John is as local as they come. Having grown up in nearby Vernal, Utah, he was exposed to the Green River at a young age. His passion for fishing was developed upon the numerous lakes and streams around the area, beginning at a very young age. When he discovered fly fishing, working for Trout Creek, at the age of 18, it was a perfect fit.
John has been guiding the Green River since 2006, in that time he has learned to become a patient instructor in the techniques and nuances of fishing the Green, with specific emphasis on his favorite techniques of dry fly and streamer fishing.
John’s passions for fly fishing, photography, and fish in general, have led him into pursuing a bachelors of science in Biology at the University of Utah. His hope is that his passion for fish, fishing, and the water will lead him to a long fruitful career.
