BIO:

Henry has been pursuing striped bass on both fly and light tackle for over 30 years in both Saltwater and Freshwater. His reputation and knowledge precedes him as being a leader in the fly fishing and fly tying industry.

Henry currently guides on both Lake Sidney Lanier (north of Atlanta, GA) and Lake Allatoona (northwest of Atlanta, GA) for stripers and trophy spotted bass. He is an accomplished fly tier and outdoor writer as well. As an Umpqua Feather Merchants fly designer his flies are available at many fly shops around the United States as well as in the Orvis and LL Bean catalogue.

His flies, as well as the articles on how to tie them continue to appear in magazines such as American Angler, Eastern Fly Fishing, Fly Tyer, Flyfishing America, Angler Magazine and Fly Fisherman. Henry's name now also appears on the masthead of both American Angler and Angler Magazine as a contributing editor/writer.

Henry obtained his FFF certified casting instructor certificate back in the mid-nineties. He is well known for his many seminars on salt water fly fishing as well as fresh water fly fishing for striped bass, Kentucky spotted bass and carp.

He has appeared, as a guest, on a number of nationally televised outdoor shows (The Ford Outfitters, The Nuts and Bolts of Fishing, The Orvis Sporting Life, Growing Up Outdoors, The Reel Guys, One More Cast w/Shaw Grigsby and Oneill Outside) as well as some regional outdoor television shows (Georgia Outdoors etc). Henry continues to appear weekly on the Oneill Outside radio show. He is also the fishing personality on the video “Flyfishing for Landlocked stripers” which is available at many fly shops around the country.
