A Little Bit About Me
It all began with passion. Passion for the trout. Passion for the environment. Passion for the challenge.
Twenty Two year of fly fishing experience later and still striving to learn daily. There is nothing better than being able to share my love and knowledge of Fly Fishing with others.
When I am not fishing my southeastern home waters, my other half and I spend time traveling across the country with our pup, camper, and a boat pestering other states trout.
Prior to transitioning into fly tying and guiding fulltime, I spent 15 years as a professional photographer. My love for nature and being outdoors is what fueled that fire. During my photography career I shot everything from landscapes to real estate, and portraits to weddings. I still keep my love of photography strong by capturing my time out on the water and the beautiful fish I am lucky enough to shake hands with.

What To Expect
Its go Time
First off, lets talk weather. It’s unpredictable, so be ready. We fish in rain, wind, snow, sun, hot, or cold. Check the forecast to ensure you are properly dressed for the predicted weather. The only reason we will reschedule/cancel a trip is if the water conditions are unfishable or upon your request. The rivers we fish are dam released and change frequently, but we stay on top of it.
We will touch base the night before, by 7pm, once the next days release schedule has been posted and have ensured safe fishing levels and water clarity.
The day of our float we will meet in the morning at our predetermined time, typically between 8 and 9am, at the take-out. We will run shuttle to the put-in and load and launch the boat.
Once we set sail, we will quickly anchor down, get rods in hands, and go over the basics to make sure we have a great day on the water. Whether you have never touched a fly rod or are a seasoned angler, we will do our best to learn a few things, catch a few fish, and enjoy the great outdoors.
After insuring comfort levels with the rod, we will get fishing. We will combine fishing while drifting and anchoring up at the good spots and picking them apart.
On full-day trips, we will stop for a lunch break. We will have a shore or in-boat lunch depending on conditions. Lunch options will be selected and discussed before hand. Once our bellies are full, we will get back to fishing and working our way to the take-out.
