Meet Our Guides
Bryan was born in Coeur d’Alene and has spent his entire life fishing and hunting in North Idaho. He caught his first cutthroat on the North Fork of the Coeur d’Alene River when he was three years old and hasn’t stopped since. His love for angling and the outdoors has taken him all over the Northwest in search of different species of fish, but his all time favorite is “to fish the Couer d’Alene drainage in late May and early June when the green drakes show up and make the cutties crazy!”
Bryan has worked at Northwest Outfitters since he graduated high school in 2004 and has held almost every position available in the fly shop. From winding lines and tying flies, to being an Orvis school instructor and the shop manager Bryan has done it all. While you may find him from time to time in the shop these days, his heart lives on the river and his passion is sharing his knowledge of fishing and the local water ways with others.
“I have a lot of fun teaching people to fly fish and sharing my love for the outdoors. From beginner to expert we will have a good time on the river!”
