About Me

  • About gila steve
    Biography
    Well i was born in 1960 in Alamogordo NM, My whole Family on both sides were (and Are) either farmers or ranchers. and all of them are hunters/fishermen. So i dident have much choice lol. My earlest memoreys are of hunting and fishing trips with my Dad and Uncles and Granddads. I bought my first flyrod when i was 11 or 12 and i still fish with it today. Its a Wright McGill/Eagle Claw 6/7 weight trail master and i just put an old Pflueger Sal-Trout 1554 with a 6 weight DT floating line on it. Any way i like fishing with glass rods and older reels.I have 6 fly rods right now and only 1 of them is a modern rod and reel.
    I spent a few years in my early 20s serveing my country.( Air Force) Then spent the next 25 years Cowboying all over the west(And Fishing/Hunting)
    During those years i learned to engrave,Silversmith and how to build bits and spurs and thats how i make a part of my liveing today.I also design large agriculturel drip irrigation systems. I have 3 stepsons and a good wife,More dogs than most people would beleave, a couple of good horses and more guns and fishing rods than i really need( Ask the Wife LOL) and live in the best country in the world and was born and raised in the best part of that country( the west) in my humble opinon. So over all i am an extremley luckey,blessed by God, happy man!!!
