    Biography
    I still consider myself somewhat new to the sport, though I've been fly fishing for 7 years. I say this because no matter how much I learn, there always seems to be something else I do not know.

    I come from a past of bass fishing with crank baits, spinners and plastics. I really only got serious about fly fishing 3 years ago (2011). There's something about being in the great outdoors (likely standing in the middle of some small body of water) in a kind of "you against the fish" challenge, that just makes the sport so rewarding, even on those days when the fishing doesn't go my way. While I still do some spinner fishing, I don't get the same sense of satisfaction as with fly fishing.

    I currently own more fly rods than I will tell my wife about. One is my first rod which has been retired. At least one (maybe two) of these rods was purchased in hopes of my son using it at some point. He's 10 and has begun fishing with me. I've been told I'm following the normal progression including now tying some of my own flies. We both love the outdoors, camping, etc. and follow safe catch & release practices. I was the Den Leader of his Cub Scouts Den. As Cub Scouts, we also practiced "leave no trace" when we are in the outdoors. I thought that training was part of a great lead-in to fly fishing. He's now a Boy Scout and I train other Scouts in his Troop on the Fly Fishing Merit Badge.

    My primary fishing holes are located around Hagerstown (Beaver Creek, Owens Creek, Big Hunting Creek) and in Garrett County (North Branch of the Potomac, Savage River, Casselman River), Maryland. Initially interested in trout, I am beginning to expand the areas and types of fish I pursue. I have fished for smallmouth with my son in Canada (He caught the biggest fish!) and am planning our first New York steelhead trip.

    Fly rods in my current quiver include Hardy Zeniths, St Croixs(Legend Elite & Imperial), a Redington or 2(CT & an old RedFly2), BVK and an Orvis Clearwater 2.
