Growing up in Oregon, Dave’s introduction to fly fishing began at an early age. His parents taught him the finer points and he soon sought out the area’s fabled steelhead waters. Since then, he’s traveled extensively, from India to the South Pacific. He’s the founder of Emerald Water Anglers, a fly fishing guide service and a stalwart advocate for regional and national fish conservation efforts.
