About Me

Basic Information

About me
My college years were
put on hold when drafted into the Army and sent to Korea.  After discharge
I chose not to continue my education for a sales career with a large
corporation.  I worked in marketing and sales training for most of my


My passion has been
hunting, fishing, trapping, and camping in the outdoors since I was a
youngster.  When I was twelve years old I was given a fly rod and a home
made fly tying vise, which increased my interest in trout fishing.


I fished the streams
and lakes of New Jersey until I was twenty six, when transferred to New
York.  I lived in a town of about 500 residents and a great trout stream
within 10 minutes away.  I helped start a Boy Scout Troop, became a Scout
Master, and later the District Scout Commissioner.  Hunting and fishing
while hiking and primitive camping were frequent activities.


I am married with 2
daughters and two sons and we used to camp and fish together as a family. 
I taught my youngest son how to trap muskrats.  I was also very interested
in gems, minerals, and prospecting so spent a lot of time in the outdoors. 
My sales territory allowed me to travel frequently and fish many streams in New
York and Pennsylvania.


Although I have been
a resident of Southern Pines, North Carolina for the past 12 years (2001) I miss
New York a lot.  It takes me over 4 hours to drive to North Carolina's closest
trout stream but go when I can.
