Arrival in New Zealand

Its always a long flight to New Zealand, and no matter how long or short your trip anywhere,  you learn to change your thoughts. Luckily I flew Air New Zealand, and they really took care of me. For dinner I had the choice of either chicken or beef and you know what? I ordered them […]

Memories of past trips to New Zealand

Im currently in the SLC airport during a five hour layover, waiting to hop onto my flight to LAX, and then ultimately a 13 hour red eye tonight starting at 11 PM all the way to Queenstown New Zealand. I cant wait to get back to New Zealand to start my three month fly fishing […]

Getting ready for New Zealand

Every year as the guide season comes to an end I look into the possibility of exploring fly fishing opportunities in other countries. In the past I have worked on sail boats in Fiji, lived out of a camper van in New Zealand, and backpacked around South America to name a few. Now this lifestyle […]

Guides Trip 2014

Every year, after a long season of guiding, we are treated to a weekend of debauchery and over indulgence in beer, food, laughter and some much needed fishing.

First Tarpon on a beach in the middle of nowhere

The most beautiful time of year is here. Cooler temps and yellow foliage now grace our office views. The fishing has been amazing here in the mountains, I love this place we call home. I will fish every day until it snows so please visit once in a while to see what this place has […]

Mad to live

Our guide season is slowly coming to an end here in Jackson. The fishing is still outstanding. unfortunately the tourists are going home to their jobs, school, life in general. Being from a resort town like jackson the shoulder seasons bring a change of pace for those who live here. Although that shift can be […]

August always comes in with a blast

Jackson Hole is a lovely place to fly fish. Within an hours drive from the center of town lies multiple rivers, lakes, creeks, and endless opportunities to cast a fly at hungry trout. The snake river in Grand Teton National park is producing some of the best dry fly fishing around. Casting big foam grasshoppers, […]

Pigs in Paradise

As my 2014 guide season begins i’m restless. I have just come back from six months of travel. Sailing halfway across the world, island hopping alone, lonely, homeless, making friends, saying goodbye to brothers. 9 countries visited and many fish caught. The Caribbean is abeautiful place.  As life goes on it is important to maintain […]
