TYPE OF FISHING THAT YOU DO AND SPECIES YOU TARGET MOST
I am a full time fly fishing guide. I guide in the saltwater offering clients walk and wade and boat trips fly fishing for striped bass, bluefish, false albacore, and fluke along the Jersey Shore. During April and May I offer clients guided fly fishing float trips in a McKenzie style drift boat for wild brown and rainbow trout on the Upper Delaware River system.

FISHING ACHIEVEMENTS
My greatest achievement is to have return clients or have clients crossover and try fly fishing for the first time. It’s also great to take anglers out of their comfort zone and have them try something new. Putting a 5wt dry fly rod in someone’s hand and floating down a picturesque river when they are used to throwing a 10wt rod standing in a big surf, and vice versa, always makes for a great day.
