I started life in 1951 and grew up in Southern California. I worked as a fireman and moved all over California. After 24 years of service I retired as a Battalion Chief in the fire department. I lived in Northern California within fishing distance of the Klamath, Trinity and Smith Rivers. I then went to and graduated from the Federal Law Enforcement Academy (FLETC) in Brunswick, Georgia. I was a Federal Law Enforcement Officer for about 6 years. After that, I then went to school to be an aircraft mechanic, (A&P). I worked on airplanes in Redding, CA then we moved to New Mexico in 2006. I'm a licensed airplane pilot, aircraft owner and licensed aircraft mechanic (A&P) with inspectors (IA) authorization and work at the airport here in Santa Fe, NM. I have a lathe and milling machine and enjoy working in my home machine shop. I have about 30 fly rods including 16 bamboo fly rods, with about 30 or so fly reels. I'm looking forward to finally settling down. I'm starting to gather up the equipment and supplies for making a bamboo rod and fly reel or two for myself.
