LocationWellsville, NY
Biography & ThoughtsI am a trained artist with a B.F.A. in Fine Art and a Masters in Synaesthetic Education, both from Syracuse University. Currently, I teach, part time, for Empire State College, and operate a graphic and fine art business. I'm a native New Yorker, and I still live in NY close to the banks of the Genesee River. I'm married with 5 children, 14 grandchildren, and one great grandchild on the way.

To me, Fly-fishing is an art and science, combined, and as such it is the experience, and perhaps sharing it, that is so very important to enjoyment of it.
Forum Signature"I have the highest respect for the skilled wet-fly fisherman, as he has mastered an art of very great difficulty." Edward R. Hewitt
