I am a native to Central Pennsylvania,
Cumberland County, where I grew up with hunting and fishing as a way of
life. My father taught me to be an angler and a sportsman from a very
young age. I’ve always had a passion for river smallmouth and there is
just something that draws me to them.
I find more enjoyment though
teaching the arts of fishing that I have accumulated. The smile on the
faces of my clients make me feel like a superman.
I really enjoy
the youngsters and the ladies, especially when they kick-butt.
Like many other guides, I too have a full time job but I have enough
vacation and weekends to make this gig work. It’s not about casting a lure
to the water but rather, casting the right lure to the right water and
that’s what I stress. I want you to “see” what I see, and understand that
these bass choose particular forms of underwater cover—and that changes
with the season.
From the early years of wet wading to the
current 18’ jet boat and reliable motor I run today, my goal has always
been the same, to understand the whys, where and the when.
is equipped with all the necessary equipment to handle these bolder strewn
rivers. I am equipped to run that boat because the most important thing in
that boat is the operator and his guests. Safety is my most important job
because I want you to smile—and come back. I spend countless days a year
on the Susquehanna and Juniata rivers chasing trophy smallmouth thanks to
my very understanding wife Mindy.
I look forward to showing you
what these great rivers have to offer.
