I SPENT 10 YEARS WORKING for the National Wild Turkey Federation, first as a Regional Director, and finally as their first Director of Development. I then became Executive Director of the American Museum of Fly Fishing, a position I held for almost 7 years… making me the longest serving Director of that institution in its history.
I left the nonprofit world to become, happily, a self-employed carpenter/cabinet maker. I’m now retired and, while I still do a bit of woodworking, I mostly tie flies and fish for Atlantic salmon on the Miramichi River. My latest accomplishment is having 66 of my hairwing salmon flies in Mike Valla’s new book, Tying and Fishing Bucktails and Other Hairwings. I also serve on both the US and Canadian Boards of Directors of the Miramichi Salmon Association.
I have been fly fishing and fly tying for more than 35 years.
