I began woodworking in my 20’s by dumpster diving at a nearby door manufacturer for some of the most beautiful kiln-dried mahogany, maple, oak, and walnut I had ever seen. Being that I was always the artistic type, this wood soon turned into beautiful furniture. So began my love affair with my second favorite thing in this world to do.
I started fishing when I was very young, and something about it never let go of me. Now, at 38, I fish for everything, on any gear, anywhere I can possibly do it- From bluegill to blue marlin- From trolling for roosterfish to fly fishing for 8” native rainbows- From Alaska to Costa Rica. I still get giddy like that 7-year old school boy catching perch from the dock on Deer-Flat Reservoir in Idaho.
Now, I am working very hard to try an d make a living combining those two things I love the most. I make custom landing nets.
