some even learned to go fishing with me to spend time together, but most couldn't handle the long hours in the wilderness without a hot shower. Besides, I was there for the fishing. 

Listen to a podcast where Denver Outfitters and I discuss art, science and making fishing flies.
