Welcome to the new version of my old website,

           Fly Fishing for Steelhead


After several years of inactivity, I’m back to wake up and invigorate my website.

Last you would know from the old site, I was a guide working at Mission Lodge, and before that Kulik Lodge Alaska.  Actually, for the last 5 years I have been a guide at Dove Island Lodge, Sitka AK.  I’ve been guiding in Alaska for the last 15 years.  In that time I also spent 5 years in Chile during our winters here in North America, their summer.  To view the old classic site refer to “ The Classic Years”

What you’ll see in the current site is my life  and work pursuing STEELHEAD today.  Where I work in Sitka in the rivers, we have world  class fishing for some big Steelhead in early spring.  Through summer and fall our resident fish are mainly Dolly Vardon and Sea Run Cutthroat. The Salmon we fish for are Pinks and Chums most of the summer.  Then in the Fall it busts loose with some outrageous Sliver fishing. 

Mid September I go home to Lake Stevens WA.  That is when I enjoy “Me Time” for fishing.  Traditionally I begin a journey up the Columbia river stoping at my old haunts, the Klickitat, Deschutes, Grand Ron and Clearwater rivers. My furthest stop headed east is the Clearwater.  While at the Clearwater, I always take in the Spey Clave that Poppy’s shop, “The Red Shed” sponsors.

On a few special occasions, I’ve traveled north to BC Canada.  The Bulkley and Thompson rivers have great fishing for some special Steelhead.

The biggest change I’ve made career wise, is I’m teaching fly casting.  I’m certified through the Federation of Fly Fishers as a Casting Instructor - CI  &  Two Handed Casting Instructor - THCI. 

Spey casting has long been my favorite mode of fishing for Steelhead.  You’ll see and hear plenty of the Spey influence in my website.
