Chris has been hooked on fishing for as long as he can remember. Born and raised in Las Vegas, Nevada, he chased bass and trout in the valley and surrounding states. Chris took up the art of fly fishing which led him to become involved with the Las Vegas Fly Fishing Club and his local chapter of Trout Unlimited. He became an Angler Education Instructor as a volunteer for the Nevada Department of Wildlife. His community hours paid off as the agency hired him to help facilitate clinics across the state. He changed careers by moving to the National Park Service to gain experience in volunteer management and natural resources. After years of fishing in the desert Southwest, Chris made the move to better waters here in Jackson Hole. He has been exploring and fishing every river and lake he comes across as well as tying up a few secret patterns for the Snake River. Fishing the region has increased his knowledge and appreciation for the vast opportunities available. His passion for the sport is followed by sharing this passion with others.
