Vail Valley Anglers Wade & Float Guide
Great Falls, Virginia or Sanibel, Florida
Guide Certified Experience:
Certified in Spring of 2003. I guide over 150 trips a year.
I have been lucky to have fished most of Colorado and portions of Utah, Wyoming, and Montana; the Gulf of Florida, the Outer Banks, Nassau, and the Virginia River Valley. I have caught everything from small mouth bass to northern pike, salmon, tarpon, redfish, sea trout, and the goliath grouper.
My first tarpon from a kayak off the shores of Pine Island, Florida.
A summer in Alaska exploring the rivers and rippin lips!
Skiing/Snowboarding, Mountain Biking, Rafting, Camping, and a general passion for the great outdoors.
Favorite Thing About Guiding:
Whether floating the Upper Colorado, or wading the unpredictable Eagle River, I am always looking for the next big fish. As a guide, I enjoy creating an educational experience with easy-going instruction. Watching a young angler progress with my guidance is so gratifying. For the advanced angler, I find the challenge of pushing their skill set to the next level as rewarding as catching the fish myself. But in the end, it is just fishing, and I think I have the best job in the world.
