Years Fishing?


Can you tell us a little about your home waters and the fish you pursue there?

The Housatonic and Farmington rivers in Connecticut.

What's the height of the season for you? What time of year is your personal favorite?

I like them all. Each season presents different opportunities and challenges.

What are your favorite travel destinations? What's on the bucket list?

My favorites are Maine and Canada, fishing for brookies and Atlantic Salmon. If I had to fish for only one species, it would be Atlantic Salmon hands down.

What you like most about Thomas and Thomas rods? Which rods do you fish?

For me it's about the performance, though I also love the fit and finish.

What's your current go-to fly?

Fishing a soft hackle on the swing.

My favorite thing about guiding is:

Sharing my passion for the outdoors, fishing, casting, etc.

What can new fisherman expect to get out of a guided trip? My favorite thing to teach a client is ...

Have fun, learn few things, and hopefully catch some fish. I especially like helping folks with their cast.

What's your ideal lunch when on the water? What do you actually pack?

They're the same: power bars, apples, chips and a sandwich. And plenty of water.

What fly fishing blogs/magazines do you read regularly?

Fly Fisherman, Fly Tyer, American Angler, Atlantic Salmon Journal, Trout.

When I'm not fishing you'll find me:

At the fly shop casting, or tying flies at home. I also do casting clinics and lessons with Speycasting North East.
