My Dad and Grandpa got me hooked on this life when I was about 6 years old. I've been fishing the Northwest rivers and ocean ever since! I love sharing my experience, stories, and excitement with all of my clients. My favorite thing is probably seeing the smile on a client's face when they hook into their first big fish... and there is nothing better than hearing a kid say... "got one!"
