I grew up in South Central PA. Began fly fishing as a young teenager then took a long hiatus from the sport after leaving for college. After retiring from the Coast Guard, I rediscovered fly fishing and fiberglass fly rods.
Small creek trout fishing; I like steep gradient, headwaters best.
Collecting "Blue Collar" reels & fiberglass rods; particularly fond of Wright & McGill & Eagle Claw Featherlight rods and Martin Tuna Cans & H-I Sportcraft reels
Rock, Blues, Rockabilly, Big Band

"...Maybe your stature as a fly fisherman isn't determined by how big a trout you catch, but by how small a trout you can catch without being disappointed..." John Gierach
