A lot of the work we do for Redhorse focuses on birds, insects, plants or environmental topics. But the activity that started it all — the reason I write about nature and wildlife — is fishing. And specifically, I’ve been obsessed with fly fishing since I was about 12 years old.
Before I moved back to Ohio, I founded a fly fishing blog in Oregon and wrote for The Fly Fish Journal. I had big plans to start a Lake Erie fly fishing blog, but I found that with three kids, I just wasn’t fishing enough to fill a website with content. Fast forward three years, and I’ve met up with two conservation minded anglers and convinced my artist-collaborator David Wilson to start fly fishing.
So here we are, with Floodplains. Check it out and especially David’s great artwork below.
I’ll be tying flies and talking Redhorse and Floodplains at the North Coast Fly Fishing Expo 2016 on Jan 30th in Brecksville.
