Michael (aka Ug) Gould

Growing up south of Denver on the Front Range of the Colorado Rockies, Ug was fortunate to have had the waters of the Blue, Eagle and South Platte Rivers to fish and explore during his youth, and it was in those formative years that a life-long passion for fly fishing began. After 4 years of college in the Pacific Northwest, Ug returned home to Colorado in 1995, settling in Steamboat Springs. His professional guiding career began in 1999, working a season for the Trevelin Lodge in the Patagonia Region of Argentina. In the years since, Ug had spent 12 years working for an Orvis-endorsed outfitter, where he crafted his skills as both a guide and an instructor. President of 2Salt Travel Inc, Ug leads hosted trips to outfitters and lodges in saltwater destinations that include Mexico, Belize and Cuba. Board member for the Yampa Valley Fly Fishers Association, the NW Colorado chapter of Trout Unlimited, Ug helps to put together their annual charity fundraiser, the Golf/Trout Tournament. A loving husband and father, Ug enjoys skiing with his family, floating on the river and travelling together in their camper. Always passionate about fly fishing, Ug likes to see people get excited about the sport and catch fish. A patient teacher, he works well with both novice and experienced anglers alike.
