Professional Highlights:

Working with his grandfather, Bobby started helping at sport and fly shows when he was but nine years of age. He wisely built on those experiences and now does fly casting demonstrations for trade shows, Fly Fishing Federation and Trout Unlimited. Bobby also gives private and group lessons. He is a member of American Casting Association (ACA) and the St. Paul Casting Club. In addition, he has guided for trout on GWN Flint Trail and steelhead in the Great Lakes. Furthermore, he builds rods, ties flies, and studied art in college. Seems to us this 'art thing' has spilled over into everything Bobby does.
