I became interested in radio in the 60's listening to my Dad's Shortwave Radio. To further fuel the fire we built a Heathkit Shortwave Radio together. Licensed in 1976 with the help of the Triple States Radio Amateur Club (TSRAC) while living in one of either Martins Ferry, Belmont or St. Clairsville, Ohio for our time in Eastern Ohio until moving to Granville, Ohio.

Fly Fishing - Main picture above is an Alaskan Silver Salmon from our recent trip to the great state of Alaska! I flew into this river on a DeHavilland Beaver float plane with 4 other folks, (2 guys, 1 girl and the guide packing a shotgun), we then hiked about 2 miles to where the fish and bears hang out. It was about 20 air miles from Juneau, AK. We all caught a lot of Salmon, both Pink & Silver.

Pictured below are Rainbow Trout caught in Ohio. Called Steelhead, due to being born in the river then migrating to Lake Erie for 2-3 years before returning to their birth river. Caught on egg pattern fly, 4x Tippet, 6.8 # test on an 8 wt fly rod.
