I am a teacher at heart, and my job is to share the knowledge I’ve gained over a lifetime of fishing and teaching, whether in a class or on the water with a guide client. I share my love for spring creeks and sight fishing with my clients on the well-known spring creeks of the Yellowstone’s Paradise Valley – Armstrong, Nelson’s, and DePuy’s. Floating the Yellowstone gives anglers a chance to fish a big freestone river and see local wildlife and learn local history.

If you would like more formal instruction, consider joining me for a class or clinic. If your booking requires additional guides, I’ll make sure they meet my standards of expertise, teaching ability, and good humor.
