For nearly three decades, Ted has been honing his skills in fly tying and leveraging them for successful fishing endeavors. Nestled in the heart of Northern Michigan, he's presented with an array of species to target, and he seizes any opportunity to venture westward or explore the saltwater domain whenever possible. During his college years, he not only acquired the art of fly tying but also mastered the art of fishing them, which has profoundly influenced his professional path. Since graduating in 1996, Ted has been intricately connected to the fly fishing industry. Currently, he extends his expertise as a guide, leading anglers through the diverse waters surrounding Traverse City, Michigan. Alongside this, he holds the distinction of being a FFF certified casting instructor, a skilled custom tier, and a creative fly designer.
