Fly Fishing Guide and Instructor

  • Fly Fishing

I’ve always wanted to learn all I can about fish.  Since I was a little kid I’ve caught them with nets and flies, observing how they behave in the wild and in aquaria.  Through two college degrees in fisheries science I have gotten a chance to study many fishes from minnows to marlin.  Flyfishing has allowed me to interact with fish and their environments while trying to find the best way to catch them.  After a class or guided trip with me I hope you feel more confident in your ability to catch fish.  Before each trip, we’ll discuss your goals and form a plan to help achieve those.  If you want to cast better, choose the right fly, learn where to catch fish, or be able to identify insects in the stream we can cater our trip to your needs. Whether this is your first time holding a rod or you’ve been fishing for years I will do all I can to ensure you catch fish, but more importantly I want you to learn how to catch fish.  Even when I’m not fishing I love spending time on the water.  The Rappahannock is a great river for snorkeling and paddling and I take full advantage of any opportunity to get wet.  As a full time biology and marine science teacher I get to share my passions with others.  I hope we can spend time on the water learning about fish and flyfishing together.
