Nevada City, California, United States
Fishing, Lake Fishing
I am a master fly fisherman and licensed guide. I have been tying flies since 1972. I am a published author, educator and innovative tier. As an award winning public speaker, I have given presentations to clubs and expos across California and Nevada.
When I was two years ago, my family moved to Paradise to be close to prime fishing venues, as my father was a fly fisherman. He was later inducted into the Federation of Fly Fisher’s Hall of Fame. After high school, I became a professional snowboarder. This gave me the opportunity to compete in national competitions, have feature movie roles and work in research and development programs with leading manufacturers. In 1993, my passion for fly-fishing became my career.
I have been guiding for 18 years. Since 1998, I have operated my own fishing guide service business. I have been trained by some of the region’s best-known anglers over the years. I love to teach anglers of all skills. My reward is seeing people reach their next level in fishing. I continue to pass on my father’s legacy with every cast.
My advice to all anglers is to keep it simple, be confident in your presentation and most of all, have fun!
