Patient | Professional | Experienced - Fly Fishing and Dog Training in the Lake Placid Region

Shortly after learning to walk, I started fishing the waters of the Adirondacks and by the age of 11 had started fly fishing and fly tying.  (Which led to pandemonium when I released a jar of aquatic insects - aka fish food - in my 5th grade classroom!)  This deeply rooted love for the sporting world and a strong love for animals led to my interest in training dogs with a special fondness for hunting dogs. 


I consider myself blessed to have turned my passion for fly fishing and dog training into a profession. To protect this lifestyle for generations to come, I am deeply committed to the conservation of our resources.  


With 25 years in the outfitting business behind me, I have had the pleasure of sharing adventures with people of all ages from all walks of life.  Consider this a personal invitation to join me for the highest quality outdoor adventures on our wonderful waters or for an enlightening meeting of both  k9 and human minds.
