I am now a guide at The Yakutat lodge up in yakutat Alaska. I am working with one of my friend and fellow forum member Flymstr. I thank him for giving me the chance hope I made him happy with my performance. I will be going back for silvers and maybe sooner. Just got home from my first 15 days for steelhead. They were in a jam and I got called up to help, and just kinda got my foot in the door. Thanks to first off Aaron for the chance, and for showing and helping me so much. Also thanks to Damon for teaching me what u have if I didn't have u and your dad to watch I wouldn't know that creek and what I do without both u guys. Also Alan u got me started bud was only couple years ago u were hooking me up with my first steel. From that day on I have wanted to be a guide. I will remember you and that day of my first steel and salmon forever and is something very special to me. And I have always wanted to do the same for others because I know what a passion and love it can turn into... There are many others to thank but we will just leave it at that
