Born and raised in Colorado, my Dad taught me to fly fish at an early age. A family relative taught me fly tying at age twelve. I have been fly fishing from a float tube over 20 years. I enjoy teaching fly tying, fly fishing and fishing from a float tube. As a veteran, I became involved with Platte Rivers Veterans Fly Fishing and Project Healing Waters- Denver organizations. I host several trips a year for veterans from both programs at private warm water lakes in Hygiene and private trout lakes at Red Feather Lakes. I also serve on the Board of Directors for Red Feather Storage and Irrigation, managers of the private lakes. I find float tube fishing beneficial physically and very therapeutic as well as a successful way of catching fish. I am always willing to share my knowledge of float tube fishing with other anglers.
