Owner & Head Guide

Angling is more than what I do, it is part of who I am and my purpose. Guiding gives me a platform to share my knowledge and educate others while continuously improve as an angler. Challenging the status quo as an angler and a person is very important to me, always innovating new or traditional angling techniques and exploring new waters. Our attitude to self improve is what has allowed us to become diversified anglers and enables us to share the benefits of our pioneering with our guests

Chest waders are required for all salmon, steelhead, and trout trips. We recommend bringing your own but if you don’t have a pair, no worries, a pair can be provided we just need to know your size.
