I am a native of Morgan, Utah and grew up fishing the Weber and Green Rivers. I have great childhood memories of being shuttled up river by my parents and floating back to the house. The spring creeks that flow into the Weber instilled into me a love of stalking wary Browns in crystalline water. The challenge of multiple refusals and the thrill of presenting the correct pattern never grow old. I started tying flies at a young age and thought that since the Brook Trout in the Uintah streams would eat them that I was something else. I still have some of my original black gnats to keep me humble and to remind myself of how thrilling fly fishing can be at every skill level. Fly fishing is always offering new lessons and challenges
I started guiding on the Green River in 2004 with the intention of only guiding for a year or two yet I’m continually finding myself drawn back to this river that I love. Even after spending a month in Alaska or a season in Idaho I find the great days reminding me of a typical Green River day. The water clarity that allows you to spot a Green River Brown from afar, present to him and watch him lazily sip your dry can’t be matched.
I love to travel with my friends and family in search of new waters, ski and spend time with my sons Isaac and Dylan and my wife Chelsea. I graduated from the University of Utah in 2011 in Nursing.
