2014 will be my 11th year of guiding

fly fishermen on the waters of

South Central Missouri

I spent my entire professional career in Education and started guiding after I retired from the educational field..

I caught my first fish on a Fly Rod when I was 17 and  always thought about being a fishing guide someday.

I am an authorized Guide with the Ozark National Scenic Riverways and the National Forest Service.
