Lance Leach, Vice President. I’ve been hooked on fishing since I was 3 years old when my granddad took me catfishing. In the early 70’s I learned to tie flies, 6 lessons for $10. I still have the first fly I ever tied. I can’t believe Gerding didn’t give me my money back and throw me out of his shop.
The next year I moved to Aztec, NM and learned to flyfish on the San Juan and joined NM Trout. I moved back to Albuquerque and finally retired last year. My job kept me on the road all week, every week. I can finally start attending meetings again and volunteering, and I look forward to serving as your Vice President. When I’m not on a stream somewhere, you’ll find me tying flies or making a bamboo rod.
