Welcome to . . . thanks for visiting my site.

I am fascinated with all fishing – fresh water, salt water, inshore, offshore . . . but I’m most passionate about saltwater fly fishing – especially stalking the flats and shallows for all the game fish that hunt in these waters. What’s my favorite? Hunting permit and trophy bonefish on desolate, windswept grass flats is about as good as it gets for this cowboy! I discovered saltwater angling at a very young age and I’ve never looked back.

I began outdoor writing and photography over 25 years ago and have strived to contribute in some small way to the ancient sport of fly fishing. To date, I’ve authored two books on saltwater fly fishing and I’m presently working on two new titles. I have also contributed a host of topically-diverse short- and full-feature articles and freelance photography to several leading outdoor publications, including Fly Fisherman, tail Fly Fishing Magazine, American Angler, Sport Fishing, Flyfishing & Tying Journal, On The Water, and more. I also provide saltwater fly fishing instruction, seminars, and demonstrations.
