Biography & ThoughtsMy interest in identification of aquatic insects developed as a natural byproduct of transitioning from other methods of fishing to fly fishing during my early 40ís. However, it was not until my retirement, which followed a 35-year career in information technology, that I was afforded the opportunity to fully pursue study of aquatic entomology and taxonomy.

Within several years following retirement, I had accumulated an enormity of texts and notes on aquatic entomology and taxonomy. And, it was becoming readily apparent that some manner of organizing and accessing that information was sorely needed, as accurate memory of minutia was definitely not my strong suit.

My initial approach was to organize all the information in an Access database, but it didnít take long to realize that this approach (alone) would not allow sharing the information with other flyfishers. So, I developed a website, which was initially just many entomology-related pages on the website of the flyfishing club to which I belonged. However, as my ever-increasing need for storage began to cause a problem, I took the big plunge, and got my own domain name and hosting provider. To date my website has received in excess of (300,000) separate visits, from (125) countries, representing all (6) inhabited continents.
