Tom is a native Charlottean who grew up fishing Lake Wylie with his father. Tom's dad, who was born in Meatcamp, Watauga County, introduced Tom to trout fishing on the Watauga River when he was in 12 years old. A lifelong flyfisherman, it has been a passion throughout his life. Joining Rocky River Trout Unlimited was a profound change and led to his being chapter President for two years in 2013 and 2014. A professional advertising photographer, Tom was the head of the advertising photography for Belk Inc, where he worked for twenty five years. Currently retired and continuing to tie flies commercially with several successful personal fly patterns, he fishes at every opportunity. Tom's favorite waters are the Davidson, the Madison, and any water in Yellowstone National Park.
