John has been in the fly fishing industry for over 35 years. He has tied flies for over 50 years and still loves it as much as when he started. He was the owner of Arizona Flyfishing for 12 years and now is selling his innovative flies and materials online at www.azflyfishing.net. He also co authored the book, Arizona Trout Streams and Their Hatches and is the founder and current president of the White Mountain Lakes Foundation, a non profit organization formed to help improve trout fishing in Arizona’s high country.
He has fished extensively in the West targeting trout and bass but loves to hit the Baja every year for whatever species is running. He also loves chasing steelhead on the West Coast as well as back on the Great lakes tributaries.
His flies and materials have proven their worth on all species of fish from stillwaters to moving waters, big or small. He is constantly searching for new materials and is adding new tying products to his line of materials on a consistent basis. Look for his “Arizona” products at your local fly shops.
