Chad Walz – President
Having his masters degree in Aquatic Chemical Ecology, Chad has a natural love of all aquatic life. He has grown up fishing in New Hampshire, and started fly fishing in 2002. Chad loves swinging flies for trout, bass and the occasional carp.
A retired radiologist, Barry has been fly fishing since 1965 and started fly tying around 1969. Barry began making bamboo fly rods in 1998 while living in the Portland, OR area. After retiring to Vermont, his output has been more brisk, as he has been making and selling rods seriously since 2006. Barry loves tropical fishing but anything that will take a fly will get his attention.
