I was born in 1954 at williamsport pennsylvania. I began fishing in the sixties and became fascinated by how to get rid of ants in my house the television program “the american sportsman” when it came into being. This program often featured lee wulff and curt gowdy fly how to get rid of ants in my house fishing all over north america. My young mind was indelibly etched with images of atlantic how to get rid of ants in my house and pacific silver salmon cartwheeling through the air when they how to get rid of ants in my house were hooked by a fly. At my young age I could not really conceive of how to get rid of ants in my house exactly how far I was from alaska or newfoundland where how to get rid of ants in my house those shows had been taped but I knew I wanted how to get rid of ants in my house to go. Fishing was a fascination, a dream and I had rather humble beginnings at it. I started fishing when I was eight years old in how to get rid of ants in my house the west branch of the susquehanna river with a throw how to get rid of ants in my house line and used stones as sinkers with red worms for how to get rid of ants in my house bait. A throw line (if you’ve never seen one used) works along the same principal as the sling that david how to get rid of ants in my house used on goliath. The difference is that the axis of the spinning rock how to get rid of ants in my house is on a vertical plane and the stone has a how to get rid of ants in my house fishing line attached. By the time I was twelve I owned a spin how to get rid of ants in my house casting rod and reel. My father was an amateur naturalist and a geology buff how to get rid of ants in my house but not a fisherman. After I was confirmed by our local YMCA as a how to get rid of ants in my house ‘shark’ in the swimming classes I was permitted to join my how to get rid of ants in my house neighborhood friend and his father on a trip to a how to get rid of ants in my house trout stream. I caught a stocked rainbow on my first cast, and like that fish I was hooked.

By the time I turned fourteen I had a fly how to get rid of ants in my house tying kit and a 1968 entry level ike walton solid how to get rid of ants in my house fiberglass rod & south bend #1200 reel with level line. My father had passed away and fishing time had become how to get rid of ants in my house even more important for me. My sister’s employer, C.W. ‘bill’ O’connor, a prominent angler, and the owner of “E. Hillie’s angler’s supply house” of williamsport pa. Became my fly tying mentor. It is to him that I owe my tying skills. Bill taught me how to create a good wing whether how to get rid of ants in my house it were quill for a dry fly, saddle feathers for a streamer, or marrying swan, turkey, and pheasant for the wing of a classic salmon fly. He always had time for me. It was from him that I learned how to select how to get rid of ants in my house the best when I was shopping for materials for tying. I enjoyed tying feather wing streamers because they set me how to get rid of ants in my house apart from anyone I knew. Other fishermen I came to know avoided them as being how to get rid of ants in my house too difficult to tie. They acknowledged that streamers were said to be quite effective how to get rid of ants in my house but most didn’t tie any. I eventually adopted the streamer as more than a “default fly” to use when other means of catching fish failed. I made streamer fishing my primary plan and only changed how to get rid of ants in my house strategy when the rising fish made it obvious that dry how to get rid of ants in my house fly fishing was certainly at hand. My success with the “big wets” has been great and I continue tying and fishing them how to get rid of ants in my house even here in alaska where I catch trout, char, grayling and pacific silver salmon on them.

Like my childhood inspiration the late mr. Wulff, I have traveled and fished from the far northwest shores how to get rid of ants in my house of newfoundland to the gulf of mexico, from the great lakes to the rocky mountains and finally how to get rid of ants in my house here to alaska. I have spent a lifetime fishing, floating, and walking beside the waters of this continent. I don’t quote many people but john denver could have been how to get rid of ants in my house talking about being alone on a river when he wrote; "you can talk to god and listen to the casual how to get rid of ants in my house reply".
