I have spent the last 24 years guiding and fishing the waters of Northern Utah and Southwest Wyoming. The Green River Below Flaming Gorge Dam is my “Home Water”. Fly Fishing has taken me to Alaska, British Columbia, The Bahamas, The Yucatan, and Costa Rica. I cannot think of another pursuit that would take you to more spectacular places than fly fishing. I truly enjoy teaching anglers how to cast and how to fight and land large fish. Trout fishing in the Rocky Mountains has always been a passion for me, That passion led me to the fantastic Green River. After guiding on the Green for 15 years, my wife Marjorie and I were fortunate to buy a fly shop and guide service in Park City Utah, Trout Bum 2. We now have 3 children Emily, Erich and Hunter, all who love fly fishing and the outdoors. Somehow I still manage to chase Steelhead for a couple weeks every year. Steelhead fishing takes me to the Dean River in British Columbia every year, and also to Skeena country every fall. I enjoy Spey casting and the mystery of swinging flies for Steelhead. When the season is right you may find me chasing Elk in the mountains of Utah and Colorado with my bow. The rest of the year you can find me fly fishing and working at our shop in Park City. My dream trip would be to take my whole family Steelhead fishing on the Dean.
