Brian started fly fishing on the local rivers around Mt Hood Oregon at a young age, followed by guiding and tying flies commercially for a local fly shop as a teenager in 1984. With a momentary lapse in judgement he started college to focus on sports medicine, but quickly regained his senses and transferred all of his pent-up casting energy to a fish biology degree. By 1989 Brian had started his own outfitter business guiding on the Deschutes River and Sandy River for steelhead and wild trout.
In the late 80’s spey casting was in its early stages, finding its way to the PNW steelhead scene and Brian’s new obsession. Both as a guide and steelhead junkie Brian recognized the potential in double handled rods to cover more water and be more efficient at swinging flies for steelhead. The steelhead Spey quest began and the rest is campfire lore, legend and history books.
In addition to his ‘old timer outfitter’ status on the Deschutes and Sandy River, Brian is a Pro Team Member and Ambassador for the following:
Winston Pro Team Member
Scientific Anglers Ambassador
Bauer Reels Pro Team Member
Umpqua Feather Merchants Royalty Fly Designer
To feed his year-round river addiction, Brian and his family reside on their 160-acre ranch near the Deschutes River in Maupin, Oregon.
