I’m a fisherman and photographer living in West Yellowstone, Montana. For twenty-some years I was a partner in Blue Ribbon Flies, a local specialty fly fishing shop. I currently spend most of my time fishing, photographing and teaching; in the winter season I tie flies commercially.
I began flyfishing in 1969, a time when bamboo and fiberglass still battled it out as the material of choice for rods. My early years were spent pursuing bluegills, bass and crappie in the Midwest, with yearly trips to fish for trout in Colorado (and later, Yellowstone Park). After earning a degree in Fisheries Biology from the University of Wyoming, I worked for several years on environmental issues with the Wyoming Game and Fish Department before moving to Montana. Along with fish and fishing, photography and teaching have long been interests of mine.
My pictures can be seen in magazines and catalogs, on websites, and in calendars. I’m the author of Yellowstone: Photographs of an Angling Landscape, and the co-author (with Craig Mathews) of Fly Patterns of Yellowstone, Fishing Yellowstone Hatches, and Fly Patterns of Yellowstone, Volume Two. My writings can be found under “Articles” on the main menu of this site and on my blog.
