I was a practicing orthopedic surgeon in the valley for 32yrs. and retired 2yrs ago. I began fly fishing 10 years ago and quickly tried to learn as much as I could. 3 years ago I became a certified casting instructor with the FFF. I’ve read, studied and fished with some of the current experts in the sport. Fishing has taken me to Montana, California, Florida, Virginia, Wyoming, The Keys, Bahama’s, Cuba, Belize and Mexico. I’m currently working with the AFC casters on Wednesdays, Wounded Warriors, Boy Scouts and I have been the Education Chairman for DFC this past year.
