Jake grew up in Missoula, MT where his love of fly fishing began on the Bitterroot, Blackfoot, and Clark Fork rivers.
In 2012 he moved to West Yellowstone to work for Madison River Outfitters. After two summers of guiding walk trips, Jake bought an old Clacka LP and moved on to the full-time guide staff. These days he's guiding 100+ days mostly between June and October.
While it's hard to go wrong with any fishery in the West Yellowstone area, the Madison will always be Jake's top choice due to its beauty and diversity of applicable fly fishing techniques.
Whether it's swinging a Spey rod, throwing hoppers, or high-sticking through the Slide's pockets, Jake's local knowledge, patience, and teaching ability is a great fit for any angler.
