For the Love of Salmon and Steelhead

Born into a fly fishing family in Montana, I started tying flies at the age of 4 and never quit. I have witnessed all the new materials come to life. I now live in Wisconsin and fish the Root River in Racine Wisconsin for Steelhead in the spring and fall. The king salmon run is in the fall along with a different strain of steelhead, big browns and coho salmon. I tie a wide variety of flies from nymphs to ska-oppers. My ‘go to’ fly though for all species is a black stone fly. It all depends on the fish and what size they want. This season I hope to catch my first steelhead on a dry fly.

I will post again if I succeed along with a picture of the fly and fish!
