As a professional fly fishing guide, I’ve spent the last decade getting to know the rivers of Texas on an intimate level. It has become my life passion to explore these waterways but also share their wonders with others through angling and paddling. Seeing the look on someone’s face as they catch their first Guadalupe bass on a beautiful stretch of river is just as exciting for me as it is for them. Nothing tops wild fish in wild places, and that is becoming harder to come by these days. That’s why I am devoted to sharing my passion with others in hopes that they too discover a deeper connection and understanding of the natural world. I believe this is the key to fostering stewardship and creating the next generation of protectors of the habitats and species we hold so dear.
