Brad’s first love is fly fishing. After years of fishing the Rockies for trout he realized the best, most hassle-free fly fishing was right outside his door on the warmer streams and rivers holding smallmouth bass and other great game fish in Minnesota.
Brad’s fished smallmouth for nearly forty years on some of the most hallowed waters in the Midwest and Canada. Now he prefers fishing smaller, overlooked sections of river near his home range of north central Minnesota.
Fly-fishing-smallmouth.com was created in 2003 as an informational resource for bass fly fishing. FlyBass.com was created in 2010 as an online store selling fly fishing equipment geared towards large gamefish.
Brad has fished most of the major rivers in the western mountain states, probed Caribbean flats and chased tarpon in south Florida’s backcountry.
But he’s always had a special affinity for the smallmouth bass.
He lives in rural Crosby, Minnesota with his wife Lisa and two black lab hunting dogs.
