Born and raised in upstate NY, I grew up fly fishing the great Catskill trout rivers and those in the Adirondacks.After fishing around the lower 48, Canada, and Alaska, I finally settled in Wilmington- located in the Northeastern Adirondacks. I began working for Fran Betters tying flies and guiding for his fly shop; it was here that I soaked up fly tying and fly fishing wisdom from the “Sage of the Ausable River.”Fly tying quickly became an essential skill, allowing me to customize and create patterns to improve my clients’ success and enjoyment.I now own and operate an Adirondack guide service specializing in the West Branch of the Ausable river, brook trout streams, and backcountry ponds.I provide local fly shops with my favorite flies and sell them on my website look forward to working with Togens Fly Shop and have been lucky to use Togens hooks and beads for the past few years.
