Ryan is a Colorado native that grew up in northern Colorado fishing the Big Thompson, Poudre, and North Platte rivers, as well as the high alpine lakes and rivers in Rocky Mountain National Park. He believes there is more to fly fishing than catching fish and has a true passion for guiding and teaching people all the sport has to offer. Ryan has spent many years guiding fishing trips and whitewater raft trips between Alaska and northern Colorado. He moved to Gunnison in 2013 and started guiding fly fishing trips full time, where he finished his degree in geology and now lives full time with his wife Cassie and their dog Orvis. Fly fishing is a life style to Ryan, so much of his free time is spent tying flies or exploring the vast fishing opportunities the valley has to offer. If you are looking for a fun filled and informative day on the river then stop by the fly shop and talk to Ryan. He would love to take you fishing!
"Many go fishing all their lives without knowing that it is not fish they are after."
-Henry David Thoreau
