Scott’s passion for the outdoors began on the trails and in the streams of the Appalachian Mountains near his hometown of Emmitsburg in Western Maryland. After moving to Colorado to become a forest firefighter, he got hooked on snow sports and launched a career as a snowboard rep. During the summers he naturally returned to his childhood love–fly-fishing.
For the last 25 years Scott has made his home in Summit County, CO, honing his skills on the rivers of the Central Rockies– the Colorado, Arkansas, Blue, and South Platte to name a few. He loves teaching and sharing his knowledge of the sport as senior float guide at Breckenridge Outfitters. Scott is an Orvis Endorsed Guide and pro staff for Hatch Reels. He is also a representative for RO Drift Boats and serves as a Colorado dealer for the company. Scott has traveled extensively and is equally at home on salt water, often leading international trips around the world.
Scott is living the fisherman’s dream on a small ranch off the Blue River with his wife, Mary, two-year-old son, Beau, and their loyal Australian Shepherd, River.
