Richard A. Lewis resides in the high desert region of the western USA. He has a fondness for angling and advanced composite structures. Rich consults to the aerospace and sporting goods sectors. Some of his favorite projects include co-development of Hardy’s Syntrix Nano rods, Redington’s NTI-Q rods; along with some fairly complex spacecraft systems such as the Orion Lunar Lander and the New World’s Observer exoplanet spacecraft. Rich is a Six Sigma Greenbelt and holds multiple USA and Foreign patents.

Fly tying is his passion and Rich ties flies for all occasions: Sunfish to Sharks. Several of his fly patterns are sold through major outlets and he is always trying to stay abreast of innovative materials and tying techniques and tools. He can often be found in his den tying flies, or heading out to one of the local fisheries. He is a charter member Nye County Fly Fishers and a member in good standing of the Crittenden Social Club.
