I want to share with you some insights I’ve developed over 38 seasons of fly fishing and 16 years of guiding. A good guide, in my opinion, provides a fun, safe and productive day on the water. I’ve come to realize that every day is important to live up to those criteria. Whether it’s an important family day, a mental health day out of office or just enjoying a day out fishing, I strive to make it happen to the best of my ability.
Some of the most rewarding moments as guide come with some kind of breakthrough moment- whether it’s working as a team stalking a rising fish and hooking it, having a son or daughter catch their first trout on a fly- these moments are the ones that create lasting memories and get me excited about each new day on the water. I build lasting relationships with my clients due to hard work, timeliness, honesty about the conditions, sharing knowledge, and catching lots of fish and big ones at that!
