Todd grew up on a farm in Melba, Idaho and learned at age nine to fly fish from his grandfather. He spent almost every summer as a kid with his aunt and uncle in Hamilton, Montana on the banks of the Bitterroot River. Here he fell in love with Rocky Mountain fly fishing. Todd served his country with the Marines; beginning soon after high school. He is a veteran of the Gulf War, Somalia, and the L.A. Riots. Todd returned to Idaho after his service and took a guiding job for Headwater Outfitters in Ketchum, Idaho. Years ago Todd spent two years managing the fishing department at Sportsman’s Warehouse in Idaho Falls where he was responsible for one million dollars in inventory. Next he managed at South Fork Outfitters. Having worked for Mile Lawson at Henry’s Fork Anglers for over a decade is a dream come true and gives Todd further detailed expertise on fishing not only the Henry’s Fork but all quality regional waters. This array of experience, along with many years as a fly tier, make Todd able to demonstrate and suggest flies for all seasons on local waters. He is in demand to demonstrate his fly tying skills and to present his experiences on regional waters at fly-fishing events throughout the country. During his demo Todd will surely have new patterns since his last demo at Jimmy’s in 2015.
