Bob is a Maine native whose passion for the outdoors dates back to his early childhood years growing up on a farm in Poland, ME. Free time was spent on nearby streams and lakes or in the woods. Fly fishing became a pursuit in his high school years, along with alpine skiing, which lead to a career in ski coaching with an 8 year stint with the U.S. Ski Team. Bob resides in Bethel where he is an active member of the local chapter of Trout Unlimited. He spends his free time primarily on the Androscoggin River and over the last 7 years has gained an intimate knowledge of the fishery.
Laurin began fly fishing and tying at age 9. Growing up fishing the small streams and dead waters of Northern Maine, Laurin has developed strong respect and appreciation for the outdoors. Laurin now lives in Bethel with his wife and two daughters. He has been fortunate to have had the time and opportunity to explore the local fisheries. Laurin is passionate about fly fishing, eager to introduce others to the sport, and driven to advance his understanding through continued days on the water and the shared knowledge of those in similar pursuits.
