Art comes to the DMV by way of Cleveland, Ohio where he learned to fly fish at a very young age. Although he cut his teeth fishing for lake run steelhead and smallmouth in the Midwest, he is also an accomplished trout angler. Art works as the Store Manager for the Orvis company in Arlington VA, and has spent the better part of the last decade teaching thousands of people to cast a fly rod. When he’s not out fishing the Potomac or on of the nearby trout streams, you can find Art giving casting lessons at Fletchers Boathouse, playing pickup basketball in Arlington, or burning things in the kitchen!
