Member since November 2016 Ruskin, United States
Background
I have been involved in fishing all my life. For over 24 years I have been a fly fishing guide and a fly fishing outfitter. I own Baxter House Fly Fishing Outfitters and offer destination fly fishing trips in New York State and in the Tampa Bay area of Florida. From November through April I am chartering shallow water fishing trips in the beautiful estuary of Tampa Bay. I am also a regular at the Winter Fly Fishing and Fly Tying Shows. I regularly demonstrate fly tying techniques and gives seminars on topics pertaining to Fly Fishing. I am also a published writer with articles in many major publications. I have also had several appearances on television, working with Discovery Channel, CBS News, New York Department of Tourism, Discover America, On the Water TV, and more.
Techniques
My favorite way to chase game fish has always been with the fly rod. I enjoy every aspect from the designing of the flies to the challenges of fly casting. I also enjoy fishing light spin tackle with artificial lures.
