I am a 5th generation Creede, Colorado native and have been fishing the Rio Grande and surrounding tributaries for as long as I can remember. I started guiding the Rio Grande in the summer of 2011. The Rio Grande is a very special Dry Fly river and that is how I like to fish it. I am the type of guide who values how we catch fish more than pure numbers. That isn’t to say I don’t have 50 fish days, but believe that fly fishing is about the overall experience and minimizing our impact on a pressured fishery. I am always open to talk fishing and answer questions about the area, feel free to reach out.

Other interests include; hunting, wildlife conservation, aquatic biology, mountain lions, and hound dogs.

I am the owner and operator of Ramble House and Creede Guide & Outfitters located on North Main St, of Creede, Colorado.
