LIndsay was the first pro team member to join the team, and she really reflects the type of personality that we here at Karanzas love to hang out with, easy going, funny, and a flyfishing fanatic.

I am an avid fly fisherman, fly tier, and artist. My home waters are those of the east coast of Florida (Indian River, Mosquito Lagoon), however, I also spend time each year fishing the world-class trout streams that the Smoky Mountains have to offer including the South Holston and Watauga rivers each winter. If I'm lucky, I'll make it out west to fish the Snake and Gros Ventre in Wyoming in the summer. I have a love for traveling (well, mostly fishing while traveling) and I hope to add Argentina, Alaska, and Bolivia to my flyfishing list in the future. 

When I was younger, I used to spend the ride out offshore in the family boat sitting in the livewell with the bait. Floating in the water made for one cushy ride - I smelled like a mullet all day

When I'm not working (clinical research), tying flies, or fishing, I am painting what I am passionate about - fish! I am the owner/operator of LMR Art (LMRArt.com) - my paintings of fish reflect the beauty and character that I see in each one. If I haven't caught one, I don't paint it. I prefer to stick with painting species that I have held in my hands or had on my line. My favorite fish on fly are bonefish, tarpon, and false albacore, but my favorite fish to paint are redfish.
