I started guiding in 2000 and opened the shop and guide service in 2001. I started the fly shop and guide service because it was a calling I simply had to do. When I opened the shop I wanted to make sure everyone felt welcomed no matter their skill level. I still have that concept today. In 2005, I, along with some other folks, started the Southern Sierra Fly Fishers whose mission has always been to better the Kern River Valley, the community and to introduce as many people to the sport of fly fishing as possible.
As an ambassador and guide of the river, I want to make sure that every person I guide or teach in my fly fishing school has the best possible experience. Introducing people to fly fishing, the outdoors as well as the Southern Sierra and Kern River will always be my passion. I have met some of the most amazing people through fly fishing including my professional guide staff pictured below. For more information about all the staff, please go to www.kernriverflyfishing.com
