Background
I was born and raised in Oregon. I caught my first steelhead at the age of 3 and first salmon not too long after at the age of 5. My father and I spent every weekend and some weekdays on the rivers. He taught me everything he knew, and I perfected it. I started guiding part time during my senior year in high school, and am now doing it full time in Oregon and Alaska. I love to be able to share my knowledge and the experience of being in the outdoors with everyone I can.   I am an experienced guide in Oregon and Alaska. In addition to being a licensed and insured guide in Oregon and Alaska, I am USCG licensed and have valid CPR and First Aid training.
Techniques
For steelhead we use many techniques such as: drift fishing, bobber dogging, beads, jigs, and bait. For salmon we use bobber and eggs, plugs, and troll various baits.
