Tom comes from the upper region of South Carolina. He is an electrical engineer at the INL where he has worked for 32 years. He has been blessed to fish some of the premier streams in the world. These include the Eglington, Brooks, Matura, Bow, and Naknek. However, the local rivers and lakes of Idaho and Montana offer some of the most fascinating opportunities. He will gladly share some of the simple patterns and techniques that have proven very effective for him and his wife, Susan. The audience can express interest in whether they would like to see an 8” articulated leach or a #24 baetis. Typically, Susan and Tom fish #16s to #24s on local waters.
