FEATURED ANGLER PROFILE
Tell us about yourself: I am a husband, father of a special needs adult, proud US Army veteran, published author and business coach/consultant. 18 Months ago, I was brought back into fly fishing by a client and was amazed at how much mental and emotional health I experienced as a result. It is the only thing that turns all the noise in my head off. I found tenkara while trying to learn as much as possible about how to be better at fly fishing. I think it was a blog about fishing tenkara in the winter that started me down the rabbit hole.
New to the 18 months and about 50 sessions
Favorite rod: I would have to say it is the One Type 1 with the Riverworks ZX-4 ’ being a closing second. My preferred way to fish is tactical nymphing, but I am falling deeper in love with ONI style after a guided trip with Rob Worthing.
Favorite fish: Native Brook Trout
Favorite book: Essentialism by Greg McKeown. No matter one’s ideological background, doing what is most essential is critical to the best expression of our own humanity.
