I am a lifelong angler, chasing fish since childhood. Specifically, I picked up a fly rod in 1997 and I have not put it down since. In New England I enjoy casting flies to smallmouth bass, carp, striped bass, bluefish and false albacore. Pursuing brackish water species (wherever I can) is what I enjoy the most! My professional background for the last 16 years has been in the field of conservation, education, and protection of our natural resources. Recognizing my love for fly fishing and my passion for teaching, I became a Federation of Fly Fishers International (FFI) Certified Fly-Casting Instructor (CI). I teach all things fly fishing to individuals, school groups, clubs, and fly fishing shows.
