I have been fly fishing since I was 11 years old. I taught myself how to fly cast using a spinning rod set up before I could afford to buy a fly rod. Before I ever went fly fishing a friend of my dad showed me how to tie flies and that is what started my journey. I have been tying my own flies ever since. Most of my fishing has been in Alaska but I have spent a little bit of time in Washington State. I love everything about fly fishing and I love to talk to people about the sport.
