Years Fishing?


Who introduced you to fly fishing?

I was introduced to fly fishing at the age of 16 when I actually saw somebody fly fishing and it got my curiosity. I knew right there this is what I wanted to do.

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

My homewaters in Southern Ontario are a little bit of everything, cold and warm water opportunities. I love chasing musky and steelhead on the fly.

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

The height of the season is the fall, steelhead and musky

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

Labrador ( Canada) for Atltantic Salmon and Florida, Cuba, Mexico, Bahamas actually I like them all as long as I can go fish. Would love to fish the Kola Penninsula in Russia and the Seychelles.

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

Love everything about them, the way they look and fish. Like I always said the 2 finest rods in the world: Thomas AND Thomas.

What's your current go-to fly?

The one that worked for me the last time I was out. Don't really have one. I love tying and fishing traditional spey flies for steelhead and for musky whatever my 11wt TNT can throw, lol
