Biography & ThoughtsI've been a photographer for 24 years now. I started my journey with a string and a Agfa medium format camera fixed upon a twenty pound tripod. The string had a series of knots tied into it at one foot intervals... it told me focal length from the film plane. Thinking back it was a crude way of doing things before I could afford a 35mm SLR. Come to think of it I spent every spare dollar I had on film, paper, toner, and fixer. I would go into the darkroom and get lost in a project... I miss those days. Now I work with the Nixon digital stuff... what fun stuff and WHAT FEEDBACK! Today, I pack a few lenses, body, and flyboxs into a waterproof Simms backpack and a monopod which I carry onto the river. Sometimes I'll use the monopod as a wading staff when the need arises. Over the past four years I have produced some wonderful work on the water. Maybe someday I will put the photo's into a collection in the form of a book... but for now I just share them with friends and other fly fishing buds. Regardless of what I do with these images I am pleased with them and thats all that really matters. I have been asked to guide by a few outfitters and have turned down the offer, I'm afraid I would yell at my sports and fishing would no longer be fun. I lack the ability to be patient. I am self taught at everything... hobbies and career. I tend to fish in water that holds big fish, big quiet pools with fish that are wickedly tough to fool... My life has followed that same philosophy. For the time being it keeps me moving forward. I wrap All the flies I fish with. I like thorax style tied the proper way. I am working on tube spey flies for salmon and steelhead, so many options there. I love cane that is done the right way. Spey casting is something I just started three years ago. I really find it a relaxing sport. lets face it working upstream with a dry fly is not relaxing... it is hard work and you must stay amped at all times to score. Well enough of this.... I need to get to my vise the trico's are not far away and my box is not ready for such an event.
Forum SignatureFishing with nymphs is for fat little kids... man up and throw a dry.
