I am a native Oregonian, born and raised here in the Willamette Valley, and have been fishing for as long as I've been walking. I have a profound knowledge of the local industry and what it takes to put fish in the boat. I consider myself an "old school" fisherman, and hold to the values that I was taught by my father, and my grandfather... respect for others, respect for God's creations and providing food for our families. One of my goals is to bring a product to the table that was a life changing event for me as a steelhead fisherman. I want to share this gift that was shared with me and want to better my fellow fishermen in pursuing a lifelong sport of steelhead fishing and trout fishing.
