He is an avid fly fisherman with a particular interest in small stream fishing; having spent much of his life in pursuit of trout in the Smokey Mountains and Kentucky streams. Brad served as Project Superintendent and assisted in the design and construction of Hatchery Creek; which gave him the unique opportunity to meld his perspective on a trout’s ecosystem with his career. He has a particular interest in teaching the technical skills required for successful angling and currently offers guided trips on Hatchery Creek and other small streams around the state. One of Brad’s true passions is to help orthers become better anglers.
