H, correct on both counts.
Possibly I am a geek......  :z8
I'm going to do one more then leave it for someone else to set a question or three  :z4

So.... who am I :?

I'm one of the most successful casters and instructors ever to come out of the USA, but I'm not that well known in the UK by the majority of anglers unless you happen to own a rod I had a hand in developing.
My competition casting history with both single & double handed fly rods stretches back over 5 decades and I have successfully represented my country at world championship events at home but also in Europe, Japan and South Africa.
I'm probably best known to most as a rod designer and I have been with the same company since its inception.


If I add any more to this, it'll be too easy - although I expect this will be picked up quickly :!
