Quote: "Dream on"


I moved to Jackson Hole in 1995 from Morganton, NC and began working with Westbank Anglers in 1996 as a shop employee. I worked at Westbank as a shop employee and guide until 1999 when I got a 'real job' and worked in a local bank and a short stint as a investment advisor. In 2002 I purchased Westbank Anglers and in 2004 Katie and I had our first child, Lucie, next came Mason in 2006 and Colter in 2010, the rest is history!
