Fishing Experience:

My mom first introduced me to fly fishing in the tiny creeks of western Massachusetts when I was around 10 and I have been hooked ever since. Since then I have been lucky enough to fly fish all over the world; The Miramichi river for Salmon, Alaska for big Rainbows and Steelhead, the Bahamas for Bonefish, Mexico for Permit, Florida Keys for Tarpon, Seychelles for Milkfish, All of the east coast for Stripers and Albacore and most of the western rivers for trout.

Exotic Experience

The Seychelles was probably the most exotic - certainly the furthest away!

Wish List:

I would love to go to Bolivia to catch Golden Dorado.

Camping, trying to Hike 14ers, Big Game Archery and Bird Hunting, Ice Hockey, Coaching my kids hockey teams and Traveling

Favorite Thing About Guiding:

Watching people have fun and getting fired up about fishing.
