New Bern, NC
From when I could remember I had a fishing rod in my hand. My uncle was the one that first had me fishing in the water fountain at my grandmas house. I grew up bass fishing until about two years ago where I found myself in Highlands, North Carolina with nothing to do. I booked a trip to FlyFish for the first time and after that day I was in love. A local in the shop told me about the youth team and their clinics so I attended the colarado one and have been going to them ever since. Before the team I didn’t have anything I was passionate about and the team gave me just that. I can’t tell you how many times everything was going wrong and I didn’t know what to do. Getting on the river brought peace to me and let me get a new prospective on the situations. Not only has Flyfishing given me somthing I’m passionate about, but it has also brought me some of the realest friends I will ever meet. I have met some people that I know will always be there for until the day we’re gone. They gave me a sense of confidence to be what I know I can be. The team took me in as a baby and guided me to becoming a man. No pun intended.
