As a devoted fly fisherman and fly tier, Greg appreciates any time he can find to wade the streams and saltwater flats in South Carolina. Fly fishing has afforded Greg the opportunity to travel the globe, and his love of angling has encouraged him to experience incredible cultures and awe-inspiring natural beauty. Greg’s passion for fly fishing has translated to a commitment to preserving his local coastal and coldwater fisheries. Greg is a former President of the Saluda River Chapter of Trout Unlimited. He continues to serve on the SRTU Board of Directors and he currently serves as the Vice-Chairman of the South Carolina State Council for Trout Unlimited.
