I was born in Dalton, Ga., and now reside with my wife of 45 years in Winston Ga. I retired 5 years ago from J&J Industries, a carpet manufacturing company in Dalton, GA where I held a number of sales positions during my career.
As a Vietnam War veteran (class of 67), I have become most interested in the Healing Waters Project for Wounded Warriors and I applaud Trout Unlimited, Kenny Simmons at Frog Hollow Fly Fishing and others who are attempting help those who have served. The attitude today toward us is much different than it was when I returned home.
I was an avid golfer for many years. As the result of Parkinson’s Disease, I had to give up that sport. In trying to find another hobby, I found a love in wood crafting. So, little by little, I have added tools to my shop in the basement of my home and that’s where I spend most of my time now!
I love to fish and hunt with my son who is my best friend. Our roles have changed in the last few years, he now ties my flies on and I get to lose them. Although I do not tie, Jason, my son, does and has been most helpful in designing, changing and making a desk that is not only aesthetically attractive but also functional. I also have three grandsons (and a granddaughter) who I would love to see develop a love for fishing and possibly this same love for wood crafting.
Hope to see you on the tail waters, “Tie One On”
