Andrew's life revolves around fly fishing and tying, a cherished family tradition. Raised in the Riding household, he was fortunate to have his Grandmother, Rainy and father, Jesse, as mentors, guiding him into the family business and turning him into a skilled fly fisherman. While he finds joy in fishing locally for trout and panfish, a trip to Canada ignited his true passion.
Andrew experienced the thrill of pursuing formidable predators like Pike, Walleye, and Lake Trout in the vast Canadian wilderness. The encounter left an indelible mark on him; now, he can't get enough of these challenging fishing adventures. Back home, he often finds himself at his father's tying desk, engrossed in creating unique fly patterns for his next fishing expedition. The art of tying flies has become not just a hobby but an essential part of his fishing journey.
