Great Lakes Spey Guru

Favorite Fish:  Great Lakes Steelhead

Paul grew up fly fishing on the waters of upstate New York. Not long after, he discovered the Salmon River and Lake Ontario Tributaries and became addicted to chasing steelhead with a spey rod back in the early 90s.

Paul has been an instructor at the Orvis Spey Casting School in the Gaspe, Quebec. He now operates his own guide service on the Salmon River in Pulaski New York and the Ausable in Lake Placid, New York. In Paul’s free time he enjoys spending time with his family, his three Mastiffs, fly tying and a cold IPA.
