About MeUpdate Saved
I have been fishing the waters of Puget Sound since before my father would let me hold a rod. I always wanted to be a fishing guide since we went fishing with a guide when I was a kid in British Columbia. Since 1992 I have been the only guide in the State of Washington that features both Saltwater Fly Fishing and Light Tackle "Mooching" ( a bait fishing technique that was developed in Puget Sound in the 1930s).
I love fishing for the largest population of wild trout in the US. The sea run cutthroat is the best fishery in Puget Sound and it is rare to see another angler fishing when we are fishing from the boat.
When I have a day off from guiding I go fishing whether it is mooching for King Salmon, Fly Fishing for Sea Run Cutthroat trout in Puget Sound or Fly Fishing for Tarpon in the Florida Keys it's what I do.
No I don't golf.
