Meet The Staff: Andy Ellis

TCO Reading: Andy Ellis 

When did you start working at TCO?

Andy started working at TCO the fall of 2019. Andy immediately started making huge improvements to the Reading location like installing a much-needed coffee machine and saying water like "wader" charming both customers and co-workers alike. 

What is your favorite place you have fly fished? (Near or Far)

That's a tough one, but what I keep going back to are the small blue line streams in Western Maryland and West Virginia for those cute little Brookies...trails off in thought singing Country Roads... 

What music is being played on your way to the stream? 

Certainly not the Dead, sorry Tony...Usually Wu-Tang Clan. It's for the children. 

Besides fly fishing, what other outdoor activities do you enjoy?

I am also known to pedal bikes from one spot to the another, then back again. However, my true secondary outdoor passion to fly fishing would have to be drinking beers outside before, during, and after fly fishing. 

Andy's Bio

Andy was born to his father's house in the great city of Baltimore. Immediately after there was much celebration and countless parades.  Andy was expected to achieve great things for all of humankind, that is until he discovered fly fishing...All hope was quickly lost in Andy and the great discoveries he would bring to the world. Andy pursued his passion for fly fishing like all other teenagers woold, becoming easily distracted by Wine, women, and song. Despite these countless distractions Andy always came back to fishing, mostly so he could post mediocre fish pictures to his social media accounts. Andy has continued fly fishing year after year, becoming only slightly better over time...He now feeds more flies to trout throughout the Mid-Atlantic then trees most of the time, always room for improvement, right?
