Paul was born and raised in Kansas City, Missouri. He learned how to fish and spent most of his time escaping the city to the Ozark Mountains chasing smallmouth bass. His passion for fishing inspired him to look for a career working outdoors which landed him in Wyoming working in Grand Teton National Park. With the vast opportunities available, Paul’s fly fishing knowledge and experience expanded to cover the greater Yellowstone ecosystem by rowing the Snake River and hunting giant browns in remote wilderness. When he’s not fishing, he’s tying flies and getting ready for his next adventure!
