Fly Fishing has become a passion of mine in the very short period of time. There is no substitute for the rush that comes from a tight line. Mountain Dog Angling is the ultimate culmination of friendship and brotherhood. Fly Fishing is something that people want to share with others. My goal in this brand is to connect people all over the world by the common thread that is a fish on.
Being outdoors and exploring the unknown is what brings me genuine happiness. Driving to remote rivers and gearing up my fly rod with my bestfriend's has become my passion. I am a firm believer that life is all about finding that one thing that gives you purpose, that drives you every single day. I am grateful I have found that in fly fishing. Mountian Dog Angling is the endless pursuit of tight lines and good vibes, the endless pursuit of fish on flies, the endless pursuit of exploration with your bestfriends. My hope is Mountain Dog Angling inspires people from all backgrounds to find that one thing that gives them purpose everday.
The wild adventure that comes with fly fishing is almost impossible to match. The feeling of a tight line is truly what we all live for. But, fly fishing is hard, and it's always going to be hard. I think that is what keeps me coming back. Just the never ending drive to gain knowledge and skill to become the best angler I can be. Exploring our beautiful world with my fly rod in hand
I went fly fishing for the first time with my father in law in Saratoga, Wyoming. On that first trip, I hooked him in the neck while casting, I fell out of the boat when I caught my first fish and discovered what it felt like to laugh and just enjoy the view. In my life, I have treasured watching my three boys grow up. I have seen them catch fly balls, catch touchdowns and catch fish. I am a father and a lawyer. I love my wife and my country. On the river, I am just a guy who carries his grandmother’s net and follows his sons’ lead, and frankly, that’s how I like it.
I am the "stray dog" of the team. Adam and I have been college roommates since freshman year and his family took me in after that. I could tell you all you'd like to know about Central Illinois Bass waters, but I was brand new to fly fishing when I met Bigs. I was drawn to the Western Rivers from the first time he spoke of the beautiful bows he had caught. Every time I have hit the river with this team I've become a better fisherman, and I struggle to find any better days better than wading a freestone river pursuing that tight line high.
