Chesapeake Bay of Virginia - Saltwater Fly Fishing & Light Tackle Fishing

A Modern Waterman


At 15 months of age, I began what has become a life-long ambition – fishing!  Since that time, I have developed a love for fly and light tackle fishing on the waters of Virginia's Chesapeake Bay.  Much of my childhood was spent exploring the wonders of this unique estuary.  I continued to gain an understanding of the Chesapeake ecosystem in college through studies in marine and environmental science.  Upon graduation from Old Dominion University, I returned home to the Middle Peninsula to start my career as a fishing guide.  Now after nearly two decades in the business, I still cherish the ability to share this magnificent area with fellow anglers.
