I grew up in rural northeastern Pennsylvania, moving to Vermont in 1998. Soon finding the fishing to be excellent, I began to devote many hours to exploring local waters primarily for trout, but also bass and pike and other species. I really enjoy the places that chasing fish take me and always find something to learn on the slow and/or hard days. When not guiding or doing some personal fishing or tying flies, I work as a carpenter.
Over a dozen years ago, after the birth of her fourth child Chris started kayaking. She would throw her boat on the car, head down to the Otter Creek or the flooded flats, and be back in less than two hours a rejuvenated person. She's been hooked ever since. Ratty in the Wind in the Willows summed it up best-"There is nothing worth doing half as much as simply messing around in boats."
