I grew up in Montana with a fly pole in my hand and I now live in Wisconsin. I started tying flies at an early age and have continued to tie flies for myself and friends along with sell my flies at a local bait shop.

The materials have helped me to develop some unique flies for fishing a wide range of fish such as pan fish, walleye, musky, northern pike and of course trout, steelhead and salmon. With the competition heavy during the salmon run several individuals are always watching what I am using and asking due to my success in catching king salmon. The local bait shop has given me an outlet for selling my flies. My biggest sellers are my walleye bucktails with scuds and sow bugs for ice fishing. more…

We love fall fishing in the west. We suffer through winter cold and ice in the guides, we exult in that brief interval before peak runoff blows our streams out, then settle into the summer fishing – dries early on, then terrestrials. We might even swing a few streamers now and then – actually quite a bit. By this time, we’re sun-browned and sure of ourselves, any early season doubts about gear or jitters about fly selection are way behind us. We’re fly anglers. Not perfect, but competent and improving. more…
