I started fly fishing when I was 12 years old. I focused my efforts on dry fly fishing in those early years, my dad and I would chase the glamour hatches around western and central PA every year. As I got older I began I started branching out to the other fly fishing disciplines like streamer and nymph fishing. I began experimenting with “euro” nymphing in around 2009 or 10 and I’ve been honing that skill in ever since. I began fly fishing competitively in 2015 or 16. I am currently competing within the National Fly Fishing League and in regional qualifiers to hopefully one day make fly fishing team USA.
