I grew up in the river bottoms of East Texas. When I was nine I taught myself to fly fish and tie flies. Living all over Texas as a teenager gave me the chance to fish every corner of the state. I fell in love with the Hill Country where I met my wife Mary. For our first date we went fishing. I have guided hunting in West Texas and fishing across the Hill Country. I have been a commercial fly tyer and I have taught flytying for over 20 years. When I'm not Guiding, I'm dealing with Nuisance Wildlife in the Austin area. I was told when I was a kid that if I did something I loved to do then I would never have to work again in my life. Well it's true!
