Biography & Thoughts
I've been fishing since I was 2. Really. All my life. Fly fishing since about 16. Also, a great many years. The trout and other species of fish here in northeast Tennessee are fabulous. Browns, Rainbows and Brookies. 700 miles of trout streams in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Six or seven rivers with native (and stocked) trout populations. Lakes and reservoirs. One could fish here three times a week for the rest of their life and never fish the same place twice. And it's beautiful country. The best thing I ever did was moving here in retirement.
Also, I'm an amateur stream entomologist and fly tyer.
