Marty Sheppard Fishing Guide
Born and raised in Oregon, Marty grew up on the banks of the Sandy River. With his dad as a tutor and angling mentor, Marty landed his first steelhead at the age of five. During the 70’s his dad continued to home school and shape (perhaps unknowingly) Marty’s future by taking him fishing, seemingly every day, and instilling in him the instincts and techniques for perusing steelhead. Much of his fly-fishing inspiration came from devouring books, especially those written by such notable and insightful naturalists as Roderick Haig Brown and Bill McMillan. While still you and strapping in the 1990’s, Steve Kruse took Marty underwing and taught him the art of Spey casting. Perhaps it should come to no surprise that all these elements now manifest themselves as Marty’s unbounding enthusiasm for guiding-backed up by over a decade of professional experience in the “field’- and almost missionary zeal for teaching others and sharing in the pure joy of rivers.
