This page will contain original articles written just for the web site as well as some of my published writings from fly fishing magazines. Scroll down the page to see the goods.

With the encouragement of several good friends, I started writing for Kype magazine. When a new issue is published, the previous issue will be offered here as a virtual magazine free of charge!

Thanks for reading them. My hope is to share the knowledge I have been fortunate enough to receive.
