Local Talent

So after some unspoken prodding, my good friend Matt Tucker has encouraged me to start blogging more. So once again I guess I will. You see, I haven't been able to blog to much about fishing because I have been working so much. My hometown was devastated by an EF-5 tornado this may and as a contractor to the electric utility I was extremely busy. Luckily my house wasn't touched by the tornado, but my work warehouse was a complete loss. I have recently met the girl of my dreams (our second date was a trip to the NFoW where she caught her first rainbow ever and first trout on a fly rod. I have also since bought her a pair of waders and boots so she can accompany me on fishing adventures). So back to the main part of my blog...Tucker wanted to showcase some of the local talent we have in the Missouri Ozarks and I figured since he mentioned myself, along with some of my best friends, I ought to start updating my blog some more. So thank you tucker for giving me some motivation to update my blog more often!!

SE Regional results 2011, Nantahala River, NC

Team USA posted two perfect scores in its sweep of the comp. Randy Hanner and Anthony Naranja tied with 4 placing points apiece. Kurt Finlayson and Josh Stephens finished 3rd and 4th respectively.

It was great to make it back down to this part of the US and I am glad to be coming back for Nationals in May.

The Next Generation

My good friend and head guide for River of Life Farms on the North Fork of the White River in Dora missouri has put together this awesome video of his boys fishing.

a new begining

So with a little big of coaxing from a good friend of mine, I have decided to start writing on my blog again.

I am currently preparing for 2 Regional Tournaments for Fly Fishing Team USA. The next comp is next week in Andrews, NC on the Nantahala River. I have been snowed into my apartment for the last 10 days only getting out to get food and supplies to last the great Snowpocalypse of 2011. I have tied umpteen dozen flies in preparation for it and the next two. State College, PA and then the National Fly Fishing Championships back on the same rivers in NC as well as a few other venues.
