Vail Valley Anglers Wade & Float Guide


I grew up in Marquette Michigan. I’ve been living in the vail valley for the last 4 years.

Guide Experience:

Guiding since 2021

Fishing Experience:

I grew up fishing for brook trout and lake superior run rainbows.

Exotic Experience:

Throwing streamers for musky and small mouth bass in the midwest will always be some of my favorite fish to chase. I’ve been lucky enough to fish for trout in Patagonia and catch a few redfish in the bayou of Louisiana.

Wish List:

Golden Dorado in Bolivia and Taimen In Mongolia


Keeping my raft upright in whitewater, camping, fishing, and traveling

Favorite Thing About Guiding:

Being able to share my passion for fly fishing and seeing clients' progression in the sport. There’s nothing better than the smile after a client lands their first trout!
