Hi, I’m Dave.

I know that are barriers to getting started fly fishing:  time, money, resources, instruction!

All valid points but want you to know that those are all easily handled with the right mentor.

I have taught people how to fly fish since I was a young kid in my dad’s fly shop.  I took a break with my own life along the way and back now with a couple of young kids of my own.

If you are interested in starting fly fishing or want to expand on your skills – this is the place for you!

If you would like to discover fly tying – I have you totally covered with step x step guides and courses.

If you are here to catch a steeelhead on a fly – That’s what I live for.

Connect with me and let’s have some fun!

For steelhead, it can be challenging – There is no question about that.  I have been in those steelhead runs for hours on end waiting for the first pull of a powerful fish.  That first tug, tip or tap.  That little indication that you are doing something right.

It’s addicting.

I’ve been fly fishing for trout and steelhead and trout for most of my life.  I grew up around a fly fishing shop and have been guiding for about as long as I could row a boat.

Now that I’ve connected with tools to bring this information online, I am trying to be that virtual guide for you.  Virtual?? I know, not sure if that’s the right word?

Why should you read this site?

The answer is simple – Sharing the techniques and tools I’ve learned for trout and steelhead fly fishing is my passion.  You will see shortly, that there won’t be anything left out.  I hope you can handle some personal stories, because I think they will help you.

I want to connect with you!

You will be able to ask me questions and connect with me.  In fact, just click this link and you can send me an email directly.  Let me know what you’re struggling with today.

Finding fish, making a good cast and putting in the time until your first hookup are all big humps to get over.  Maybe you have been trout fishing for years, but want to try steelheading?  Maybe you have been a gear fisherman, but want a new challenge?  Maybe you have never cast a fly rod, but are interested in jumping into it?

In either case, I will connect you with the resources you need to get started today.  The best way to assure you don’t miss any of the tips and tools, is to join the newsletter.
