I didn’t find Fly Fishing until I was a little older. I even grew up along the banks of the Middle Provo river, yet never wet a line. My older brothers loved going to the local pond and fishing with bait, and so I tagged along. After years of doing this, I convinced myself that fishing was boring and I didn’t care for it. I found myself working in construction during the downturn of the economy back in 2007-2008. I was working with Gilbert and we found ourselves with days of little work. This is when Gil was able to convince me to go fly fishing with him. I told him fishing was boring and I didn’t have any interest, but he convinced me anyway!!! Other than getting married or having kids, this may have been the best decision I have ever made! It has taken over my life. I have a hard time driving next to a river without being distracted. If you ever find me day dreaming, i’m most likely analyzing our latest fishing experience and how I could have made it better. It may even be about the next fly recipe I am working on!
I enjoy tying flies. Tying flies has enhanced my fly fishing experience as I can tailor my flies to the exact conditions or technique I am using. I encourage you to take a look at our fly fishing videos in hopes that it will help you take that step and learn how to tie flies!
