Born and raised on a farm in Perry County Pennsylvania in 1967, Eric tied his first fly and began his journey as a fly fisherman at the young age of 13. Passionately fueled by the inspirational writings of Ray Bergman in his classic novel, "Trout"; Eric set out on his bike to find such a fish to fulfill the spectacular visions instilled in him by his readings. Little did he realize that same summer on a quiet afternoon he was about to fulfill those dreams. In an undisturbed and lonely stream, Eric found two large trout which would lead to a lifetime of excitement, exploration, and discovery.


     Though these trout held a place of pride in his heart, Eric soon learned that not all good things come without a cost. But what would the cost be? Eric entered one of his trout into a big fish contest held by the local newspaper. He was ignorant to the damage sharing the location of his catch would bring. A once untouched population of trout was overwhelmed by stock fish, curtesy to his revelation of knowledge. He witnessed firsthand the adverse, crippling effects this interference had on his beloved trout. As a result of his lessons, Eric has fished in silence. He has fished in silence over the course of thirty plus years where his experiences have molded him into not only the fisherman, but also the conservationist he is today.


To Eric's dismay, the age of technology has lifted the veil once concealing the streams he considers his home. Due to the internet, cell phones, and callous disregard for most things in nature, word has begun to spread faster than can be covered. How long before these sanctuaries will be made stock streams too? Eyes see, ears listen, and the threat of upsetting the natural population established over the decades grows near.
