Biography:
I started fishing with my dad at age 3. In junior high I picked up fly fishing by practicing in the front yard and at local farm ponds. Growing up I mostly fished for bass. Just in the last couple years I've realized how great a place The Driftless Area is, and as a result I'm fishing more often with a fly rod.

Friday morning we left Des Moines around 9AM. We arrived in Decorah about 12:30 for lunch at a little spot called La Rana. It's a cozy little cafe that uses locally grown meat and produce. For being a small town, Decorah
