Lenny, his wife Sally and his family have lived in the Nisswa area since 1970 and he has been guiding since 1973. Up until retiring in 2004 Lenny taught elementary education in the Brainerd Public School System. The combination of teaching and guiding in the summer months was a great match and since retiring from teaching he is able to guide May through October. Although he fishes all species his favorites would be either Bass or Walleye. Lenny especially enjoys meeting and fishing with new people and fishing with young people is always an interesting experience. Catching numbers of fish is always the goal but the main point is for everyone to have an enjoyable time.
