Justin Hardesty first picked up a fly rod around the same time he was learning how to ride a bike. He grew up casting poppers for bass but quickly grew to love wild native brook trout when his grandfather brought him to some headwater streams near Rangeley, Maine. His grandmother devoted her life to protecting vulnerable watersheds, something that stuck with him. Now, Justin lives, works, plays in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. He can be found on small mountain streams with his personal fishing guide - his cattle dog, Ahna. He can be reached at email@example.com.
