My name is Larry Swearingen and I now live in Fort Wayne, IN.
This is a photo of me visiting Tony Spezio in Flippin, AR, who got me started in bamboo rodmaking in 2003.
I am semi-retired, was fully retired until the economy went sour.
I fish locally for bass and bluegill, semi-locally for Steelhead on the St. Joseph river just north of Ft. Wayne, and Trout fishing in Michigan when I get the urge.
I won't turn up my nose at the occasional Pike either. All great fun on a bamboo fly rod.
