I grew up in the woods, learning hunting and fly fishing in CT. With my grandfather as my mentor, an avid outdoorsmen and CT State Park constable I honed my trout fly fishing skills. I spent a season in SW Alaska which opened opportunity to SW Montana and its endless wild trout streams. Setting down roots in Sheridan, where my wife Theresa and I raise our two children and Yellow Labrador named Maggie.

Great day on the Big Hole with Troy. Great fishing, great company, and lunch to boot!  Excellent overall.

Thank you for the kind words Darryl. Always a good day when you can get a father and son together on the water.
Look forward to doing it again soon!

2015 was the 16th year I fished with Mike Stack and I’ll be back in March for another early spring trip. Last year was my best, 92 trout in 3 days with a stretch of 17 straight casts with a trout landed. Mike is an excellent teacher, teaching my son, my wife and most recently my son-in-law, giving me time to fish. I have come to love SW Montana rivers and the early spring experience with few other fishermen is just right.
I’d send along photos of the 2015 trip, but my waterproof camera bounced over the side of the boat. It was waterproof not sink proof.
