As the author of the decade leading fly fishing blog Trout Underground, Tom believes that fishing is not about measuring the experience but instead of about having fun. As a staunch environmentalist, he brings to the Yobi Community thought leadership on environmental and access issues facing us today.

Nice blog on the Phillipson re-do.....I found a sad Power-Pakt at a garage sale (and should have been arrested for what I paid) and had it redone.....A collector may look down his nose at it,but new varnish and guides make it a sweet stick....
