I started fly fishing when I was in my teens with my Grandmother on family trips. Over the last 25 years I have been lucky enough to fish out west in Colorado and Wyoming as well as the Adirondacks in New York. The list of places I hope to go is growing ever longer with New Zealand and Iceland with their meter long Browns at the top of the list! Who wouldn't love to hook into one of those?!
I fish daily here in Virginia. Being on the water is such an amazing and soulful experience. I call it my Zen time. You'll find me out fishing anything from Bass on poppers in a farm pond during the summer to mountain streams and Brook Trout, our wild Rainbows and native Browns. If there is water in the central Va region I have most likely fished it with my trusty fishing buddy Jack Russell Terrier Stella in tow.
My other passion is Horses and I ride professionally as well as work for The Orvis Company which I love. I love to talk to anglers of all ages and experience levels and enjoy seeing them go out and catch fish. After all, the tug is the drug!
