About Me/Experience

As a kid, I grew up fishing the coastal waters of Neah Bay Washington with my family and friends. I started guiding in 1985 near Ketchikan, Alaska and have spent most my career on the outer coast of Prince of Wales Island. I worked for several lodges and resorts over the years and now have my own business which allows me to do everything possible to make your trip a quality experience that you will enjoy and talk about for years to come.

I hold a USCG 50-ton Master License with 36+ years of guiding experience in Alaska and Washington. During the off-season, I enjoy fishing the saltwater and rivers for Salmon and Steelhead, Big Game hunting and chasing Pheasants, Quail and Chukar with my Black Lab Bella. I welcome the opportunity to share my knowledge and experience while you have a safe, successful and memorable trip. See you on the water!
