Permanent Washington resident for 32 years, fishing since i could walk with my father. I started heavily fishing for salmon about 18 years ago and steelhead about 15 years ago. Pinning caught my eyes many years ago and i finally pulled the trigger about 5 years ago and bought my Paragon from Danny Colville and was fortunate enouph to be on the east coast for work and made the trip up to fish, learn and pick up my gear from him at his shop. Now i own a handful of CPR reels that i use from Canada to southern WA, favorite being my leviathan. Now if you find me throwing a float it will be connected to my pin, But hopefuly you dont find me.
