Hi. I’m a father of two young boys, a husband, author, fly fishing guide and a musician. I fish for wild brown trout in the cool limestone waters of Central Pennsylvania year round. This is my home, and I love it. Friends. Family. And the river.

PODCAST: The Further You Walk, the More You Leave Behind (a Story) — S11 Intermission

Here’s a story about the solitude that so many of us seek on the water — how the full experience of planning for a trip, driving before dawn, walking in and exploring a river valley provides a respite from our daily life. It’s a chance for a clear mind and for renewed energy. “The Further You Walk, the More You Leave Behind” is about what we recover when we commit to full days and long distances, and how even after we return, we are changed.

PODCAST: How Woodsmanship Catches Fish — S11, Ep6

There’s an intangible quality built into the best anglers. It’s about being comfortable and natural around the water. It’s about having an instinct and a guiding intuition on a river that informs decision without even giving it much thought. It’s an innate knowledge of the environment and what will happen next. Knowledge of the woods, water, weather and the trout comes together with ease and adds up to something that is hard to identify.

  1. The “plop” of a bead head nymph on a dry-dropper rig, or from a properly weighted terrestrial pattern can produce an amazing lateral line response from big brown trout, drawing them from fairly long distances. I’ve watched trout form a wake as they charge to eat my fly in response to that perfect “plop”. When they’re in the right mood this is a very powerful tactic and a fantastic visual experience.
