Everyone who knows Andy will tell you he is a great guy. Be sure to ask him about his newest hobby (hunting). Andy is one of the only people I know dedicated enough to the outdoor sports that he will to get up in the middle of the night after bartending until 2 am to be the first one on the river or in the hunting blind. Let’s just say the trout are in a lot more danger than the ducks!
Andy has a good eye for spotting fish and an enthusiastic approach to fly fishing. He will work as hard as possible to make sure that you have a great time while you are chasing trout.
When you spend the day with Andy you will undoubtedly learn a lot about fly fishing on our local waters. But even more importantly, you will have a great time!
