In 2008 I decided to start guiding with a local company. I brought my own unique take on the local warm water fisheries with me. This attracted a lot of attention from local media and anglers looking for something different to target with flies. Along with guiding for the fish I enjoy more, I also guided a lot of trout anglers. I did enjoy this, but I quickly realized that guiding trout was not my favorite thing to do. I definitely enjoy fishing them by myself much more.
For this last reason and having the desire to work for myself, I left that guide service in the fall of 2010 to do my own thing: guiding for warm water species in Vermont, tying flies commercially, instructing casting, fly fishing, and fly tying, writing about fly fishing, and speaking to angling groups about the fishing I do. This is the latest and greatest endeavor I have undertaken and I am looking forward to seeing what it brings about! I will keep you posted about how it is developing and keep your eyes peeled for a new website up and running before too long....
