    Mark Hieronymus

          Mark grew up in Western Washington and has been chasing salmon and steelhead for over 40 years. Lured to Alaska by the siren-song of commercial fishing money in the late '80's, he managed to come up with a work schedule that allowed him to sportfish all over the Pacific Northwest and Alaska for 6 months a year.
          After getting his Alaska sportfish guide license in 2004, Mark held dual citizenship in the sport and commercial fishing worlds for many years. Since his retirement from the Commercial industry in 2011 Mark has been a full-time flyfishing guide for Bear Creek Outfitters in Juneau, AK, sharing the incredible angling opportunities offered by Southeast Alaska with folks from all over the world. In addition to his relationship with Simms as an Elite Ambassador ,Mark is an ECHO Flyfishing and AirFloUSA Pro Ambassador, a SpeyCo Field Ambassador, and a Signature Fly Designer for Umpqua Feather Merchants.
          In the winter Mark works for Trout Unlimited, Alaska Program as the Sportfish Outreach Coordinator for Southeast Alaska, working on conservation and land use issues in "America's Salmon Forest", the Tongass National Forest.
          "As a fly-out fly fishing guide working in the Tongass National Forest of Southeast Alaska, high-quality waders and rain jackets are my work clothes for 150+ days a year. Alaska is notoriously tough on gear, and that's why I wear SIMMS gear - Thanks to the outstanding attention to detail and craftsmanship by the fine folks at SIMMS, my gear keeps me comfortable and dry season after season."
