Born in Cincinnati, OH and very lucky to have been raised in SW Florida. Ryan had fish blood pumping though his body ever since he was a little SOB. Finding his love for fishing from his grandpa in Florida and knowing at very young age that fishing life style for a living was the career path he was going to follow for the rest of his life. He started his guiding career in Duck town, TN after attending Hocking College for ECO Tourism Business in 2001.
The past 17 years from the Bahamas to Alaska Ryan has worked very hard for many different outfitters/lodges and gained lots of experience on heavenly & challenging waters along with logging well over 14,000 river miles along the way. In 2011 deciding to follow his dreams Ryan and his wife Beth started Yampa Valley Anglers, LLC. Ryan is very passionate & dedicated when it comes to peoples quality experiences on the water. He loves spending time on all types of the waters, with all types of people, laughing & enjoying life. Teaching his love for fly fishing, rowing and always wanting to learn from others is what fuels his fire.
