After a youth spent chasing catfish and bass in Ohio's warmwater lakes, David discovered fly fishing and at this point....can't get the hook out!
Stepping away from a successful career as a journalist and magazine editor, he chose to pursue fly fishing and guiding full-time in order to share his passion for the sport with others. Needless to say, he's thrilled to be working at one of the largest fly fishing outfitters in the U.S.
A veteran of the U.S. Navy, he has thrown streamers at big Bow River Rainbows, hiked into burn areas to find innocent brook trout, and now pursues big Muskie and Pike in North Central Ohio. He has also become quite proficient on our home river..the Mad.
We are thrilled to have David on staff here at MRO and will be utilizing his many talents including his writing skills on our blogs and social media. He will be working in the shop as well as guiding on the the Mad River, for Largemouth Bass in Southeastern Ohio, and teaching a few classes here and there.
