Austin Price joins PWWTU

Greetings future fishing buddies! My family recently moved to McCandelss from DC and I am excited to see new water and meet new people who share a passion for fly fishing and the outdoors. 
As a child, my parents gave me a choice. I could spend Sunday mornings in the church pew with my mother, or I could spend the morning meandering through woods and streams with my father. Either way, I had to report back on my reflections with three ways I could be a better son, brother and community member. The outdoors is still the place where I find serenity, physical challenge, community, passion and self.  We also spent many hours together fishing for all kinds of cold water and warm water species, but walking a small stream looking for natives was always our favorite. 
After grad school at Pitt nearly a decade ago, I lived and worked in France, Cameroon, California and DC. Through the chaos of early career and travel I backpacked and camped some, but not as much as I would have liked. As the demands of career and family life stack up, I am finding the ability to live in the present moment that nature gives me is central to how I take care of myself. I am at my happiest sharing the joy of flipping over rocks and finding what is around the next bend in the stream with my family or on a solo trip. 
I am relatively new to fly-fishing and largely self taught so I look forward to learning from and with all of you. Thank you and tight lines!
