About Brian R. Ellig

Brian Ellig is recently retired from a thirty-seven-year career in procurement encompassing the construction and maintenance of numerous nuclear power and fossil power generation facilities from coast to coast. The last eighteen years of his career were spent in and around New York City, providing operational support for Consolidated Edison Company of New York’s (Con Edison’s) Indian Point Nuclear Generating Station, and upon its sale to Entergy in September 2001, for Con Edison’s massive power grid furnishing electrical power and gas service to the five boroughs and Westchester County.

He currently resides in Kohler, Wisconsin, with his wife, Karol; is an avid fly fisherman; is a collector of vintage fly fishing books and split-cane fly rods; and is a member of the American Museum of Fly Fishing, Catskill Fly Fishing Center and Museum, Trout Unlimited, and River Wildlife.

The Long Journey Home: An Angler’s Memoir of Passion Realized and Redeemed is Mr. Ellig’s first book. He is currently in the early stages of research for a second book, involving the serendipitous discovery of an endearing network of trout streams in the Black Hills of what was then known as the Dakota Territories— and the elite fraternity of personalities who once fly fished “The Black Hills Circuit”.
