I've been fishing as long as I can remember. As soon as I was big enough I was in the river wet wading with my dad and brother. I got my first fly rod when I was 14 and started teaching myself. I used it occasionally and really enjoyed it, but when I started college something clicked and became absolutely obsessed! I love everything about fly fishing. From the bugs in the river to the ones I'm tying at the bench, if it has anything to do with fly fishing I'm all over it. Fishing gives me a reason to travel to places I probably never would have, and a sense of exploration, to find new water, always in search of that fish that will make a lasting memory. That's what makes fly fishing so addicting to me, well that and the feeling you get when you set the hook and feel that surge of power that immediately ensues on the other end of the line!
