I've been in the bicycle business for over 40 years. As a teenager I started out in the wholesale bike business in Waltham. Prior to opening my own business I did consulting. In 1985 I bought a small shop and doubled the size in one year. I also have been a fisherman most of my life. A phone call from a good friend resulted in starting a fishing charter business on Cape Cod. A few years later, after teaching people how to fish, I moved on and concentrated on the store. After 27 years in the city I moved to Ayer to set up a small shop. I have since resumed my fresh water fishing and started to fly fish again. I took up fly tying and love to catch fish on my personally made flies and as they say, the rest is history.
