Tyler was first introduced to fly fishing as a boy by his father, trolling for native brook trout in northern Maine. After being away from the sport for more than a decade, Tyler finally picked a 5 wt. back up and quickly realized what he’d been missing. Tyler’s passion for fly fishing continues to grow, with most of his free time now being spent either at the vise, chasing freshwater species around his home west of Boston, or exploring the Rhode Island and Massachusetts coasts in search of striped bass, bluefish, and albies.
Tyler received his BA, with honors, from Trinity College in Hartford, CT and his JD, Cum Laude, from Suffolk University Law School in Boston, MA. Born in Vermont, and raised in Rhode Island, Tyler now lives in Massachusetts with his wife Molly, son Teddy, and daughter Lily.
