About me
I’m a retired high school science teacher, living in Westland, Michigan. I’ve been a hunter, fisherman and outdoorsman my entire life. But, it wasn’t until 1984, that a friend of mine introduced me to the sport of fly fishing. I got the ‘bug’ real bad and within a year or two I had added fly tying and rod building to my list of sportsman’s skills.

Over the years, my flies and tying tips have appeared in such magazines as American Angler, Fly Tyer, Fly Fish America and Trout Fisherman, as well as many web sites. I fish with, and tie only dry flies, and I have a special interest in old flies of Michigan origin.

Although I have fished most of the great rivers in this country, my all time favorite is still, my home river, the Au Sable, here in Michigan.

My retirement is now providing me with the time I need to write a little and share with you some of the tips, tricks, patterns and experiences I’ve had over the years.

See you on the water…
