- About von behr
- I've been fishing for most of my life. I caught my first fish when I was about 11 years old. It was a largemouth bass hooked with a Rooster Tail, and I can still feel the euphoria of that moment when the fish struck that lure.
I jumped into fly fishing about 8 years ago, when my brother sent me a Ross reel as a birthday gift. Now, I will fly fish for anything anywhere at anytime. I live near the coast in Southern California, so the beach is the most convenient place for me to fish on a regular basis. I find the surf to be a challenging environment to hook and land fish, and it's very exciting, because I never know what is going to bite my fly.
Between the fluctuations in the tides and the surf, the conditions are never the same.
I occasionally fish local lakes, and go to the Sierras at least a couple of times a year.
I started tying my own flies about 3 years ago. I really enjoy the creative aspect of it, and there's nothing like fooling those fish with something you created.
