*About Steve Zweber
I have enjoyed the pleasure of being involved in the
sport of fly fishing for the past 27 years, the first
fish I ever caught was on a fly rod and I never
learned to fish any other way!
I was introduced to the fly rod in a outdoor skills
classes offered in high school and was soon to be seen
fishing the streams and lakes in the local Cascade
mountains. I started tying flies a few years later
when I figured out that it was less painful to snag
one of my own creations in the trees. The majority
of my fishing is done for trout in my home state with
vacations each year taken with fly fishing destinations
in mind. I am still learning all I can about our sport,
working on my casting skills...trying to tie that killer
fly...find that fish of a lifetime...and I never tire of
the excitement and joy that each day of fishing brings
to me. In the future I will be trying my hand at rod
building and this winter I hope to start steelhead fishing
in the local waters.
I also enjoy teaching the joys of our sport to friends
and family, I get some of my greatest enjoyment watching
someone I have helped, catch a fish, knowing that not only is
the fish hooked but they are too.
