August 12, 1990, changed my life. Dressed in neoprene waders and a fishing vest loaded with flies, I accompanied two anglers on the frigid waters of the Frying Pan River in Colorado and provided them the opportunity to catch trout on a fly rod, and I got paid! So began this magnificent odyssey of fulfilling my dream as a fly fishing guide. Over twenty six years later the passion still flows through my veins with a vigor that is relentless and innovative. My heart thumps when a client hooks into a fish, and “set, set, set, set” will always be part of my vocabulary. Fly fishing is my life and guiding is my career. Each day I look forward to going to work, seeing old friends, and creating new memories. I look forward to seeing you out on the water!
