Mike grew up and lived in Maine for 26 years. For as long as he can remember he has been fishing for brook trout in the back country of Maine. When Mike was about 14 years old he got his first fly rod and fly tying kit. Immediately he was hooked for life. Almost always Mike fished for brook trout but it wasn't until he went to Montana in 2005, that he realized what his favorite fish was. The brown trout. Hard fighting and elusive, he was captivated by them. In 2012 he moved to northern New Mexico where he currently resides. His stomping grounds include the San Juan River, and the Animas River. His fly tying style mixes classic New England, and western styles. From standard dries, to articulated streamers and midges. Mike's favorites have to be nymphs, Particularly stoneflies. Stoneflies are big, fun to tie, and are a favorite of trout in most rivers in the USA. Mike almost always have one on his nymph rod. Mike is a new addition to the Steelie Bros Fly Company and is happy to bring his expertise as an official Steelie Bros fly tyer.
