Ryan was born and raised in Spearfish, SD and learned to fly fish when he was old enough to hold a fly rod. He obtained a degree in Wildlife and Fisheries Science from SDSU and worked for South Dakota Game, Fish, and Parks along with Idaho Department of Fish and Game as a fisheries technician. Ryan has been fortunate enough to fish in places such as Alaska, Belize, British Columbia, and a majority of the western U.S., however his favorite water to fish is still right here in the Black Hills. When he is not guiding you can catch him consistently crashing on his mountain bike, chasing carp with a fly rod, or trying to keep his energy filled chocolate lab in line.
