My journey began in Utah before taking me to the shores of Long Island, New York, during my youth. It was in this coastal haven that my profound affinity for fishing truly blossomed. 1993 marked my entry into the world of tying flies, followed by a swift immersion into fly fishing a mere year later. As I experienced the exhilaration of landing fish on flies of my creation, a transformation unfolded, turning a once-cherished pastime into an insatiable obsession. This fixation ignited a lifelong odyssey fueled by the unceasing pursuit of transforming a simple hook into an intricate masterpiece that can fool even the most discerning fish.
