I grew up in Washington, and therefore consider the small town of Moses Lake my hometown. After earning my Associate’s degree at Big Bend Community College I moved back to Idaho to attend Boise State University where I graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Interpersonal Communications.
In Idaho is where I discovered fly fishing, and after graduation I put my hard-earned degree to use in a local fly shop.
I am a stay at home dad to my two boys, Mason and Cruz. Right now both of my kids are at an age where they think everything I do is amazing: fly fishing, underwater fish photography, foraging for mushrooms, and fly tying.
The scenarios I get myself into just to catch a fish can be down right stupid and dangerous at times. However, when I find myself in said situation, I easily slip into the mindset of, “well I’m already here, so I may as well make a cast…” making it apparent that I love fishing, and specifically fly fishing.
