Hi everyone and welcome to The Fly Fishing Worlds website. I have been a passionate fly fisherman since the age of 10 and have spent most of my adult life on the rivers in Colorado. I have traveled all over the world chasing fish species of many types, and live to be on the water
As a kid growing up in Colorado my father was, a fly-fishing guide and I spent most of my summers following him on the rivers. I’ve spent so much of my time in money into this sport it only made sense that I got a job in the industry, I Started working in my local fly shop and soon became a guide as well.
Now it’s time to help give back,
Over the Years I have learned a lot about both fresh water and salt water fly-fishing, from rods and reels, to fly lines and tippet, to flies and tying materials……and I want to offer other insight to many of these products as well as tips and techniques that are being used by the pros today.
A Little about my fly-fishing story
As a kid I was obsessed with hiking to high alpine lakes to catch small but beautiful cutthroat trout, every weekend I would pick a new lake near my home in Frisco Colorado, and head up for the day with my small rod and a handful of small dries and nymphs and catch as many of these eager fish as I could,
Soon I discovered the rivers and with the aspect of the moving waters, and the multitude of bug hatches I was hooked, I became absolutely in love with matching the hatch the different bugs, and the different ways in which I could catch them. From dry fly hatches in the summers, to streamers in the fall, to nymph fishing in the winters.
Then came the salt water and the traveling once I started doing a little research and found all the different species and different locations I could go to continue this passion I was completely hooked. From Stealhead Fishing in Alaska to Bone fishing in Mexico, to pike fishing in Canada and the list goes on, so many places and so little time in my life I just wanna see them all.
Fly Fishing has become a way of life for me and the one thing that drives me every day, the people I’ve met and places it has taken me is something that I wish I could share with everyone. So I hope I can help new anglers and old from this site with anything they may need.
