Fly Fishing - Fly Tier - Hunting
I’ve been with D&H for almost 12 years. Despite growing up in Cincinnati, D&H opened up a whole new world for me. In the past 11 years I have learned a lot, gained many new experiences, and made great friends. I grew up hunting and have been fortunate enough to bird and big game hunt in many different states. After watching other dogs hunt for many years, I finally got my own several years ago and did most of the training myself. Anyone that visits the shop regularly is likely to meet her.
Q: A few pieces of favorite equipment/clothing?
A: I shoot a Fausti side by side 20 gauge with double triggers. I love the traditional feel and the versatility of this shotgun.
Q: How old do you have to be to learn to fly fish?
A: There isn’t really an age minimum. We’ve had 11 year olds that were great fishermen and adults that couldn’t pay attention. Almost anyone can learn to fly fish. It is not a “muscle” sport and isn’t nearly as complicated as it looks. Good teachers can shorten the learning curve immensely.
Q: Favorite Place to hunt/Fish?
A: Anywhere w/ game birds! Locally, Billy Gerwins’ Shags Run preserve is my home-away-from-home. I have great memories fishing at Upper Canyon Outfitters in Montana, bass fishing on the Elkhorn creek and rock-hopping in the Smoky’s. There are lots of places still on the bucket list.
