Biography & ThoughtsI have been fly fishing for many years, on some very fine waters, particularly in my home province of Ontario in Canada. I am a “trout bum” in many ways. But it’s never just about catching fish. I look forward to sharing some of my “story” with you.

“No matter how complicated life can get — remember life is sometimes like fly fishing; after turning over every rock in the river trying to “match the hatch”, you have probably spooked every fish for miles — so don’t let the “little things” BUG you — just enjoy whatever you find.” Mike Ormsby

“The solution to any problem — work, love, money, whatever — is to go fishing, and the worse the problem, the longer the trip should be.” -John Gierach

”Living gracefully in any kind of natural environment takes patience and acceptance: the two qualities we Americans have pretty much bred out of ourselves.”
John Gierach
Forum Signature“Fly fishing is solitary, contemplative, misanthropic, scientific in some hands, poetic in others, and laced with aesthetic considerations. It’s not even clear if catching fish is actually the point.” -John Gierach
