I have been tying flies for 27 years, starting when I was 14. I started tying flies before I started fly fishing.

I live outside St. Paul MN and fish the driftless region of Minnesota and Wisconsin. I also fish out west a few times a year.

I am a Loon Outdoors ambassador, Prostaff for Fly Fish Food and Firehole outdoors.  I also have several of my patterns being tied and sold through Fulling Mill.

I like the creative parts of fly tying. I enjoy tying flies that not only catch fish but also look good. I am always thinking about flies!  My background in photography helps with photographing flies for social media.  I am active on Instagram as well as Facebook.  I also have a YouTube channel.

I primarily fly fish for trout but will cast a fly to anything that swims.

I have a wife and 2 young boys keeping me busy when not tying flies or fishing.
