I started spin-cast fishing with my dad when I was about four years old at Lake Berryessa in Northern California. I converted to fly fishing when I was 15 years old at Lake Almanor, California. I’m in my fifth season of guiding in southwestern Montana for Sweetwater Travel Company. I am captivated by fly fishing because you never stop learning. I guide people who have fly fished for longer than I’ve been alive. But being able to provide that once-in-a-lifetime fly-fishing experience, having knowledge about where and what to fish in our local waters closes that gap a little.
