I’m originally from Oakland. I went to Chico State, where I found steelhead fishing. I was hired by The Fly Shop in 2004. I started guiding for steelhead in Redding, CA with the swing method in 2006. Two years later, I went to guide in Kamchatka Russia. Now, I spend 2-4 months guiding in Russia for big rainbows and steelhead and 2-4 months guiding steelhead in Northern California. I also fish and host trips to Northern BC on the Skeena system in the fall. I fish steelhead with spey rods most of the year, but fish some trout, striper, and some salt water.
