With my roots firmly planted in West Palm Beach, FL, I've immersed myself in the world of fly-fishing for over five decades, and my tying skills have flourished for more than a decade. Throughout my journey, I've gravitated towards the captivating realm of warm-water angling, mainly targeting Bluegill Panfish and Large Mouth Bass in Florida's renowned fisheries. The allure of South Florida's exotics, such as the Mayan Cichlid Peacock Bass and the Oscar, has led me to thrilling encounters with poppers and #2 rods. I've settled in middle Georgia, where I operate a small aluminum welding business. In between wielding my welding tools, you'll find me at my tying bench or out on the water, exploring new fly patterns and pursuing my angling passions.
