Specialty: Fishing Hard baits and Tying flies
Favorite Waters to Fish: Local Rivers and Lakes
Favorite Bait/Tackle: Jerk-bait and Flies

Just a local river rat from Northern N.S. Canada, who can't wait till his grandkids are old enough to be taught this great sport of fishing. Love fishing, hunting and the outdoors, tying flies, and making some of my own gear. Making fishing and fly tying videos is another hobby of mine. Now that I was chosen as one of the top ambassadors on this great site, I can only hope that one of my tips on fishing is used by some future angler to bring in that big boy we all dream about...

"SOME ARE HAUNTED BY THE FISH THAT GOT AWAY, I QUIETLY PLOT MY REVENGE" … FISH-ON!
