Zach is one of the newer and younger guides in my crew, and he is a fantastic addition. His enthusiasm for fishing runs incredibly high….so high I suspect it is fueled by Redbull. There may not be any “old guys” out there going fishing at dawn for a bit, before their work day, Zach does. He also has a fine collection of night-time brown trout photos another testament to not only his skill on the oars but his passion for fishing. Zach pours this same enthusiasm and energy into the guide day as well. He always has a smile and when you are with him you know he has found his place in the world. Zach moved from Tulsa, Oklahoma where he grew up catching bass, catfish, and carp on a fly rod during the spring and summer and spent the fall and winter hunting doves, ducks, and quail. In 2004, a family fishing trip to the Madison “sealed his fate”.
Oh yeah, and he is easier to give a hard time than any other guide you will meet so you should get out with him before he gets all grizzled and crusty.
