 BIO

Dave first learned about trout fishing when he was in his early teens. He grew up fishing on Horsetooth reservoir where he and his family lived. There was a section of the reservoir that he could go to anyday of the week and catch trout all day long. Now, he calls the Deckers’ area on the South Platte his home water. “This is where I learned to fly fish and I think it was a blessing and a curse. Learning the sport on one of the hardest sections of river made for some very frustrating days, but I’m a better guide for it and it is such a fun place to fish and is always challenging.” Dave’s other interests include Mountain biking, hiking with the family, and snowboarding.
