About Me

I am a 41 year old accountant/auditor living on the East coast of Canada.

I fell in love with fishing for trout in local streams when I was around 5 years old. I started fly fishing for trout when I was 10.

I began tying flies in the early 1980s after my parents purchased me a basic fly tying kit for Christmas one year.  I loved the materials and I read all that I could access on how to tie flies.  I taught myself how to tie flies.  I started fly fishing for salmon about the same time I started to tie flies.  It took me several years of salmon fishing before I ever hooked one.  I was probably 14 years old when I hooked (and lost) my first salmon.  I was addicted immediately.

I purchased Poul Jorgensen's salmon fly book and became even more interested in tying the classics.  I started to hang out with Bryant Freeman (Eskape Anglers) and Jerome Molloy in the mid to late 1980s.  With Judy Dunham's book, I was awestruck by the flies from Ken Sawada and Paul Schmookler.  My journey to tying classics was permanently engrained and I've been tying them ever since.  Most tof the materials I use to this day were purchased back then from Bryant, Phil Castleman and John Shewey.

Other tiers who have influenced me in my early tying days are Belarmino Martinez, Syd Glasso, Megan Boyd and others.

I now spend far more time at the vice than in the river although my real passion is fishing for salmon and trout with featherwing flies tied in hand.

I've been a member of this great forum for ~ 5 years and my goal now is to be an active contributor to this site.

I've been married for over a decade and I have two wonderful children (daughter Abby and son Nicholas).

I wish to thank Will for his dedication to this wonderful site.  This place feels like family to me.
