Following the dream, one river at a time.


Born in Saranac Lake, NY, in the heart of the Adirondack park, I was always an ‘outdoor’ child. Since the age of seven, when I was handed my first fly rod by my dad, I have been addicted to the sport of fly fishing. My grandpa James Underwood, has also added to my obsession, giving me over 60 years of his Fly Fishing knowledge, including how to tie flies. The sport is no longer a hobby… it is a part of me and I often find myself wondering where I would be without it.  Now at the University of Montana, I am chasing my dream of fly fishing some of the greatest streams in the United States and becoming a fisheries biologist along the way. I have already experienced countless adventures in the wilderness of Montana as well as other places. I hope you enjoy these stories of my adventures in life.

    Hi Eric,
    I thank you for your thoughtful letter and the story of Sullivan’s Net. I enjoyed it and share it with my friends.
    My friend Dayle tried to find it on the web, but evidently you have taken that particular one off already.
    Have a joyous Holiday Season.
    Don’t forget your net.
