Andy has been fly fishing all over the world since 1970. Following his passion for fly fishing, Andy decided to walk away from his chosen profession of cosmetology and opened up Concord Outfitters in 1999. Equally proficient in both fresh and saltwater, Andy will say that his favorite place in the world to fish is the Lodgepole River in British Columbia. This is not to say that the fish in New Zealand, the Bahamas, Belize, Patagonia, Montana, etc… are any safer. Andy can be found guiding on local rivers year round and when he’s not guiding, he’s teaching Fly Fishing 101 courses out of the shop to help people young and old get into the sport or spearheading local stream restoration efforts. Need a casting lesson?… Andy’s your guy!
Wait, did I say “cosmetology”? I meant “construction”.
