I began fly-fishing in the mountain lakes and streams in Arizona over 40 years ago. I have been fly-fishing Colorado since 1982 and spent the majority of my days guiding on the Front Range, specifically the South Platte tail waters.
As a former teacher and coach, I rely on my ability to breakdown the finer points of angling to help my clients quickly master the art of fly-fishing on adventures. I wrote The Fly Fishers’ Playbook, A Systematic Approach to Nymph Fly Fishing and am currently in the process of completing the 2nd edition of the book.
When I am not guiding, writing, filming or speaking, you’ll notice me on some river, somewhere. Don’t let my laid-back approach fool you as when I’m on the river, my attention to detail and building-block approach to fishing is calm yet intense. Although my motto is fear no water, you’ll share the sights, sounds and joys that come from simply being in the great outdoors.
