About Me

Long story short...

For my 21st birthday, my parents bought me a custom Fenwick fly rod FL 90-6-4 made by Don Holt of Cooke City, MT. He was living in Hollister, CA at the time. For years, the rod just sat there in immaculate condition in the PVC tube.

Fast forward to 2007...

I'd been a long time trout spin fisherman and had always wondered about the mystique of fly fishing...wandered into a fly shop in Albany, CA...got a couple of lessons from their cool staff...caught on quick...bought a Sage outfit and spent the majority of the 2007 Summer weekends in the Sierras...near Kirkwood, CA...I was hooked and even brought out that original fiberglass rod that was gifted to me in 1984 (which I broke while fishing the American River and have since had the rod repaired by a gentleman who I met on the forum).

I have now turned my attention to fiberglass and bamboo because I like slow action smoothness of the cast. I have dabbled in some simple bamboo rod restoration and would like to learn some more.

It's been fun and I've met some cool people. I've been to Idaho and to Patagonia, Chile to pursue some fly fishing good times...I've read Gierach, Engle and Dave Ames with some rob building books on the way...

Life is good...
