Born here in Vail and raised in Gypsum, CO
Began guiding professionally in 2019
Since I was able to walk I've had a fishing pole in my hand. Summer vacations were used to work on the boat and fishing. In 2015/16 I picked up a fly rod and it changed my whole perspective of being an active angler.
I've done some saltwater fly fishing in Florida but most of my exotic experiences come from lakes above 10,000 feet elevation. I am looking forward more salt water fly fishing in the future!
That's easy - the backcountry of New Zealand has been the dream trip since I started fly fishing!
Fly fishing, fly tying, hunting, snowboarding, camping, and hiking
Favorite Thing About Guiding:
You can't beat the ear-to-ear grin on a client's face when they put their first fish to the net. It's a glorious reminder of my first time and it gets me amped beyond words!
