Dustin Carlson is a lifelong angler who channels his passion for the sport into all aspects of his life. Dustin founded Fishwest in 1999. In addition, he graduated from the University of Utah and currently serves on the Board of Directors for the American Fly Fishing Trade Association (AFFTA).
Dustin is often distracted by catching different species on a fly rod and has found a real love of chasing pike and muskie on the fly. He can also be found lost in thoughts of his next saltwater destination or the next time he can stand in steelhead waters casting a two-hander. Dustin lives in Draper, Utah with his wife and two sons.
