     I have lived in Southern California all my life.  I have been able to create a niche as an instructor at Laguna Niguel Lake teaching Stillwater Tactics for Trout.  I have been able to produce my own fly patterns and partnered with Bob Marriott's Fly Fishing Store to get them to the public.  Crowley Lake the premier waters of the Eastern Sierra's is considered my home waters,  Big Rainbows, Cutthroats, and Browns.  Being in the industry for the past 8 years has also led me to help various service groups like the Boy Scouts and Cub Scouts gain their merit badges in fishing.  

Fishing Experience

     I have been fly fishing the last 16 years.  It started as a wedding gift and has progressed from there.  I started with a float tube in the Eastern Sierras and loved it so much I could never get enough.  I soon became so involved I entered events like the:  Double Haul in the Fall and the Stillwater Classic known as the largest events for float tube fly fishing.  Stillwater tactics have become my specialty.  I have had other opportunities to help me more diverse in fly fishing such as:  Fly fishing guide for King Salmon on Kodiak Island in Alaska,  Bonefishing on Andros Island in the Bahamas, and Inshore Ocean fishing from Corbina to Tuna.
