Eric's Bio

I was born and raised in Buck County, PA, and graduated from St. Anselm's College in New Hampshire in 2014, where I majored in Criminal Justice and played hockey.  I began fishing in both fresh and saltwater in Pennsylvania and New Jersey with my dad using conventional tackle about as soon as I was able to walk.  It was on a trip to Wyoming when I got hooked on fly fishing. Since then, I have been tying flies and chasing all sorts of species with a fly rod, both close to home and far away. I am lucky to be able to frequently fish for trout, bass, panfish, stripers, and bluefish throughout the Tri-State area.  When time and money allow, I also love fishing and exploring new and distant locations, particularly in the American West. When not fishing or tying flies, I enjoy other outdoor activities, spending time with family and friends, and recently, learning to play the piano.
