Born and raised in Western Pennsylvania, I bought and casted my first fly rod at the age of 20. I have been fishing for over 48 years and mostly in the west. I moved west to Utah in 1977 with the dream of fishing the waters of the Rocky Mountains. After some moving around and fishing waters in Utah, Western Wyoming and Southwestern Montana, I landed in New Mexico in 1981. I have been fishing the waters of Northern New Mexico and Southern Colorado for the past 39 years. I became a member of Trout Unlimited about 10 years ago with hope of getting involved in conservation and restoration projects related to water and trout. I have been a member of the TU-Bosque Chapter for the past two years and a board member of the TU-New Mexico Council for over a year. Blue Skies . . . Cold Waters.
