I USE MY FLY ROD TO JUDGE THE HEALTH OF AN ECOSYSTEM

For those that have fly fishing DNA in their genetic make-up, every part of the process reverberates with the soul.  Fly fishing causes you to break it all down, analyze, put it all back together . . . 

When it all comes together and the fish takes a fly you have tied, on the lightest of tackle, you feel like you have insight into a world that you are not inherently a part of.

If, like JT, you spend a majority of your life in this endeavor your insight becomes acute awareness.  JT no longer uses his fly rod “to catch fish” but as an indicator of how the health of ecosystem has changed over the years.  JT is an advocate and champion of preserving the fragile wetlands of Texas; a unique saltwater habitat. 

Fishing is only one part of JT’s story, conservationist, father, musician, philosopher, and woodworker, JT brings a uniquely personal perspective to fishing and all that encompasses it.  In the digital age, his body of work can be found in print interviews, films and podcasts. 

JT is meticulous and thorough in all his endeavors.  It is a point of view we share.  Every SEAHOLM watch is meticulously detailed in thought, design and execution.  We break it down and built it back up again to make the best possible watch we can.  We are inspired by JT and look to him for continual feedback on process, aesthetics, and testing on and off the water.
