About the Author

I’m James Wilkins, a life long outdoorsman specializing in angling, hunting, hiking, and kayaking. Sometimes all at once.

After recently retiring from an emergency medical services career spanning nearly two decades, I started Authentic Fly Angler both as an outlet and a way to reach the millions of men and women wanting to begin or tune their fly fishing game.

Using my education in writing, a lifetime in the outdoors, and lots of hard lessons, I will share my musings and stories, sometimes calling upon friends and role models to share their wit and experience.
