Mr. James Edwin Gunn
About me: 
I grew up in Nashville, TN but my family is from Asheville, NC where I first learned how to fly fish when I was 6 years old. My Grandfather (Big Daddy) taught me the old school way...in the front yard of his fishing cabin using a timer which was clapping his hands. He told me that I was not allowed in the stream until I knew how to cast properly so I wouldn't disgrace the trout! Thanks to Big Daddy, I now have been fishing for almost 35 years. In December of 2015, I moved to Glenwood Springs, Colorado which has allowed me to pursue my love for the outdoors including fly fishing, backpacking and trail running. I am very grateful to have 3 gold medal rivers within 30 minutes of where I live!!
