Living on the fringe of the Catskills has allowed me to meet, become good friends with, and learn firsthand from many of the legendary tyers of the area,including Art Flick, Harry and Elsie Darbee, The Dette's, Lee Wulff, and many others. Since then I've been involved with Trout Unlimited, The Federation of Fly Fishers, United Fly Tyers, The Catskill Fly Fishing Center and Museum, and several Fly Fishing Shows. I've tied flies commercially for years, finally moving toward more custom tying and teaching. Teaching both fly tying and fly fishing has become an important part of my off stream fishing life, having been an instructor with the Wulff Fly Fishing School for the last 30 years.
An early interest in the making of bamboo fly rods allowed me the privilege of contributing the technical drawings for "A Master' Guide To Building A Bamboo Fly Rod", by Everett Garrison with Hoagy B. Carmichael. The Minonipi Wulff is a favorite fly designed for the big brook trout in Labrador. It was written up in an article entitled "The Wonderful Wulffs", by Dick Talleur in Fly Tyer magazine, the winter 1988 issue.
