The Freestone Drifter is a blog that I'll try to update weekly. This blog will consist of talking about fly fishing techniques, conservation efforts, the life of an avid fly fisherman, fly fishing gear reviews, fly tying, and many more fly fishing related topics. I've spent the last 12 years of my life learning as much as I can about fly fishing. From learning from famous guides, to listening to and reading just about everything fly fishing related, and spending countless (blessed) hours on the water I've learned a lot in this time.
Although not a full time job for me, I consider myself a professional in the fly fishing industry with a lot still left to learn. Many old timers say that they love fly fishing because you never stop learning. You can think you have it all figured out and then things happen to you that seem to make no sense. Catch 25 trout in four hours one day, go back the next and get completely skunked. It doesn't seem likely, but it's happened to the best of us. I still have a lifetime left of learning ahead of me, but I doubt that will even be enough. Join the adventure with me as I continue to live the life of a passionate, almost obsessed, fly fisherman.
