Having grown up in the Rocky Mountains, fishing for trout has been second-nature to Jim since he was five. Jim grew up in Parker, Colorado and has explored the rivers of the Rockies throughout his life. Whenever possible, he joins month long camping trips in the Snowy Range in southern Wyoming and ensures that fishing is at the top of his priority list. In addition to guiding in Jackson Hole, Jim has spent many seasons fishing and guiding the clear blue waters and flats of the Florida Keys and the Gulf of Mexico. When he’s not fishing, Jim resides in Alabama, where he and his wife are raising their family; however, his love for fly-fishing in the Tetons, brings him back to Jackson each summer. He has been guiding the Snake, the Green, the South Fork, Yellowstone and many other regional waters for over 10 years. Jim was the high scoring guide of the 2006 Jackson Hole One Fly Competition and is also a recipient of the Carmichael-Cohen Memorial Guide Award. Jim’s expertise, patience, and out-going personality make each trip for his clients a memorable adventure.
