I'm excited that my fly, "Tissa's Strength" is featured in the book... America's Favorite Flies! The book has more than 235 contributors and 656 pages of oversized color photographs of special flies. It's special because 100% the profits are going to the James River Association and the Native Fish Society - organizations that make our fisheries and waters healthier.

I had a great opportunity to participate in this book... "Reflections from 100 Fly Fishers". I'm Fly Fisher #061... I just ordered my copy! A special thanks to 99 other guides/fly fishers that gave their time for this book. It's special because ALL the proceeds are going to Project Healing Waters and Casting for Recovery.

In April 2022, I was inducted into the New York State Outdoorsmen Hall of Fame, honoring sportsmen and women who have made a significant contribution to conservation or preserving the outdoor heritage. I was awarded this prestigious award for my volunteer work with women, veterans and volunteerism in fly fishing.
In February, 2021 I was given the Conservationist of the Year award by the NY chapter of the American Fisheries Society for my significant involvement and accomplishments by an individual for my volunteer work to bring women and diversity to the fisheries in NY.
On March 16th, 2017 I was awarded the 2018 New York Person of the Year by NY Outdoor News on behalf of the sportsmen and women of New York. Thank you Outdoor News for this great honor!
