Born and raised in Bar Harbor, Maine, Kyle Shea is fly fishing guide, casting instructor, and fly fishing content creator/writer currently based out of Anchorage, Alaska. For over half a decade, Kyle oversaw Deneki Outdoors’ daily fly fishing blog while working as the head guide for Alaska West (a remote tent-lodge on the Kanektok River) in the summers and managing the fishing program at Andros South (a bonefishing lodge on South Andros Island in the Bahamas).
Currently, when not writing about fishing, hosting fishing trips, or actually fishing, he’s spearheading the branding efforts for Bristol Adventures, the parent company for four lodges in Bristol Bay; Kulik Lodge, Mission Lodge, Grosvenor Lodge, and Brooks Lodge.
Kyle is a Fly Fishers International certified casting instructor, and is passionate about fly casting instruction, both single and two handed. He’s also a proud Ambassador for both Airflo USA and G. Loomis Fly Rods, a signature fly tyer for HMH Vises, and a fly designer for Solitude Fly Company.
