Many years ago Jeff hosted a trip here to LOC as manager of the Yorktown, Illinois Orvis store. A couple weeks after he left here, he called us wondering if we needed another guide. Next thing you know, he quit his job with Orvis and moved out here. Just like that. Orvis’ loss and clearly LOC’s gain. Needless to say he really wanted to change his life. Jeff is smooth on the oars, a great instructor, great fly tyer, bona fide bug nut, and relies on each day’s success for his steady, optimistic outlook.
