27" brown trout, my largest ever. It was the sub-dominant fish in its pool. After this, I hooked the bigger one, but I couldn't land it.

Biography & Thoughts
Been fly fishing and tying in North Carolina about 4 years now. My favorite time to fish is in the snow in the winter. I love to guide friends and others new to the sport. I fish with a 8' 4 weight temple fork outfitters rod. My favorite fly is a prince nymph.

They say the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again... as many times as I cast hoping for a fish to take my fly, I ought to be in an asylum by now!
